Ok. My laptop sees no power usage - Simple internet, some photo editing, some CD burning, and some music ripping. Thats it and hence why I have been happy with the features of CHEAP laptops. First was the Compaq (yeah I know). And now with the Toshiba. Well they were perfect for my needs except for one fatal flaw in both! The damn hinges that the screen swivels up and down on BREAK! Basically rendering the thing useless as the screen just flops open and closed and back and forth - yada yada. Seems both lasted exactly 2 years. So I need a stronger laptop with the meager features mentioned above. I open and cloe the laptop frequently as I use it as a LAPtop. So I just need something that will hold up to that simple "abuse." I have never dropped my laptops or done anything except open and close frequently, but both have seen early demise due to breaking screen hinges. Any ideas for a reasonable laptop that will hold up?
