Actually, I would go as far as saying that for $600 to $800 you can purchase
a reasonably powerful machine if you shop around.

Well, I agree computer in general is down in prices. Can you spend a lot
of money on one yes. But you can buy a very good laptop and desktop for
around 1000 bucks or less. I would say you can get a fairly good windows
machine to do most of what most people would want to do with one for around
600 to the 800 buck mark.

I don't have any specific recommendations at the moment, but I have to
disagree about the prices. If anything, laptop prices are lower than ever.

Hi all. In the new year I'm contemplating getting a laptop. It has
been a few years since I had one and things have moved on a fair bit since
then. However I would like to know which manufacturer is considered to have
the best quality products. A few years ago I saw a lot of posts on lists
like this moaning and complaining about HP but have they improved? are they
considered a good bet for quality and reliability now? There is a lot of
differing brands on offer but I'd like to consider your opinions on the
various brands and their pros and cons before seeking out a suitable model.
I've just looked at one web site and noticed that laptops are still rather
expensive. I actually want a laptop rather than a tablet because the hard
drives are larger and there is an integral keyboard and more than one USB.
I've discounted apple as Apple are too controlling, restrictive and it is a
completely new learning curve which I'm not inclined to embark on. I would
much prefer win7 as the OS, definitely not Win8. The site I looked at has
no Win10 which surprises me so I'll need to go with Win7, stick with what I
know I guess.

If you have an opinion on the various brands then will you please let me
know your thoughts and why you have come to the conclusions you have. With
thanks. Walter.
