I have been seeing recently adverts in the press for cheap laptops. Some as low as $450. I mean the big laptops not those netbooks.

My question is this. Are these laptops durable. Can I use such a computer for my work without any surprises down the road?

Netbooks, iPads and smart phons hav been choking the market for laptop manufacturers. This has forced them to drop prices to try to remain competetive and afloat in biz. If l were to ask yu what would yu like to hav, an iPad or laptop what will be your choice?

Having said that, sticking to the well known brand like Lenovo, formerly ibm, hp etc might guarantee yu some reliability even at lower prices. Also be aware that the most expensive part of a computer or laptop is software licencing which used to expensive from Micro$haft. Because of the rise in Linux computers and laptops, Micro$haft ar forced to reduce there licencing fees hence the drop in prices of pc and laptops.
