    Hello Guys,

    I was just wondering.

    If someone would give you enough money to buy the laptop of your choice today May/09 (any brand regardless of model). I wonder what would be your brand of choice?

    This is in no way trying to find a way to endorse a particular brand. No such thing as a right or wrong answer. No explanations needed. For those who can make time to contribute an answer, much appreciated.

    You will know the result after I close the thread in about 48 hours. Just wanted to satisfy my curiosity.

    I would like to start: LENOVO

    So long as no endorsement is intended...

    Acer. I just happen to like them. Usually have intel chipsets, good compatibility.
    Plus... that's what I bought a few months ago and am quite happy with it.

    Exclamation

    Acer...I'm using Acer 5310 for past 1.6 years ..I didn't face any issues ..Before deciding my laptop I spent 1-2 months deciding about a cheap and reliable laptop which supports Linux.

    In last few months ,i heard acer stopped linux laptops ..that's bad
    anyway my vote goes for acer.

    Lenovo, because I'd much rather use the little joystick than the lousy touchpad on my HP. I had to buy a wireless mouse to make it useful. My old Thinkpad 1412 was nicer to use than this thing.
