Hello Geeks2go, been a while. Love this site, glad I came back. Anyhoo, my HP Pavillion DV 6 laptop(around $1000 w/ out the accessories and plan we got for it.) I got for college ended up being a lot worse than I could have ever imagined. Even when not gaming, the thing overheats, and I always have to have the cooling pad under it. It freezes up randomly, like when I take the power cord out(?), is pretty bad for any gaming, has a horrid trackpad, pitiful speakers, really bad battery life, a hulking disk drive. This laptop sucks. My parents and I when buying this thing were smart enough to buy staples 2 year warranty for it, so im thinking I will be able to trade it in for something that is satisfactory.
This means that I can get store credit for this hunk of junk, but im not sure if I would want to replace it with a comparable laptop, or a tablet. So I need some advice if I should get a replacement laptop or a tablet. I really dont want another HP, but im open to suggestions. Im going to use the machine(either tablet or laptop) for watching videos, surfing the web, typing up documents, and listening to music. Im open to suggestions.
