so my computer has randomly shut off three times in the last week. everything else stayed on (modem, monitor, power strip). i checked all the plugs, nothing is loose. when i restart, it is fine. the computer is older. bri built it in 2003.

two things....

1. anyone have any ideas as to why it is doing this?

2. avi and i are looking to get a cheap, yet efficient laptop. any suggestions?

I got a Dell Studio 17 refurb off their website for $600. www.delloutlet.com It's a pretty sweet machine. I would check their site, they always have a good selection and good prices. You have to deal with Windows Vista though. Sad

The macbooks at my office come off of lease in January if you can wait that long. My IT guy won't give me a price yet, but they run really cheap compared to buying new.

Sounds like it could be the power supply.
