Laptop and external hard drive

I have an external hard drive with .avi's on it. I don't know the format. I want to buy an inexpensive laptop to watch them. Not sure what kind of laptop I need to buy. Obviously don't want one that won't read the drive. Any thoughts??

Re: Laptop and external hard drive

As long as the hard drive is USB, it will work with any computer with a USB port.


Windows Media Player is accessible in Windows 10 very easy under the accessories menu and VLC is easily installable to accomplish your viewing task too.


There are other apps out there that can play those files and perhaps organize them.


Any computer out there today is very capable of playing these files so take your pick
