Thread: Best Laptop to buy?

    Default Best Laptop to buy?

    OK, before I get told to do a search, I did. I found a question about a tablet operating system, and a bunch of tuning questions, but I can't seem to find anything about which Laptop is the best when you plan too keep it with the car. I've searched "Computer" & "Laptop", what am I doing wrong? I think you'd want something robust, like maybe a Toughbook or something, but I'm kind of computer illiterate. Cam someone please direct me or suggest what is best? Thank you!

    I still have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 laptop with Windows 7 Pro, but I now use a Panasonic Toughbook CF-31 with Windows 10 Pro. It's the best laptop computer I've ever used! We've been through many other name brands at work, and the Panasonic Toughbooks have been the best. The best place to purchase a refurbished laptop is Bob Johnson's Computer Stuff. I won't purchase from anywhere else. FYI: The newer Holley EFI software programs aren't compatible with Windows XP (LINK).

    As usual, Danny you're a saint. Thank you. This will only be used with the car, so I don't need tons of ram and such, correct?

    You're welcome, and thanks for the compliment.

    Yes, but don't get a really cheap slow laptop that will freeze up either.
