Laptop Recommendation?

    I don't know anything about hardware, that's why I asked the question when my Toshiba laptop crapped out on me. I just went with xandman's recommendation and bought directly from the Lenovo website.

    Sounds good. This onsite warranty by Lenovo makes them competitive (from a warranty standpoint) with Dell which also offers an onsite warranty. It's possible they both contract to the same 3rd-party service for onsite support in some regions.

    I have leaned toward Dell because sometimes I like to make DIY upgrades to my PC and there are a lot of YouTube videos and other online resources that show you how to take Dell's apart. Next time I buy a new PC, I will check if there are similar resources for Lenovos.

    I love my Asus, but my Acer is a POS.

    Toshiba was a good little workhorse, too, until I spilled a whiskey and 7 on her. Laptops do not recover from hangovers.

    that sounds pretty good, I am not an experienced whiskey drinker. What brand of whiskey do you use when you mix it with that 7? All I ever heard was CC7 which was Canadian Club.

    Woodford Reserve. Diet 7 is OK if you don't want too much sugar.

    ok, I'll give it another try, last time I drank a bottle of Woodford I woke up and promised the Lord I would never drink whiskey again but I wasn't mixing it with 7 up.

    I'm on my second Toshiba, the third one is sitting in a chest waiting to be thrown into the dumpster once my Lenovo ever arrives. It was a refurbished model I bought directly from Toshiba on their website just to have a spare, and it only lasted three months before it lost it's mind and the pointer no longer appears or can be pointed.

    So I'm back on my second Toshiba with the broken hinge

    Well, you don't need to drink the whole bottle. You might come unhinged, like your Toshiba.
