Dead pixels…I understand they can happen with flat monitors. That fact doesn’t make them easier to live with – which is what I’ve been doing for a little over 2 years. During that time, more and more pixels have died over an exponentially larger area of my laptop’s monitor – ultimately making it difficult to see what I was typing.
Purchasing a newer laptop proved a daunting task. The ability to play CD’s and DVD’s is being “phased out” of their functionality. (Apparently, owning music/movies is not much in fashion these days…fuck that!) I did not want to purchase a separate unit to play a CD or watch a DVD, preferring to keep my desk clutter-free. However, the nice folks at Best Buy in Folsom showed me two such soon-to-be-phased-out laptops which they had in stock.
I am writing this Post from an HP 17.3″ Laptop (Intel Core i5 8th Generation, 8GB, 1TB hard drive, Windows 10 Home edition). It’s hella-fast and the resolution is amazingly sharp. Played a DVD without a hitch and watched a movie on the Netflix app. Have not had a chance to test a CD, but I have no doubt it will work wonderfully! Very pleased with both the quality and price – and I can see what I’m typing now!
(Dontcha just LOVE my new Wallpaper…)
