so, my laptop broke awhile ago, and sony sent it back saying that it broke in shipping and it would cost way too much to repair so i should just buy a new one.
1. does anyone know of any good, cheap laptops that are good for college students? I don't need anything too fancy. It just needs to have wireless, a word processor, a fairly large hard drive, and be a reasonable size that I can carry it to class and such. I'm better used to PCs (my now defunct laptop was the new beautiful amazing Sony Vaio with the fabulous x-brite screen....tear) but if you know of a really good Mac, that could work too.
also, in the meantime, i'm using a fairly frankensteined computer, that a few comp-sci friends of mine made. But they put some weird version of Windows XP (Home Edition) on it, and now it keeps flashing and says I only have 4 days left till activation.
What does that mean? My boyfriend says I need an access code or something, but I'm not sure what that is or where i could get one/
I only have 4 days though, and i have like a million papers to write inbetween now and then, so help!!
