    Now, After feeling sad whole Day. It's Time for me to start searching for a New Laptop. So By next week I can Purchase it.

    Sorry you had to go through that. Give us some details on what you want to use your laptop for and possibly what your budget is for a new computer. Otherwise, it's awful hard to make a reasonable suggestion.

    ALWAYS do backups!

    If I were you I would go with a Lenovo, i5 or i7, at least 8 gigs of ram, 1TB hard drive for storage, and most important of all: an SSD. Either go with a 15.6" and remove the optical drive to mount an SSD instead, or go with a 17" and you will probably have two hard drive slots, so will be able to mount an SSD without removing the optical drive.

    As of today I only have a chromebook ( samsung) It works amazing but there are some things that I need that a Chromebook just can't do. I needed a regular laptop commuter. So Saturday night I went digging online and found this. Plus I ordered through a cash back website with my paypal card and ended up getting almost 10% off/back so It worked out great.

    [h=1]Refurbished: HP EliteBook 8440P 14" (1366 x 768) Laptop - Intel Core i5 520M 2.4GHz, 4GB 320GB, Webcam, Wifi DVDRW, Fingerprint Reader - Win 7 Pro 64[/h]

    Then consider a desktop. Laptops aren't designed/built for multiple days of uptime.

    I' go with what you'd use it for:work can go on the cheaper side or snatch up a surface pro 3, play you can get into alienware style specs etc. I'd do a sneaky move of just looking up on Amazon or Ebay for great pricing.
