Advice From Other Laptop Owners


Recommended Posts

Only me folks. Just a quick question.

I've got 2 laptops and no tower so I'm thinking of buying one of these (follow link below)

Has anyone bought one, or know someone who has, and if so, do they work. I don't want to waste my cash on rubbish.

Another cheaper one is on the following link.

Its so I can watch footy whilst waiting for my daughter when she's at her belly dancing lessons or if the kids are hogging the TV whilst footies on. I could sit in the car with the laptop on and put the aeriel on the roof say? What do you think?

Thanks

You should ask Knack CTB, he gave me good pointers when I was looking for a new PC and according to Coopsie he's the man in the know when it comes to computers :thumbsup:

Freeview is perfect my side of St Erth, other side of village under the hill has a few problems.

Belly dancing lessons for daughter are at Pool, in Redruth and also in the junior school by Tesco's, Camborne.

I usually sit in car reading e-books but they get boring after a while and Radio 5 live is not that great on a Thursday evening.

I've just realised the examples I gave aren't Windows Vista complient.

So far I've bought a digital camera and one of those 3 in 1 digital camera/voice recorder/camrecorder and they won't work with Vista. It's a bl**dy pain in the neck cos I wanted pictures of footy grounds for the combo website. Anyone else got Vista and has the same problems?

The item below complies with Vista.

I thought it would be a good idea to buy a TV card for my computer. Although it works if I want to watch TV I put the TV on. SO treat it as a gimmick rather than a TV replacement

I've got the "Peak DV3".

Works no problem. Used in the camper van and it's great if there's a good signal.

Drains the laptop battery of course so make sure that you have a car power supply if you want to watch it for any length of time.

I use it as a TV in the flat with a computer monitor. You can set it up so the TV appears full screen on the monitor and you can work away using the laptop screen

Brilliant and cheaper than a freeview box!
