Laptops/Screen Brightness Changes

The screen is always dimmer when the laptop is in battery mode - it's a power-saving thing and the laptop does this automatically.

Whoever said your laptop was "old" at 2-3 years..............well, my trusty Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro laptop is six years old and I am only now thinking of retiring it because my requirements have changed, and I can't do any more upgrades at this stage. It is the most robust laptop I've owned to date. The only issue I have is that the screen resolution is really bad compared with, for example, HP machines. Adjust the brightness with the function key and F8, F9 keys.

I am a computer science major and my dad is an Electric Engineering, so my life has revolved around computers. For as long as I can remember, I have been buying and selling computers. I tend to travel a lot, so I have always had a laptop. I have bought 5 of them for myself, and bought around 30-40 for friends and family. I have dealt with the good and the bad of various version and brand names. If you are in need of buying a laptop, feel free to contact me and I'm sure I will be able to guide you into purchasing the laptop that will be the best fit for you. I will custom build you computers for you to choose from so you can get an exact idea of what to go and buy when you do it yourself and so that you have an exact price. However, I am in the USA and am only knowledgeable about computers here in the US. I do not know about foreign currency or the quality of computer brand names outside the US.
