Tips To Avoid Expensive Laptop Repairs.

Lately, the my desktop computer has been behaving kind of cranky and will just hang or my monitor will just go blank. Last week, I was busy working on my computer and all the while my computer was doing fine until the work was all completed.

When I started my computer later in the afternoon, it acted up again. My monitor was blank and even after a few restarts, nothing was showing on the screen! I called up my regular computer man and was told to send the CPU over for checking. He found nothing wrong with my CPU but it needed some clearing of accumulated dust. Two hours later, my computer was back home and running smoothly. 
This desktop computer has been with me for many years and according to my repair shop, it is still in good working condition and in top performance. Anyway, I have been saving up some money just in case I might need to buy a new laptop in the near future. Meanwhile, I have been going online to find and read up on laptops. Even though it is not time yet for me to invest in a laptop, I enjoy reading about laptops articles and here is an interesting one about the "9 of most expensive laptops" that people own just for the sake of status quo!
