Hi, I occasionally get this, but it's random and it's close after starting my Vista laptop, no matter whether it's on AC power or battery. However, I have been using the HP Recommended power plan, and I've just switched to the high performance power plan, so let's see if that solves it. This is with JAWS 9. Frustrating but at least it occurs once in a while and if it does it only lasts for a few seconds.

Hello all

I have a Thinkpad X61 and it does have a Windows key. Unfortunately, Jaws cuts off the beginning of every word when using battery under vista. I have the max battery profile activated. I haven't had time to try another profile or replacing the audio drivers. I previously had a thinkpad X40 running XP, and there were no problems with Jaws 7.

Unfortunately, just be prepared to return it if things don't work correctly with Jaws. That being said, I doubt most people have my experience using other laptops.

I also have a Dell D620 for work with XP Pro and Jaws 8. It seems to work fine, excluding the fact that the machine reboots with no warning once in a while. I've only experienced this phenomenon with Dell, and that's why I am not a big fan (happens on my Dell desktop as well).

Hi, Allan. What about the joystick device that IBM/Lenovo substitutes for a mouse on its laptops? I find it gets in the way when I try to type "b" and the other keys in that area.

I would say Lenovo, HP or Dell.

Only draw back with Lenovo (Not sure for all models of it) that they do not have Windows Logo Key.

Hi friends,

I wish to purchase a good and strong new laptop to start working Vista on it.

I'm going at least on 2GB ram, hard-disk 120GB or more, duo core 2 CPU.

I saw yesterday Acer, and I wish to ask whether someone here is using this ACER Laptop with Vista and Jaws 9?

I'm open listening to another suggestions too that may give me the same results.

I heard good things on HP laptops, LG, sonny, Lenovo.

Many thanks in advance
