    Hi, I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation

    Ok fair enough, that Dell I had was a desktop too. I sure appreciate your advice and I'll keep you posted on what I end up getting. Have a good day! :)

    Hi, I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation

    Hey...good morning...I put that Dell E6520 on my list for later. I was on Groupon checking out the deals on Apple products. Idk, he probably wants that because his BFF has one. Me personally, I'm not a big fan of them. Yet, people I know who own one love it and says it out lasts the other...

    Hi, I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation

    I agree about Craigslist, I've had awesome experiences when I lived in RI. Here in Florida not so much. So...so far I'm leaning towards the Amazon Dell for functionality and price, it's also the best way to get it to my son. Plus I can get a protection plan and Amazon customer service is...

    I do really like the Dell you first suggested the E6520. It's ok to buy it used or refurbished? That is a good price on Amazon however. The certified pre-owned at Target is $399. I just don't want him to have any problems since then it would be my ex-husband dealing with it and I don't want him...

    Idk it just seemed that some users of GoPro had a harder time editing on their laptops because the files are large. If you're saying it shouldn't matter than great. I'd much rather him have a laptop. So which one...Dell or the pricey MacBook? I did check out the one Dell model you recommended...

    My son and I were just texting and he wants either a Chromebook or a MacBook. Now since reading some other forums about the GoPro files perhaps a desktop would be best like you first suggested Andrew. I have until April so I guess I should start saving LOL.

    Ok Andrew, thanks. My experience with them was like almost 20 years ago so I'm willing to be open minded. A lot of my friends have recommended them too. I just thought I'd ask you tech experts since my friends are much like me, clueless. Whatever you post I'll look up :)

    Hi, I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation

    I'm willing to go up to $500 tops for something he can use for a bit.

    Hi, I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation

    Ok, let's just zero in on a laptop for use with his GoPro LOL. No gaming since I'm not prepared to spend $1,000 for sure. So the HP isn't enough? Which Dell would be the best? I've had a bad experience with Dell in the past so I'm hesitant to give them my money again. There's so many out there...

    Hi, I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation

    Ok, I didn't realize that gaming computers are expensive. He does have a gaming system, XBox360. So really this is specifically for the camera. I checked on Amazon first since I do 99% of my shopping from there. I can spend $300 to $400 tops. The one I zeroed in on is a HP 13.3 inch Intel...

    Hi, I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation

    Yes, he wants a laptop. This way he can travel with it and share it with my other son. There are sooo many options out there. I am buying it online and shipping it directly to him. I live in Fl and he's in RI so this is what I always do for gift giving. I just want to make a good choice, have...

    Hi, I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation

    I don't even know if I'm in the correct forum LOL..like I said I'm a not so tech savvy Mom who needs a recommendation for a laptop for my 10 yr old son. He got a GoPro camera for Christmas from his Dad....we live in different states so I'm unsure of which model. He has asked me for a laptop for...
