    We have a Compaq Presario V6000 that hasn't been able to be hooked up to the internet in 5 or 6 years. Virus? Haven't used it since. Wife says she needs to do a factory restore? The thing has gotta be at least 11 years old.

    We also have a 9 year old Macbook Pro. We never use it.

    All internet activity is on the phones nowadays.

    I was thinking of grabbing a new laptop today. I'd like to be able mess with pinball browser, and I would like to have the ability to possibly make my own Pinsound mix (can't use a macbook for Pinsound?). Maybe even manage some music for my phone (have kies on the macbook and it hasn't worked correctly in probably 2 years now). I have a Galaxy S9 if it matters. Lots of music on an external hard drive.

    Is there any cool deal out there today that anyone would say I should grab? I have absolutely no idea about features or specs. I pretty much want to at least do the stuff mentioned above.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    I had ordered something and passed out before the time you posted.

    After watching some cyber deal vids on YouTube, I got an HP Pavilion 15z touch with the upgraded screen for $499. It said it was a $850 savings. Idk. Hopefully it works out.
