Dell has customer service problems too. I usually get Asus and like them a lot, but this computer is an Acer and I love it too.

Yeah, I've had problems with Dell, too. I'm not computer literate enough to explain, but the next computer I get is not going to be one of theirs.

I'll second what Sylphiel said. I have a Dell and I pretty much have to plug it in wherever I go because the battery is sooo terrible now. That and I actually had to buy a new charger for it eventually because my old one crapped out on me. And then there's also my fan but that's probably just my bad luck. While I do like my Dell laptop more than my HP one (that was one terrible but apparently their laptops were pretty bad the year I got mine) it's still not that great. Definitely not getting a Dell whenever I get a new laptop.

On the other hand, my brother's Toshiba has been going pretty strong. The only issue he had was also a battery but a simple replace of the battery and everything was all right again. He's had no other issues aside from that. Lenovos, from my experience, are also fairly well as long as you know how to take care of laptops. They're pretty durable and can last quite a few years if taken care of properly. But I suppose that goes for most anything. Anyways, for the most part aside from accidents like spilling orange juice on the keyboard and such our Lenovo's really only had internal problems after several years of use and even then it was due to viruses and not the laptop itself as much as I remember.

How are the Asus RoG laptops overall?
I've heard a lot of good things about them, but never personally owned one.

oh no don't get me started on phone chargers. I don't break them or anything but my whole family (myself included) lose them all the time so we're always 'WHERE'S A CHARGER??' and it's ridiculous.

Yeah, I think I've been through 2 3DS chargers and I've only owned the system a little under a year....

I'm lucky that the rest of my stuff basically all charges on the same charger, so I just keep it at home and NEVER lose it.

Unless your my Zune...my Zune just loves to be different.

Oh god chargers.. I got a CRAP ton of chargers at home. Usually the chargers that comes with the device last longer than the device itself. I got like 5 different chargers for different type of phones, 2 PSP chargers, 2 universal laptop charger and 2 chargers for a DS and a 3DS.

I think I went through 3-4 chargers on my last laptop. I haven't had to get one for this one yet, but I only got it for like Christmas so that could be why!

I actually end up finding every charger I lose. They're even in good condition. Something I'm kinda proud of. =D

Batteries? Those can become pricey and hard to manage after a while. My sisters have a habit of playing with the batteries in the TV remotes. It got so bad at one point that my mother duct taped the batteries in.

Well, I obviously have a few chargers, but they're all in the same drawer and after using them, they all got back to it, so they won't probably get lost that easily. When I'm going to buy something that requires a charger, I make sure it is a USB charger because I have this plug-in which allows you to connect them.
About batteries, hmmm, I got those one which are rechargable. I mainly use them for Wii Remote control lol

I do like how all ipods/iphones have the same charger except the 5 though, and everything from the 5 on will have the same charger. I get to help people out with dead phones cause I carry my ipod charger everywhere with me. :3

I've taken to carrying around a charger for my phone now since it loses half its battery life in less than 12 hours. -_- I think it's because my room and work are both in dead zones.

I assume so, for at least a few years until they decide that 4ses are obsolete and the iPhone 8 is the only supported device.

Oh god, the iPhone 8. Wonder what that's gonna look like. At this rate, we'll find out soon enough though. :c

Also, did anyone hear about that basketball incident? I knew there was a reason I didn't play...

Never cared much for the iPhone or Apple products for that matter. And no, Bloodex, I didn't hear about no basketball incident.

Spoiler:


I need to watch more of this show.


I'm gonna make it a new personal rule of mine to link episodes of this show to anybody whose views I disagree with...just out of spite.
