I have to disagree on the HP. We had 3 HP laptops in the house...and they all took a crap within 3 years. Same problem on all three.

I am now using a Sony Vaio and its been nothing but great!

I like Toshiba laptops. I have had Dells, vaio's, and Toshibas. IMO, for the price, Toshiba offers the best product. I always try to get the "latest" chip. I don't know if they are above i7, yet. But, software only gets "bigger" it is worth it.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I may get the new one that is a laptop and then the screen pops off to make a tablet. I think it is around 700.00 Hp or Toshiba can't remember.

Well, to bad it had to be a portable printer. I got a canon printer on amazon's gold box deal yesterday. I don't currently need one, but when I do....

So far the HP laptop is working well for what I need it for.
I did get one that got good reviews.

I did give up on the portable printer for now. I thought I was going to be doing more traveling this summer and I didn't.

I wish I had seen this thread when it was started, but I was not on the board then so I will chime in now.

Personally I won't touch an HP laptop with a 10 foot pole, certanly won't spend money on them, in the last 8 years HP has been in a steady downhill slide away from Quality, they are having serious motherboard issues, and are prone to just giving up the ghost.

For myself I prefer ASUS, they make a solid computer, and they build most of the laptops for Dell. Toshiba is also a pretty good brand.

I would also stay away from sony because sony has been known to use sub standard components in their gear to bring the price down, and I have seen a lot of issues with their product over the years.

My personal machine that I use day in and day out is an ASUS B53S, I am running windows 8, it works great for what I have to do with it.
