Hello, A couple of months ago, I needed an affordable laptop for work as my netbook was, to quote IBM in 1983 on the Apple II, "too small to do serious computing". As Apple are my number one technology brand, I looked around for a cheap Powerbook G4. I was centimeters away from buying a top of the range maxed out Powerbook on eBay until my parents said this: "The laptop is 5 years old, it is very likely to break down". I explained to them that some people use the same Apple product for 20 years and that people still use the Powerbook G4 as their main computer because of its reliability. They didn't listen. So, instead, I had to find a Windows laptop. I found the HP G62, which I bought because of it's Core i3 processor and overall performance. To be honest, I'm slightly disappointed. The whole thing is made out of plastic, and it just feels cheap. I knew I would feel this way about it in the bottom of my heart, but I reassured myself that I've taken too much Apple Kool-Aid. But, no. I can just imagine opening the beautiful Powerbook and it being such a joy to use with its aluminium surfacing. Ugh. What can I do to help numb the pain?
