.... off of eBay. Which brand is the most high quality, least likely to break, normally pretty fast(I know this has mainly to do with the processor, but the PC has to be able to handle it)?


Dell
Hewlett Packard
IBM, Lenovo
Toshiba
Sony
Compaq
R.A.M. Computers
Acer
Other


So, almighty pit, WHAT ARE YOUR ANSWERS?!?!?


ANG-EDIT: okay, the reason i am buying from eBay is because i don't have very much money. I have about $100.

I wouldn't buy a used Laptop period. You really can't verify the state of it on EBay. Things like condition of the battery, harddrive, I/O ports etc could be less than ideal. Generally, when someone gets rid of a Laptop it's either obsolete (too slow) or has other issues.
Moving on.....

I've never had good experiences with dell, they usually end up ****ting the bed pretty quickly for me and their tech support is ****ing useless.

HP seems to make good computers as long as you format it when you get it to get rid of the bloatware they install.

I work at a Staples business depot and Toshiba laptops have the smallest return rate and warranty repair rate out of HP, Acer, Dell, Sony.

In the end though, it doesn't matter which laptop you choose as long as you buy an extended warranty ! kidding, we're not on commission.

first off, i would suggest not buying off of ebay. wait for christmas sales.

iv owned mostly dells in my life and iv never had a single hardware issue. i hear acers and sonys are good too. acers are probably the best for the money, but dell customer support is really good contrary to what u may hear. i received a desktop with a loose fan and i called asking what would be safe to put in there to wedge it and the guy sent out a tech the next day to put in a new one.

$100??????????

I suggest you save up because there's no high quality laptop at that price. If you think you'll be saving money by being cheap, you're wrong.

Either save up or buy something else.

By the way, MacBook Pro is the best laptop on the market. Save up for one and it's well worth it.

seriously...

macs USED TO BE good at graphic design, etc., but now u can get 90% of everything a mac can do on a pc for half the price. and if u hate windows, use linux, its FREE, and u can still use windows programs through wine.

macs still have great hardware, but they are no longer worth their price tag....unless u wana be trendy, then buy, and kill urself...

And that is about 90% of what people should be considering when they buy a laptop. The physical design, which is why MBP is superior.

I was supposed to get a laptop as a graduation present, but my mom forgot about it and ended up buying my brother an Alienware laptop because he asked for one.

My deepest condolences.

Sorry not a computer newb, which is why I don't like macs. Macs are boring to use, overpriced, proprietary, and overpriced.

if u have the money for one, great, but the TS is obviously looking for something cheap, not a MBP. im not knocking one for what they are, but they need to get over themselves and drop the prices a tad.

I have the Toshiba Satellite, and I got it personally loaded, so I paid just as much as the one at The Source and Best Buy, only I got way better memory. And a better video card.

Well you clearly are inexperienced with computers, which is exactly why you see Macs as its own and not as another computer.

First of all, I was talking about MacBook Pros which are laptops. You can't upgrade the GPU on any laptop. They're all proprietary.

Second of all, MBP come with a 9400 onboard and 9600 dedicated.

He can't get anything for $100. It is not saving money. It is throwing 100 bucks down the drain on a computer that will barely be able to boot up. I'm telling him to be provident and think economically. A MBP is the best investment he would make on a laptop.
