Re: Laptops, who is king of the hill?


I don't doubt there may be some truth to this claim and you may have read it
in an article somewhere, but I would be careful about assuming that it
applies to all models from both brands unless you have reliable sources to
indicate otherwise.

i would say dell or the toshiba Satellite once are the best to get right
how ever the problem with dell is that it comes with some kind of a e
rootkit installed
and u have to remove it.
same with lenovo

I have the
Toshiba Satellite L70-CBT2G22 Laptop.
It’s corners are a bit more angular as opposed to the rounded ones of my
last model but texture of plastic and keyboard are the same. the only
difference is the speakers are more towards the front and seem to be
affording much fuller sound.
I hope this helps.

I just bought one of the Toshiba Satellite series. It’s my second one
from them. The machine is reliable, powerful and its onboard sound isn’t
tinny as some laptops can be. I mention this because while there are
of output options to address this if one has to use it on the road for
instance listening to speech through bad speakers can wear on one. I’m
happy with it and it was easy to reconfigure the function keys so they’d
operate as normal. Many laptops today configure them to do special things
and one must go into bios to address this but not with this model I’m glad
to report.
I hope that helps.

Hi all. In the new year I'm contemplating getting a laptop. It has
a few years since I had one and things have moved on a fair bit since
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
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
completely new learning curve which I'm not inclined to embark on. I
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
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.
thanks. Walter.
