    They are known as a budget brand. They have a lot of bang for the buck on paper, but they seem to have a lot of hardware failures, combined with bad support. I guess that's why.

    I've got a Toshiba NB305 at work pretty damn good. Used to have an old eee 901 that I got 2nd hand before it, huge difference. The Toshiba has fantastic battery life and is a really good build quality. I'm not sure what their latest ones are like but if they are anything like that I'd highly recommend.

    Prefers laptop for self assembly, but such practice is no longer present.
    Currently I have Compaq JFL92 ;)

    Razer or Aorus are my personal choices. Their laptops are powerful for gaming but still keep a slim sleek design, especially Razer.

    I agree both laptop types i mentioned are costly. But the thread isn't asking for just the cheap laptops or budget laptops.

    I use Dell Inspiron N7110 more than 3 years without any troubles. I dont't have favorite laptop brand, I bought it because had the best components at that time.
