Don't feel bad. I got comp issues over here. I'm questioning if my hubby's motherboard isn't going out. He lost a stick of RAM, lost the hard drive, and now has lost another stick of RAM all in the space of a few months.

Heya guys!
Overall it seems my PC problems are beyond repair and my PC is already over 5 years old too. Hence I want to buy a laptop (for transport reasons).

Since there are some PC pros and PC experienced people among the underdogs and many with laptops around I thought maybe you could give me some advice as to what sort of laptop would be right for me. So here are my criteria:

1-My cash limit is around 800 Euros/Pounds. +20% maybe but less is better ofc.

2-Of couse I should be able to play rappelz with it.
The recommended requirementsd for rappelz you can find here:
Rappelz Requirements

3- Playing Rappelz means I should be able to use it 16 hours a piece without it overheating.
Even better would be if I could leave it on all the time but I guess that is asked a bit much.

4- The screen should not be too small. If I visit a normal page (like the underdogs forum or youtube) I do not want to move the page left and right. I want to see the whole page on the screen (of couse i would need to scroll down but what I mean is 'width').

4- It needs at least 3 USB plugs so I can connect a mouse, a memory stick and my iPod. Preferably more.


5-It should have a CD thingy (where you put CDs in) so I can listen to musik and a CD burner would be cool too.

6- If it had a camera and mic that would help my skype and TS availability.

Well if anybody has a suggestion. HELP!
Thanks in advance and see you guys around in game soon.

PS @ Dire: I have no idea how to find the thingy with the little cylinders in my PC.

You open up the side of your comp and look at the card your monitor is plugged into. Look at the cylinders on that card.

Thank youy all for the feedback. It helped me find the laptop, which probably is right for me. It costs 617 Euros, including delivery cost.
Dire I tried opening my PC and found a ball of dust. I did not get as far as the graphics card. I will try to dedust it and then see if I can open it to get to the graphic card.

I will likely buy the new laptop in 4 days. Before that I will try to get my old PC working.

No WONDER your comp flipped out! You really SHOULD open it once a month and use a can of compressed air to blow the dust out. It causes MASSIVE overheating in the modern computers. lolol

I just dedusted it last night. It took me a semesters worth of ear cotton sticks, a meals worth of saliva and (ok you didnt need to know that) several cloths of fabric to get it done.
I removed about a handful of dusk just by grabbing it.
I ended up with a smokers koff for the night. Wish I had started this outside my room. Had to blow my nose- grey snot. Laughing about it made me koff again.

In addition to the dust I also found 200Euros (2x50 and 1x100) which I had ingeniously hidden there years ago. It might be that the money or the dust did cut some circuits short. When I started my PC again I had the same problem. Upon a second restart everything was fine, although a bit slow and I could do some trouble shooting.

That brought me far enough to tell that my graphic card is unsuitable for use with windows 7. Stupid rapair men at Saturn (in Germany thats one of the bigger computer and technology firms) should have checked that BEFORE they went ahead and installed the system.
I could even play Rappelz then but the PC asked me to save the changes, which I could not do that night. Hence it might have been a fluke or a last breath that my PC did. It doesnt change the fact that I will be getting a laptop. I mean 2 PCs- hello BUFFSLAVES!

If I had known how easy it would be to dedust it, then I would have done that earlier.

Oh and concerning my last post. I mean I found ANOTHER handful of dust after I opened it now.

Buying a laptop was delayed because the prices will drop during the X-mas and New years time. Can't wait to play again.

Thats one of the draw backs of DDO. Physical Range is pretty weak compared to hand to hand, but its pretty easy to make a ranger/fighter build that can rock the bow, and do viable TWF melee. Maybe when i get some character space Ill make a Direwolfling Ranger...
