    Thanks Neil Is there one that plays blue ray too? We have a few movies in that format. I was going to look at my trailer TV today to see what inputs it has to see if it is possible to use the laptop to play movies or show pictures.

    Thanks for the help folks

      Yoda sure here's one that had a bunch of reviews, no personal experience. Been forever since I tried blue ray on a PC or laptop the software used to be tricky to get it to work back in the day, might be better now. I've switched to digital copies or streaming.

        One other dumb question. If it says windows 10 is it compatible with Windows 11?

          Pretty sure thats the case. I have not upgraded any of our systems to 11 yet, (medical runs way behind the rest of the world), but my understanding is its backwards compatible.

            I've been satisfied with Lenovo Ideapad that I bought at Office Depot, Durango. Like most, no cd/DVD drawer. 15" not 17". And not terribly expensive. Replaced my 17" hp pavilion when it's screen failed.
