    19teal93lx I'm only 5'8" and I have a small penis.

    Any suggestions?

    Will be used for:
    web browsing
    email
    photo storage/light editing
    fapping
    NO GAMING

    Are there any brands to stay away from? And does anyone have experience with Windows 8?

    Flash! Some say he once threw a microwave oven at a tramp

    Budget? Any particular size?

    I would completely avoid Gateway and eMachines. At the lower end I would also personally avoid Samsung, Toshiba and Asus simply because it's more difficult to get support, although there are some exceptions.

    There is a learning curve associated with W8. It will be steeper for power users of W7 simply because many of the shortcuts have changed. It would be ideal for touchscreen devices but I think it's less than ideal for non-touchscreen devices, but it's growing on me. I would not hesitate to buy a new computer with W8.

    LMAO @ Gateway and eMachines!

    Get the new Google book. It covers everything in your criteria.

    Less than $500. 15.6"+.
    I was really surprised to see W8 was a touch-based OS. Can you still use a mouse at all?
    The Google Chromebook? Or whatev? They aren't ideal for storing photos or running other programs besides a web browser from what I've seen.

    Wound up getting an Asus last night. So far, so good lol. W8 is definitely going to take some getting used to. I hate how when you click on an app it takes a few seconds to load and the screen is sooo bright from whatever color the tile is until it does come up.
    And the fucking idiot sold me a printer that's not compatible with W8.

    Asus is a good choice. I have one of their mini faptops, and I'm pleased.
