Jessica59 : Try to get a Cash back credit card. It provides cardholders with cash rebates or rewards to cardholders for making purchases with their credit card. A cardholder has the ability to accumulate significant rebates over time based on the dollar amount of purchases made with the top card offers.

A list of best cash back credit cards available below.

sharonben : I was 43 before I even tried to establish credit after I bought 5 acres from owner. and needed credit for electric as owner.

What you do is buy CD (certificates of deposits) I started at 50 dollar one every two months, In 2 years one would mature monthly so I could if I had to epically at first withdraw all of one for tires later for a car (no interest paid out until like I said I needed credit and borrowed against my CD's.

On single waitress salary it helps to not be in debt. And when I finally met my husband a few years later well lets just say separate accounts don't o mingle money

plotolacy : ive been thinking of laptop that i should use for school, i just want a fast and smooth OS to run on the laptop, ill not using it for gaming stuff, i just wanna use it for incredible fast and good graphic project and it not hard to use, just simple but wonderful works, what is your suggestion? <Linux/Windows/Mac>
ive heard of the Dual OS , does it can effect so bad? or disturb the other OS ? and the negative effects having dual OS ? like example windows and linux, does the data will having much bad effect or they will goes own ways, because if i think , the works will more harder or it will damage each other? and how about the program? example many windows application cannot be running on Mac/ Linux, like bootcamp on mac, mac can running windows OS, but i just wonder, where the data saved? example, the apps that only run by windows,and the apps saved on mac, it still can be loaded ? and how about the storage management on the laptops? <mac and windows / windows and linux> does it different storage? and does it could damage each other?

IrredsPruri : It really depends on the applications you will be running. if you need to use a Microsoft program then you are bound to that operating system. You can run some Microsoft programs under Linux but usually in a virtual machine that emulates windows. If you find a good open source program that will run under linux then i would suggest Ubuntu .If you are not sure then you can down load Ubuntu and make a bootable disc and try it with out installing it . It will run a lot slower this way so don't make your judgement on the boot time if you try it from a cd first just have a play around and try to find programs you need . nearly all programs for ubuntu are free. if you have installed ubuntu you will find it loads fast and is fast to use and there is a lot of great support. I hope this helps.

thurgyFug : A fast and smooth OS, that's either Linux or Mac. Let's take a look:

-Mac has the advantage of being fast and quite stable. MacBooks are often regarded as MultiMedia-laptops, so they will do the trick nicely. They are fast because they come with Flash-memory harddrives. These are incredibly fast compared to the regular harddrives found in laptops, causing MacBooks to load applications and files fast.

The major downside to Macbooks is that, like every Apple product, they leave you with little freedom. Apple products are mostly only compatible with other Apple hardware, so you can't simply connect any hard drive to it.

Windows has a VAST amount of programs at it's disposal. By this I mean that you can download and run almost any free or paid program on Windows, as it's the king of the market. On Mac, this is not the case, though you can still install a Windows Application Executor, like WINE, to run WIndows Apps.

Pro:
- Fast and stable
- Regarded as MultiMedia laptops due to good graphical performances
- Light and portable. Strong casing.
- Very safe. Mac has nearly no viruses or malware.

Con:
- Expensive
- Little freedom, Apple 'decides what you can and cannot do'
- Not as many programs as Windows or Linux
- Every Apple-addition or hardware costs money and is expensive.


Next up is Linux. Linux is relatively unknown but is gaining popularity fast. It's lightweight, which means that it will always run fast, even on an old system. This is what Linux was designed for. Linux is very stable, and will almost never crash, compared to Windows and even Mac. Linux has a VAST array of open-source applications to it's disposal, including some advanced graphical programs like Blender, Cinelerra, InkScape, Scribus, FFMPEG, etc. Some of these are hitting the industry standards, and are Linux-only. You can install them easily from a Software Center, which is similar to Android's App Store (Android is a Linux Distrobution too!). Linux has open-source alternatives to just about any kind of program you need. LibreOffice replaces the expensive MS Office, VLC replaces Windows Movie Maker, etc...
The most popular Distros are Linux Mint and Ubuntu. These are general, all-round distro's. There are many others, but they are oftenly tailored to suit a specific public (writers, designers, programmers, etc...)

Pro:

- Linux is fast and stable, even on 15-year old hardware.
- Linux is free (as in free speech and free beer). 99% of all Linux distro's are free to download and install.
- Linux has a vast community of people ready to help you. Each distro has it's own forum where you can ask questions for support.
- Installing software is easy, you only need to access the Software Repository (= Software Center) from where you can install it in a click. No complicated installation procedures required.
- Linux does not need to reboot as often as Windows or Mac. You can let Linux run on an activated computer forever, and it won't slow down. Only some updates require a reboot.
- Linux has nearly no viruses or malware, and the ones that exist are very easy to remove.

Con:
- Linux cannot run every Windows application. Many paid software like PhotoShop, Sony Vegas etc... won't run well on Linux. Despite this, WINE is also available for Linux to run Windows applications.
- Linux is quite worthless for gaming, but since you mentioned that you don't do that a lot, there's no problem with that.



Why not try for yourself? Linux is easy to dualboot. Using YUMI

www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/?

or PenDrive Linux

www.pendrivelinux.com

you can boot it from a USB drive without installing it on your system. You can do this to see which Distro you like, and to see if Linux is your thing. The bootable USB drive will include an application to install Linux on your system. You can even install Linux next to Windows, so you have both! in this case, a menu will pop up when booting your computer, asking you which OS you want to boot into.

Reundediund : Instead of dual OS,i recommend you to upgrade the RAM to 8GB,Upgrade to an SSD,and use virtualbox from Windows 7 64 bit.
In that way you can have more than 2 OSes,but windows 7 is the master 'Host' OS.
You can load Solaris,ubuntu,fedora,crunchbang etc,what ever you like.You can even run 2 Virtual Machine simultaneously.For example you can allocate 3GB ram to each VM,and run both at the same tim,and the system still have 2GB of RAM to Use.
