Soooooo... Doronjo needs a laptop.

Posted August 6th, 2011 at 6:37 AM by Miss Doronjo

And after 2-3 months of saving, I can finally afford one. *PHEW*.

Anyhow, do any of you know what brand should I get?
See, I'm not ~that~ knowledgeable when it comes to...modern computers; (I know, I know, BUT I HAVE REASONS)

So, if you have any suggestions for laptop brands I should get, please, let me know, and thank you. :)

    My dad says ASUS and Acer are good.

    I have a Samsung and it's pretty nice, though it was spendy. :>

    Any kind of Mac would be good :3 I use a MacBook and I love it <3 It is true you can't play many games on it, but it's amazing for graphics and stuff, and it's a lot safer to use when browsing the web than Windows since there aren't many viruses for it.

    Also agreeing with Nick below and saying not to go with Dell. My mom's Dell laptop's screen went haywire, my stepdad's Dell laptop's screen died, my mom's Dell desktop hard drive causes stuff to go ridiculously slow... Just do not go with Dell.

    Go for a Sony or a Toshiba. Dells are also good as well, but I would take that as a third choice. Sonys are high-priced but it's worth it. I have a Toshiba laptop that I bought two years ago, and it still works great. Sooo, go for a Toshiba!

    you should take me laptop shopping. xD

    I have an HP and have had no problems with it other than it occasionally getting hot >: If anything, I'd advise against Dell =/ While usually the cheaper option, they're usually just sorta thrown together.

    In all honesty, though, it depends entirely on your price range and what your own personal uses/preferences are... What I CAN tell you to do is go to have a tech friend help you build it yourself and decide what goes into it. Mine's default stuff was faaaar crappier than what it has now (lower RAM, i3 instead of i5, smaller hard drive, worse graphics card, etc.) but using the power of the internet and a techy friend, I found not only online coupons to reduce price, but also was able to pimp out the computer pretty well and still keep it in my budget range. It takes longer to actually GET the computer in your hands, buuut... worth it in my opinion. :x

    @Stand Alone: I had an HP laptop a few years ago and I had to send it in for repairs twice (though I only did it once as I bought the computer in the States and they wouldn't repair it for me unless I mailed it from the states and they mailed it back to the states). Keys fell off with surprising frequency, it overheated lots, and had issues with most of its parts (memory, motherboard [twice], screen, USB ports, to name a few) and their customer service was honestly a joke. I've never bought a single HP product since my experience with that laptop and I doubt I ever will again. ~_~

    HP printers are really good, though!

    They're okay. :( I don't even know where mine is but we have one at home that still works fair enough. Except it's the loudest thing in the world and runs out of ink so quickly, even if we haven't printed anything. >:(

    I haven't had bad experiences with HP, and they're pretty much all I deal with for computing devices and printers at work. I recommend them simply because getting a Lenovo or a Sony instead means that for warranty work you have to hunt down a shop that's certified to repair their stuff (it's even worse with Sony because it has to specifically be a Sony Style store) in order to not void your warranty.

    Just stay away from budget laptops. They're practically all horrid. Any major brand can be reliable if you're gentle with them and don't get a budget one.
