    Personally I prefer ASUS laptops though their support has not been very good whenever I had the need to deal with them. Those MSI gaming laptops look pretty sweet and from what I read they are solid.

    I computer shop almost constantly, just to see what latest and greatest stuff is out there. For the last 3 years I've been a devout HP fan; I've owned two myself and convinced 6 other people to buy one.

    Lately though, I'm not sure. I'd look really heavily into Sager if I were in the laptop market right now.

    For cost vs reliability it'd be Dell. Had a cheap compaq for just surfing and it died within weeks of the warranty running out.

    I own a sony vaio laptop and considering getting notebook having had dell, toshiba and acer laptops that all broke too quick for my liking Sony seems to be a good brand and lasts, if I were to get a notebook I would save the extra and go for Sony.

    Toshiba. Really tough notebooks. Had a dell before, one of the fans broke and it's really hot for some reason. I also find disassembly of Toshiba notebooks fairly easy.

    depends entirely on the price, budget end only Samsung or Dell as the cheap hp/toshiba/acer ones are frankly awful in every way. Out side of the budget end which ever model brings up the least results when it and the word problem is googled ;)

    I used to love Dell 4-5 years back. They had some of the best configurations at a solid price. Then they updated their XPS line and the new design was something I didn't really enjoy. Then they came up with laptops that were not configurable (at least in my country). Though I have started to look into some Samsung models now, they look really good and affordable with good configuration. Need to replace my 6 year old laptop.

    I personally have a Dell Studio 1555 (the one before the interchangable lids, but you could have different colour lids with mine). Cracking little thing, but it was a dell and inevitably died within 3 days of mobo failure....and the next 8 did too.

    Just bought my brother an Asus notebook from PC world, reduced from £600 to £299 in stock clearance and fair play, its cracking.

    Had a Toshiba at work and its a good reliable laptop. Got a new Samsung a8 now and its a lovely piece of kit. First laptop I had was a VAIO and that was a gorgeous machine, but it cost more then my last car when I first brought it.
