New computers usually work better

3 posts in this topic

I just got a new HP Envy computer last weekend.  I tried going cheap with a low end 250 dollar HP at first and it was just too slow.  So I took it back to Best Buy and traded up during their 14 day return window, and I am thrilled with this new machine.  It has Windows 10 and  an Edge web browser.  I had been limping along with a six year old Compaq that still works OK for posting on forums, but that is about all I could do because the web browser was so slow.  Also, I have found that everything WORKS again, even on this web site....like the quote button, copy and paste features, and the emoticons.  And so far I have not lost any posts in the draft stage.

Yeah i tried one of those $300 or less machines.  They are terrible.  You read the specs and think "hey, still sounds a heck of a lot better than my old machine" but the industry is rigged so that you will always have to spend more if you want a decent experience.

 

The computers that cost < 300 are just so crappy they can't even properly handle the operating system that comes installed on them.

 

Glad you got something you like!

I have an HP Envy too and it still works pretty good after a couple years. I use Adobe Creative Cloud and I needed something with a lot of memory.
