I won't lie to you and I'll be honest before I answer. I work for Lenovo. IBM no longer makes PCs. That division was sold to the chinese company Lenovo two years ago. Lenovo is the equivalent to Dell in Asia.danielablau said:Jeremy - so which ones would you recommend? IBM? HP? Dell?
I know IBM's are tanks but they are double the price of a comparable Acer, and if you figure the technology will be obsolete in 3 - 4 years would buying the IBM be worth it?
Send me a link to the one you bought. It's hard to judge something based just on brand without knowing the specs on it.danielablau said:THanks for your input, its much appreciated, I have already ordered the Acer, I'll see how it is when it gets here and then see what the build quality is like and use iit for a week, if it sucks that badly I'm going to return it.
Again, thanks for the info.
When you do, call me first and I'll hook you up. That's what the friends plan is for.deevah said:i have a thinkpad, it's dog yrs old (win2k)

i want work to dish out for a X-series tablet but i think i'll be upgrading soon to a Z or T series for home use
Can't say I know much about either but I know that Fujitsu had a notebook with a decent review by an industry publication. Great battery performance for a single chip system. They didn't like the plasticy feel or the keyboard texture though.zoo said:Jeremy you've conveniently left out FUJITSU and ASUS notebooks from your list of "best brands."
do you really believe this is a common problem that happens shortly after warranty expires? or would you not think that it could be related to use and MTBF? there really isn't much variation on MTBF for trackpads from the sources out there.keeper said:my touchpad conked out just after warranty expired. i have heard this is a common problem with acers.
