As the Topic Says "What is your preferred Notebook Brand?"
I like Asus
Like my Dells myself, always easy to find bits for etc...missus seems to always end up with Fujitsu Siemens machines somehow...
i am quite a big lover of HP myself, i work with computers and laptops all day and i find HP to be one of the best. Dell are also good too.
wow... the last time I used one of those was a while ago. Anyway... If I were to pick a manufacteur I would probably have to go with Dell too. They make a decent enough laptop for not a bad price. However if I wanted to legally own an OSX license, I guess MAC wouldn't be too far away (expensive).
Same as me here, ASUS is my first choice when it comes to notebooks
I'm not usually attached to brands. Notebook brands really don't quite matter to me: 3 laptops, 3 brands: in oldness order: Acer, Toshiba, Asus.
I used to like HP, they make good looking products that when operational preform well, but their customer service is awful. I had an entertainment notebook, I think the dv9500, from them with the G86 graphics card. And I'm sure some of you are familiar with the embedded flaw that causes every G86 to eventually fail. Well a few days after my 2 year warranty was up mine fails, what luck. Call HP after reading several articles of Nvidia fessing up, taking blame, and admitting the flaw. Mac, Dell, and many other companies extended the factory warranty of such products with this GPU. Apparently HP did not. So I call them and they claim there was no problem with the chip, blaming me for it, saying there wasn't a single note, article, or other document with information on the problem. Of course you type G86 chip problems in google at the time there were many articles, so I knew this was a load of ****! There was also a topic in the HP support forums with 80+ pages of people stating the same problem. And HP plead ignorance to dodge the problem. Even wrote the CEO, and got another email telling me that there was no such problem. So now I had a $1400 paper weight. Oops. End rant!
Regardless I will never by another HP product, and I have tinkered with ASUS notebooks, and netbooks, and I quite like them! Dells seem great as well!
But Dell Laptops are very Ugly 4 me
May be just 4 me
Hewlett & Packard.HP in short.
I too like my dells i currently have a dell E6700 with a nice Blue case which i think was a special edition that came in red or blue but you can only get them in a like a black carbon now
Reminds me of another forum where a guy advised another about what laptop to buy. He said substantially "HP is a bad brand, you shouldn't buy it. However my laptop is HP and it works great". No comment, eh...
I also don't think, HP is a bad brand.
I don't think either, I was just quoting. I don't really have an opinion on HP computers, all I know in that area is (I think) they bought Compaq, which wasn't really a great brand... Otherwise in my family we have 3 HP calculators (inc 2 HP 49G) and they work great
Anybody has got any opinions about Vaios ?
Nope, except that Sony isn't really a PC brand to begin with...
What do you mean by that ? Sony makes great PC products like DVD-RWs/monitors/Laptops etc.
Well, I know more Sony for their TVs, cameras, Hi-fi, etc. Didn't think about the PlayStation, though, but still that's not quite like a whole PC. I don't know if they're good at PCs or not, but still they aren't a PC brand in my head.
My first laptop was an acer but the motherboard went up in a poof of smoke, so I converted to Toshiba and haven't looked back.
The last time I used one of those was a while ago.It was an MSI Notebook but Anyways If I have to pick one , I would probably have to go with Asus too.
I don't have a prefered brand really, as with most things I will simply buy from whoever has the best product for me a the time. Some companies have better support, or better accessories, etc, but at the end of the day they are mostly the same and the vast majority are all made by the same few companies anyway.
Good example of my theory is... HP have truly shockingly bad support, but my Mini 311c is by far the best ION laptop there is, so I went for it and I'm happy
Saying that, the build and design quality of Toshiba, HP and Dell laptops have always impressed me.
