Sip and Azat will probably tell you to go with Dell, since those crappots are just the best thing around. rolleyes.gif I hate Dell, I would go with IBM, but what the heck do I know? tongue.gif By the way has anyone seen how a broken Dell laptop looks like? Mercury spreads out in various colors, pretty cool actually I guess what I am trying to say is that they are very fragile. Go ahead disagree with me.

If I were to buy one for me right now, most likey I'd go with the Sony TR3. I know a few people here at UW that have it and that thing is wicked coool!!!!



I've also had my eye on the HP Pavilion ZD7140US on the radioshack website ... one day I happened to see it online and it really caught my eye ... I haven't researched it much though.

Or just go with dell biggrin.gif

I'll say it again - i hesitate to buy anything Sony. :bleah: <-- there should be a smilie for this

Dell workstations (desktops) I've had have been flawless. The laptops I've worked with however, are another story. I think I'd probably go for a Toshiba these days, but I haven't been shopping around much. Or how about a nice Apple Powerbook 17in! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Only id Dell would marry me.

If you want a laptop that is reliable with solid parts and a great price you can never go wrong with Dell.

I know Azat jan, I/m just tired of dell, simply becouse when i need help i spend an hour on the phone pushing buttons finaly a indian guy come online name charlie, and that even is hard to understand.
I was leaning more to Toshiba and elianwere, yah I think I'll get an elianwere and get over with. now I have troble just loading on a 20mg file on this old dell workstation, and time is everything in my business, fast and good graphics, elianwere i think is the best system out there, I/m just going to ahead and get it, 3k and its worth it, I think, any other sudgestions?

Azat wile back you posted a link to some fancy systems, had to do with wide screen monitors or something, they had some great laptops, I cant find the link, do you remember what was it?

You know I agree with you but on their regular stuff. Their extreme and ultra poltable sutff is usually hella cool. I bought a R505G a few years ago (the really small one that's still very small by today's standards but has a P200) that's lasted amazingly well. This TR3 is not a work horse by any means but in terms of style, portability, and functionality it's great. Seems to last well too (those that I know have had them for more than a year). The really cool/small ones are shipped to japan though ... for some reason they send them to Japan before trying the US market.

Hi Edward,
I know, it can get frustrating looking for a good laptop. My personal oppinion is that Dell is great with desktops, but I think they missed the mark when designing the laptops. Also, their customer service (something that they were known for) has become terrible.
I recommend going with Toshiba laptops. I purchased a Toshiba laptop about a month ago, and I think that it's the best choice in laptops out there. I researched a lot before buying it, and I also relied on few of my friends who have Toshiba laptops for last 5 years.
Here's the link to the Toshiba site.
