    Is it ok to unplug my laptop battery and just rely on the power cord?

    I'm using Predator 300 Helios 2018 and the most common problem of gaming laptops is overheating. Right now, my laptop is fine and not overheating but I'm trying to reduce it's temperature and I was thinking it may help if I unplug the battery and just use the power cord since I'm using the power cord all the time but I'm not sure if it's ok to keep the battery unplug.

    Would you pay 1100-1500 for a laptop computer?

    Favourite answer:

    would i pay that? no. but there's not that much for me to do on a laptop. they are inherently low power, so even a fast one won't perform as well as a desktop would.

    if it absolutely has to be portable though, and max speed doesn't matter as much, then that would be good, IF the specs were awesome.

    also, fyi, marking a computer as a "gaming laptop" instantly lets them mark it up over $1000, but that doesn't mean it is worth that. i've seen $600 computers with better specs than some $1000+ laptops. it's just one of those words like "gourmet"...it doesn't really mean anything.

    What is the difference between tablets and laptops in longevity and use? ?

    Finally got my stimulus check but I definitely need a lot of stuff for that on check. My Windows 8 broke down and I am using an old 4G Ram Windows 7, which has a lot of security holes. I figured it up and upgrading an OLD computer would cost more than getting a new or refurbished one. I am looking on Amazon and I see tablets and 2-in-ones that offer the same packages as laptops. The only difference I have heard is when a tablet is gone - it's gone. But I have heard that laptops are super expensive to repair. Can anybody tell me from personal experience?

    What's a good price for a Laptop computer?

    Favourite answer:

    Consumer grade around $500. Business grade about $1100. Most of the difference between the two is the quality of the chassis (more metal parts), hinges etc. and more durable components on the motherboard of a business class laptop.

    Most likely the screen hinge is broken - you will need to take it to a tech for the hinge to be repaired. The hinge anchors to the case which is why every time you open the screen the corner lifts

    My "u" key on my laptop keyboard doesn't work. How do I fix this?

    Hi. I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E530 laptop. I do a lot of typing on it. I don't know what happened but the "u" stopped working. How do I fix this?

    I have tried troubleshooting this using resources online. I tried disabling Sticky Keys and doing other things in my computer to try to fix the problem on my own. I have cleaned my keyboard and the "u" key still isn't working.

    I was thinking maybe I should call Lenovo and ask them to help me fix it. Should I do that? Or should I call my nearest comp shop and ask them if they can fix my laptop and if so, ask how much it would cost for them to fix it?

    I don't like having to use a virtual keyboard. I have used that and it's too cumbersome. When I want to use a "u" or "U" when I type I scroll over and highlight a "u" or "U" from online text and cut and paste "u" or "U" from online text using "Control C" and "Control V", but this can be a pain in the butt too when I want to alternate between "u" and "U"; it also takes up too much time having to correctly spell words my laptop highlights for me when I am typing.

    Please help. Thank you.

    Why is it so hard to find a 2021 gaming laptop in stock anywhere?

    Razer Blades... out of stock

    Asus Tuf... out of stock, or too expensive

    Rog Zephyrus f15... out of stock everywhere

    The only gaming laptops I can find are older model 2019 and 2020 releases.

    I'm trying to get the Asus Tuf Dash F15 myself, which is only available at a decent price from Best Buy. It almost immediately sells out, like bots are buying them. This includes the open box models.

    What the hell? Why is it so hard to find a 2021 gaming laptop that is actually in stock!?
