Thread: Which laptop to buy?

  1. #1

    Default Which laptop to buy?

    The IT show just started today. Laptop prices seem reasonable though not fantastic I must say.

    Currently, aiming for Asus largely because of its 2 years warranty and the convenience of its service center in town. Anyone has any experience with Asus laptop?

    Any other laptop to recommend? I am not too keen on Toshiba because of my brother's bad experience with his Toshiba laptop.

    Get a Mac and you'll never turn back dude...

    Jokes aside, I've been using a Mac for the past 2 years and have nothing but praises for it (mostly anyway...)

    Well, thats what most girls think what!
    I bought my Fujitsu laptop 1 or 2 mths back. I wanted something light and flat, so that it will be easier for me to travel around with. I needed something fast and also lotsa space for me to store all my photos, so I upgraded the specs too. Now what I want is a portable hard disk, then I can have more storage space! ^_^ Anyway, I was thinking of Asus then. But decided to go with Fujitsu in the end.
    Have you read IT???

    Buy from Apple and if theres anything wrong with it, u can bring it down to the Apple store at Wheelock Place. Town area! I'm not promoting hor, cos me not working there this time. But seriously Apple is good, if you are gonna use it for photo/video editing. Too bad I'm used to Windows, if not I will get a Mac, and not a Fujitsu.

    Forget about the Powerbook seriously. I've had very bad experiences in my just over a year of owning the 15 inch Powerbook. Mainboard had to be replaced on 2 occasions, about 6 mths apart, and LCD had to be replaced once. I was VERY distressed during the down time. Lucky I bought .edu package so I had 3 years Applecare. Also I had lots of software issues. OS wise it's great, no viruses/spyware, but add the hardware failures and it just did not cut it for me.

    So when my Powerbook got stolen last mth, I decided to jump back to Windows based machine, and deliberated between Fujitsu and Lenovo-IBM. Ended up with Fujitsu S7021 because there was a special offer on it (3 years warranty), plus it is one of the few laptops still genuinely Made in Japan. QC , HOPEFULLY.

    This being said, I think the Acer laptops are great value, but I just don't like the bent keyboard.

    Fujitsu tablets not on display? I love my T4020, might not be bleeding edge but the design and usability is there. Upgraded from the T4010 within 6 mths as the price of the T4020 was cheaper than the orig price I paid for the T4010.

    I'll say go for a tablet rather than a laptop. If you prefer something of a smaller form factor, wait for microsoft's origami devices. google it, there's lots of slick flash animations showcasing them
