I use a Toshiba and I've been very pleased with it.  My only problem is that I've had it for awhile and have a bunch of programs and files on it so it gets kind of noisy from time to time, depending on what I'm doing.

       Any brand name is OK with me...as long as it downloads fast!

I've been using a Hewlett-Packard laptop of some kind for the last 5 or 6 years.  I like it so much that I no longer have a desktop computer.  I find the HP dv7 is pretty good for video and music.  I don't know how it does with games, as I don't play them.  For my next laptop, I would first consider another HP.  For the specifications I want, HP does a great job of meeting them.  I also do some research on the Internet before making my purchase, though.  Cnet.com is a good place to start, they have reviews for all kinds of computer things.

I have an e-machine and am really happy with it. Have not had too many issues with it and I have had it for over 3 years now.

Toshiba. I bought mine on sale for school about two years ago and I have never had a problem. It was a good price and a very fast laptop.

I had an HP desktop that lasted 6 years and I have a Gateway laptop that is almost 4 years old now and it still works great.

I am a huge fan of HP.  I have owned several HP laptops and I am a very happy customer.  :thumbsup:  Each one has performed at a level that exceeded my expectations.  I have had no problems with them.  As a precaution, I use a fan/cooler to help keep them cool and prevent overheating since I am on it for hours.   My experience with Dell has been nothing but problems.  Years ago I owned a Gateway desktop and overall it was an ok computer.  I  know people that Macs and they absolutely love them but I don't have any experience with them.

I work on computers for a living.  Trust me - stay away from Dell.    The more they outsource, the worse they get.  Even if you're lucky enough to get a working pc, the support is terrible. Also stay away from E-Machines.  I've scrapped five of them in the last three months. (not mine - customer's) If you're getting a laptop - get an HP, it's the only way to go.  If you're getting a desktop - go see someone who works on them and have them BUILD YOU ONE FROM SCRATCH!!!!!  It's cheaper -AND you get exactly what you want.  AND they last longer.  Any place that repairs computers will be able to do this for you, most likely.  If you know someone - all the better.  If you want a recommendation on where to go, email me @ Nempie2013@gmail.com with your location and I'll be happy to do the research for you.

I am sorry you are having a bad experience.  My computer is a Dell Inspirion 6400.  I have been very satisfied with Dell.

I've had my Dell laptop for about seven years, and I am fine with it.

This is my 2nd Dell Laptop and I am just as unhappy with this one as my first one, I wasn't going to buy another one, but decided to give Dell a second chance.....had to have 3 motherboards put in my first one along with other problems, now this second one I am using has had to have 1 motherboard, 2 replacements of hard drive, along with multiple issues with wireless accessories, system operations restoring, etc....Please tell me your experiences with your computer and if you like or dislike Please!!  Thanks

I had a dell laptop that I was really unhappy with. My husband has a dell and it has lasted for years. Right now I am using an ASUS. I cannot say I am in love with it, but it is functional. I guess I am just hard on laptops.

NOT MAC. don't get a mac. please save yourself.

I like how easy the UI is and it was a lot better at the beginning, but has gotten horribly slow and way worse than my friend's PCs over the years. Harder to maintain (well maybe if I had more memory...but most people I know who have MACs lose them in 3 yrs for various tech.reasons)

I recommend Lenovos
