For overall quality, reliance, etc?!
I personally love Toshiba. My first laptop was an oldschool Toshiba Satellite. Been a fan since. Have had a few of them since. Currently I have a Dell laptop though, and its cool I guess, but overall it feels a bit cheap by comparison. have had some problems with it powering off, and also keyboard issues. Toshiba gets my vote.
another vote for Toshiba
I own a shop that does system repair. I vote against toshiba -- twice.
ASUS gets my vote.
i vote against Compaq.
no IBM, no care
I have a Dell laptop. Wouldn't buy another one.
I am using a Toshiba A70 Satellite for school. At first i was impressed with it. But my classmates and myself are having little problems with this labtop. I liked the finish at first, but after using it for almost a full semster; the finish is kinda of cheap.
I don't have a favorite, but I have a Dell Inspirion 9100 right now. I think after owning one I think Dell is a terrible company. They have great warranties but the problem in that you'll end up using it a lot. Things will break because they use cheap parts. Don't buy a Dell.
Compaq i have a compaq and i hate the damn thing!!!
i still do like my 3-yr old Tosh Satellite, but the CD-R/DVD drive crapped out on me just after the warranty expired. there's also no way to get direct access to the heatsink to give it a good cleaning. but other than that, yeah, uhm, ...
i have a sager and am pretty happy with it
I'm happy with my *waits for flames* Gateway. And I have been for two years now.
Dell all the way. I'm a Help Desk tech, and if you ask me, laptop's aren't worth a damn without warranty. Make sure you get a 3 year one or you'll pay through the nose when it breaks.
IBM's are great for their sturdy build and solid performance.
I have a toshiba p-15 and a p-25. Best laptops i have ever owned.
Not a Dell, while you can get a good warranty for a dell you could get just about any other brand and not have to use that warranty every couple months. My company uses Dell laptops, there is a good 50% failure rate in the first year for those POS computers.
IBM by faaaaar
PowerBook. I was very wary of switching at first, but it's been a fairly painless transition and the build quality is great. Son of a bitch was expensive though
ibm ibm ibm

Personally, I think IBM is meant for processors and nothing more. Their laptop- products aren't to hot.
I think Dell is great because of the service plan. If anything is broken they come right out to your house to fix it for free (well- if you have the 'on call' plan, at least).
My new gateway just came yesterday Unfourtunatly, I won't be able to open it until Christmas day or so; but I'll let you know how it goes later.
