So going to Germany soon...laptop stuff

BTW, not my idea of a vacation...spending 2 weeks there with the in-laws They all speak marsio....err german.

The wife is German. She is taking the kids over a week early. So I gotta week for myself Told her I was gonna have some Concubines over. She deadpanned..."make sure you clean the sheets before I come back".

So, do I need a new laptop? I need to do some business/play time (WOW) over there to escape. My old one should be fine as to business crap.

My current system is a 2007 Acer Aspire 5735 Process spd intel T3400 2.16 GHz, RAM 2 Gb, 32 bit OS, Realtek sound/vid/game controller. OLD.

So what laptop should I get? For business (will do Skyp and small data downloads) so I'm looking for some fun and do some gaming whilst they speak gibberish, is there anything reasonable? $500?

I found some laptops at Best Buy but were only doing 1.5 GHz. What should I be looking for?

Most notebook adapters are designed to run 110 or 220. A regular plug adapter will get you by.

Check the back of your power adapter to be sure.

Oh, and double down on the beer. And the schnitzel. All German food was designed to be good with beer.
