    What laptop brand do you like?

    What have you found to be the most reliable.

    What do you see yourself doing on a new laptop?
    Reliability is relative to the work you are doing.

    Asus - 15.6" Laptop - Intel Core i3 - 6GB Memory - 500GB Hard Drive - Black Model: D550CARS31.
    I don't want a dead LT after 3 years. Asus is ranked 3rd out of 12 for reliability.
    I'll be using this for the internet and movies in bed.

    My choice would be a 13 inch MacBook Air. Apple lowered the price on the 2014 models by $100.

    What the heck -
    I have an IBM Thinkpad (i.e. Lenovo) T42 that I bought in 2005. After a replacement hard drive went bad recently, I found the original 40 GB HD - re-installed it and loaded UBUNTU version of Linux from a thumbdrive. I still use it as a backup for internet access, plus I use it to develop unix based skills that I need for work. I'm planning on getting up to speed on Ruby.
    If Lenovo still builds these guys like they used to - I would definitely go for that brand again!

    LOL
    My youngest brother had an old Sony VAIO (2010) that he doesn't use any more.so I asked if he could send it to me and I would fix it up as a dual booted for Linux work. So a few days later I get a brand new Lennovo G50 Touch thru FedEx!
    He decided to pay me back for past favors. Holy crap!
    Now I have to learn Win 8.1 - mixed blessing.☺

    I prefer business class laptops. Most reliable laptops for me are Panasonic Toughbooks. Full Rugged models best.
