Ref the Hinge problem.  I have 3 old NEC's 1 old Toshiba laptop etc.
I found that the Toshiba hinges hold up for years and years,  but
the NEC's are breaking on me one at a time. I have 3 of em and
only one left that can open and close.   The others I just opened
them to desired angle and used 5 min epoxy to seal them rigid.
Then my spouse sewed little pull over soft covers to prevent dust
etc accumulation.  The rest of the laptops works great to this
day.   I cant force myself to discard them.  They are like old

I have the same broken hinge problem with my old WinBook XL3.
I've had it for years and it has been a very good computer, but
it is now limited to desktop use with the top in the open

I'm looking for a replacement and have considered a new laptop
that I could use to replace both my old desktop and my broken
laptop computers.

What is the best choice in a replacement laptop that would
function well as a technical computer, not necessarily as a game

Any notebook with a Core Duo, Core 2 Duo, AMD processor should work for
you.  You task is to decide what you need in terms of HD, display,
graphics adapter, etc, and those are just about additional $$.
