I really like the build quality and the keyboard of the Lenovo I got for my daughter. I did NOT like the 15" Toshiba it was competing against. We have HP's at the office and people seem to like them. But my experience with Lenovo has been very favorable.

Love,
Tom

Another +1 for Lenovo. That's my work laptop, so it's set up for ...well, work. Very reliable, well built, good ergonomics.

Don't write off Dell, especially stuff from their Outlet. I love my XPS with Windows 7. Vista was the Edsel or New Coke of OS.

Love, you know who...

Now, that's waaaay more useful than the stuff Mark posts.

I wonder how much difference there really is between brands these days. Computers seem to be commodity products now.

Would it make sense to spend extra on a business class laptop for greater durability?

Edit: sorry Bob, no love from me. My ex got it in the divorce.

Ah, in a 17, business class laptops are going to cost a lot more (I don't even know if Lenovo MAKES a 17" laptop), in which case, I'd probably go with the Tosh.

I have a 17" HP laptop, 8 GB RAM, 650 GB HD. Hate it.

I have a 10.1" Toshiba net-book with the 2GB RAM upgrade, 250 GB Hard drive, and I love it. loaded it with Microsoft Office Pro, Corel XP5, brownish copper soft rubbery grippy surface. Seems bullet proof, never crashed, Windows 7 Starter barebone OS.

Checked, I don't think it's available any more.
