Question: I'm downloading some movies and songs ect and i usually do it at night. Meaning that my laptop stays on over night, then during the day im using it for school and work, ect. Is it bad for the laptop to be kept on on for such long periods of times? I know desktops are built to never be switched off - is it the same case with laptops? daniel

No, laptops can overheat much more easily than desktops. As long as you can keep it cool, there won't be any issues -the only danger is overheating. If you notice it getting too hot, you can try getting a fan for it, the kind that just sit under it -that's usually enough to keep it cool. Of course, not all laptops are created equal -some can handle things better than others. Try looking around online to see if people have complained of heat damage to your particular model.

No, it's not worth it. Not enough ram (how they expect XP Pro to run on that with 256mb or memory is beyond me). Plus any streaming multimedia is going to run like molasses The drive is too small. The processor is a dog. And I don't see any way to network, either wirelessly or using Ethernet. For a few quid more, you can get a brand new netbook that has more capability than this, and you can use it on the net. Bad deal, mate.

It's best to only keep the battery in when you're not connected to a power supply. There's nothing majorly wrong with leaving it in, but it does shorten the life of the battery in the long run. However, if you take leave your battery out for some time, recharge your battery every so often (once a fortnight or something).

I killed a heat synch by leaving my laptop on 24/7. But that laptop was from 2002. I don't think it's as dangerous now as it was on older models, but it's probably a good idea to at least put it in sleep mode every once in a while.

I've never had a problem. Though its a good thing to restart your computer after downloads are complete. I only turn my laptop off if I am going to be away from home for a couple days or if it starts to lag.

well yes and no, make sure your laptop in on a solid base ,and not on say a bed or on top of some cloth as the lap tops take air from benateh, and the one thing that might mess up if you use it for too long is the battery charger ,as they do get warm, that is if you use it for long periods everyday

Marlene Originally Answered: I have an extra-wide laptop (13"). What's a good online source for purchasing cute 13" laptop cases?
Do you mean it is extra-wide as measured accross the front, or is 13" the diagonal screen size? If you can provide an exact model # and height/width/depth measurements, I would be willing to try to research it for you (I'm bored). EDIT: Well I guess I can't be of any help afterall. I have zero experience with purchasing laptop cases from specific companies/websites. : (
