I really don't like spending a grand every four or five years on a computer I barely use and never abuse.

That's $1200-$1500 every for or five years. Personally I'd rather have a new computer.

Re: Need Windows Laptop For Quickbooks


You need a new repair guy if he can't handle a simple virus and like inner said majority of the time it's a hard drive failure.

I haven't bought a computer in years I reinstall every year and my newest machine is from 2012 not a single problem .

If you want pm me Id be happy to quote you some remote service to work on the virus removal and a tuneup

Yeah, it's kind of a wash.

I just hate the principle that a barely used machine doesn't work after four years.

I did a quick Google and came up with this site:

Comes with one year parts and labor warranty.

Re: Need Windows Laptop For Quickbooks


Since I just did this. I can tell you what I did. Not sure if itís right.

My main computer is getting old. Doesnít always work the way it should.

I started usingQuickbooks. at the first of the year. I went to Walmart and bought a cheap computer. $300 out the door.
I only run Quick books on it. I prefer to keep that completely separate and I feel better having it in a brand new computer.

Re: Need Windows Laptop For Quickbooks


I use a thumb drive.
I can pull it and give it to my accountant, if needed.

Works for me. So far anyway.

Re: Need Windows Laptop For Quickbooks


Well, got the cheap computer. I couldnít get out of Best Buy fast enough. That place sucks. Started the thing up and initiated it and then it went into a 3+ hour windows update. Iím definitely not going to use this stupid thing for anything else other than work related stuff. Canít believe the amount of popups and ads on web browser as well. Glad Iím a Mac guy.
