    On second thought I can deal with just the computer then it would bring up the quality. I guess internet ready and I like hp's. It mentioned on one that there was no cable which i think is the same as the Ethernet but it seems it was called html or is that something else. There seems a lot to consider

    I actually buy second hand laptop, often functionally normal, I bought quite a few of them already from online bidding platform in Taiwan, its cost roughly ranged from 40 to 60 USA dollars per laptop depending on number of bidders. When purchasing laptop, I always take quality of computer brand and its durability into consideration, and I always purchased same brand, same model for refurbished use. When parts of my computer broke down, I could replace parts since parts are interchangeable. I could take parts out and assemble parts with other same model computers which have the same missing parts and assemble them, so instead of dumping two laptops all into trash can; at least I could at least keep one that is working.

    In the $150 range there's not much you can get. Umm, there are some HP computers in Walmart that cost around $150 but I wouldn't really recommend them. You could however buy a used computer for around $200 on Ebay or something that would serve you a lot better. But if you can only afford a $150 computer your only choice really is an HP from Amazon or Walmart really. They don't really sell good computers for $150 these days unfortunately.

    Omgoodness,. Looks like you found a good one. Do you know about them? I never heard of it. Do I you think I should buy an external blu ray. Would that work well with a computer. Seems like there were only a few with Blu ray. I am excited with what you found. I don't have wifi yet would it have a modem for dialup, probably not. Usually not both. Do you know what excessories I would need? Thanks so much!!!

    So I am sort of confused. It appears hardware is external. Maybe a CD/DVD external. No speakers. Mostly it depends on another device for Auxillary like a tv which would supply all it needs for auxiliary. It's a brain with lots of jacks, lol. I am old school, like my tv and monitor, VCR, DVD separate, lol. I will think on it. I would rather it be a stand alone. But can't quite figure out the speaker need. Doesn't look like it would have an orifice for the plug in speakers. The new is old again, lol. For bad backs it's perfect. Hard to believe it fits in your hand. Bad reviews at the end, YIKES
    Thanks very much for the time you spent on this and your input.

    Pretty funny, I was looking for other things as I wasn't ready to commit and it jumped 50 dollars, lol. I am not comfortable having my PC and tv combined. I like the tv to be on when I am on the computer. They do have them else where for a similar price if I decide to go with it. Did you see the one shaped like a triangle? Cool:)
