Which laptop brand do you think is the best? You should see this

by lastbaff 77 replies
I use a HP laptop and I think the brand is really good. Read on ... and let's know which brand you think is the best.

As you may already know, different laptops serve different purposes. Some are specialists while others are generalists. For example, some laptops are designed to have a high gaming ability. So, they don€™t lag even if you€™re a heavy gamer.

This laptop buying guide will help you in choosing the best laptop of your choice.

Here's my opinion on the best laptop brands€


1. Dell

Dell technologies are known to provide technology solutions in the digital world. The company designs ergonomic laptops with value and high-rated performance.

Dell business laptops feature best-in-class performance. And their Alienware gaming laptops come with high definition graphics and gaming performance.

Their devices are preinstalled with powerful processors for maximum performance. The only downside of Dell is their poor customer care performance.

As we all know, Dell manufactures superior devices comprising both expensive and cheap laptops. Let€™s take a look at some of the best Dell Laptops.


2. Apple

Mac laptops by Apple Inc. are known to be expensive and of very high quality. So, if you€™re on a tight budget, don€™t think of Mac laptops. They range from MacBook to MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. With this laptop brand, you never have to worry about quality.


3. ASUS

Asus is a leading technology company in Taiwan that manufactures products in several areas of Information Technology.

The company started out as a motherboard manufacturer and moved on to become manufacturers of PC components, smartphones, servers, notebooks, peripherals, and tablets.

Asus is the manufacturer of ASUS TAICHI, an Ultrabook with a double-sided multitouch display. It allows you to switch between a tablet and a notebook. It€™s worthwhile to see a few Asus laptops.


4. Lenovo

This company has been in existence for over 3 decades. It grew to become China€™s leading manufacturer of personal computers and acquired the Personal Computing Division of IBM.

They are now known for producing smartphones, laptops, tablets, and desktops. A quick review of a few Lenovo laptops will give you a feel of the brand.


5. HP (Hewlett-Packard)

This company has been in existence for a long time. They claim that they don€™t just create technology but they create technology with a purpose to make life better for everyone everywhere.

Well, overall, I€™d say their products have indeed made lives better. When it€™s HP, you€™re sure of quality and excellent customer support. Their devices offer a combo of sturdy hardware and excellent software.


6. Acer

Acer prides itself as the manufacturer of user-friendly, dependable, and reliable products and services that have enabled the world to get access to the opportunity for sustainable development.

The company€™s products include laptops, smartphones, projectors, tablets, cloud solutions, desktops, and monitors. Acer laptops have been found to have a high performance and durability.

    The best, l have spent months researching this, and ASUS, Toshiba are the best for their price range, Apple if you have the money.

    Although Apple lacks variety from a software perspective.

    I have seen 1tb Apples coming into the market, for $3k or more, so they are learning, but l would stay with one at half the price.

    I sent away for a Toshiba i7,1tb storage, 8gig of ram, (that l immediately pushed to 16).

    It took a month, (almost to arrive from China to AU) but certainly worth it.

    They advertised that it had Windows 7 Pro installed, with w10 on a disk, but l ended up with w10 Pro installed and w7 Pro buried on a partition.

    I took it back today, since l didn't want w10, and after using it for a few days, consider it the worst OS l have used so far.

    It is a mishmash of XP and w7, regarding transparencies or lack of them. I didn't buy a high end Laptop for a crappy looking OS.

    It does have a few positives, but plenty of negatives, so yeah, l will probably get them to burn it onto some disks, just in case.

    One of the big negatives is the audio playback, regardless of the player used, it distorts the sound.

    And updates.

    Nice to try, but never buy.

      I hear a lot of complaints about Windows 10 and that's why I've decided to stay away from it, too. You've just confirmed what all I heard.

      Bull, as usual. You can't name the task that you can't find a software application for the Mac that will allow you to perform it. If what you are trying to say is that there are not 83 word processing applications to choose from like for a PC - you are correct. A couple dozen high-quality choices should suffice.

      Additionally, most of the things Macs are primarily used for come with medium to high-end applications included and seamlessly integrated into the OS. A thing of beauty, I might add. lol

      This partially accounts for the slightly higher pricing, before you even consider the outstanding build quality, which absolutely no other manufacturer can come close to matching.

      Don't believe the BS. Get the facts before you purchase.

      Macs are the Rolls Royce of computers. If someone tries to convince you otherwise, you know that you are dealing with an idiot, with an agenda. Plain and simple.

      Nothing beats XP. Never figured out why Windows had to up their OS to 10 aside from the obviously different aesthetics and a few tweaks here and there :-)

    Yes, just type in "I F***ing Hate Windows 10" on Google and you will get plenty more.

    Rams updates down your throat, so if Microsoft wants to cripple Word, then they can.

    I don't know at this point whether l will get the original company to install w7, eventhough the advertising said that it came with it.

    They crapped on about it voiding warranty, and that w10 has support til 2025, while 7Pro has updates til 2020.

    No probs for me since l will be turning updates off as soon as l get it installed. Undates are 99% BS anyway, and just another way Microsoft can screw its, customer base.

    XP is good, my PC still has it, but if you are into pretty l would go with Windows 7.

    Windows 7 does use more processor power and more memory, but it has nice looking transparencies, etc.

    Certainly more attractive than XP, but a word of warning, Microsoft updates do mess with it, w7, so expect minor hassles if you are into updating.

    I have about a 5 year old HP Laptop purchased it at Bestbuy. It had Windows 8 on it when purchased. Currently it has Window's 10 and prefer that over Windows 8. It is nothing fancy just some thing to use. The best thing about it, is it never had any problems other then a worn out key board. If I needed another lap top tomorrow. I would consider purchasing another HP.

    An update, phew, F****g Microsoft!

    I found out today after getting a call from the tech, department that my Toshiba Laptop does NOT come with Windows 7 Pro, (they spent all yesterday and some of today downloading what they thought was w7 on a partition, but it turned out to be w10) grrrrr.

    Then they wiped off that S**t and installed their copy of Windows 7 Pro, And that has become a nightmare.

    They have to find the drivers for each whatever then burn it onto a disk then install it, so the easy to install isn't easy to install.

    I have a up to date laptop, which is a pain to install w7 onto.

    They had 8 to go when l showed up today before closing, so had to walk away empty handed again, but they will deliver it tomorrow by courier.

    So it will be 100% reliable when done, but a pain to fix, if the OS has kittens. Although as long as l do a mirror onto my external HDD, then it shouldn't be a problem.

    He offered me a Dell, as a replacement, so l will go and take a look, but probably stay with Toshiba. Dells can have reliability issues after a few years,and crap service.


    Yep, Microsoft, is the definition of evil, and wants to ram w10 down everyones throats. And as l have learned makes installing another OS, as a big a pain as possible.

    In 2025, if my laptop starts to stuff up, l may not have a choice, but for now, F**** em.

      There is nothing wrong with Windows 10, you just cant run your Adobe antique software on it. We have been through this before
