My brother has a Sony Vaio (17") I don't know the series...too lazy to check.

I love the laptop, it's sleek & the keyboard/touchpad = AWESOME! It's powerful and didn't screw up in over two years. 17" is too big, so I am getting a 14" version of it (White =P)

Sony Vaio
It's not too powerful, but not too weak. I'm not really satisfied with it when I'm in my room with it, but when I'm at the library or somewhere else it's quite good since I can still run most of my apps without my battery dying so fast that I can't do anything.

Overall though my laptop is too weak for my needs. I only bought it cause it was cheap.

I own a Lenovo Thinkpad X200 and an HP Mini 1100.

HP
(+) Crappy hardware quality. Even the accessories break easily.
(-) To make up for the crappy products, they have excellent customer service support. My Mini broke down six months after I purchased it, and HP sent a messenger to pick up and deliver my machine to get it fixed. They also call me regularly to give updates.
VERDICT: Hell no. Customer service only saves the day while you're under warranty. After 1 year, all is lost.

Lenovo - Thinkpad
I will have to qualify this. I only use laptops from the Thinkpad line, which is the business high-end spectrum. Thinkpads are a world apart from the commercial line. Quality, features, and R&D are drastically different. With that said, I'll only comment on Thinkpads.
(+) Sturdy and reliable. Virtually indestructible. I've been using Thinkpads for over 5 years (even before Lenovo bought it from IBM). I've dropped Thinkpads off a moving motorbike and spilled coffee, gatorade, ketchup, etc. over it, and they don't break. WTF hax. Their ultraportables are very light. I think it has to do with that aircraft material they use for construction. Most comfortable keyboards in the world, seriously. Great customer support, too.
(-) Expensive, LOL. I guess you gotta shell out for quality. Also, they're not the most fashionable machines. Thinkpads have always been in plain black matte, but that works for me.
VERDICT: I'm on my 3rd Thinkpad. I'm still in love with the damn things.

My laptop is a good old Acer Ferrari 4000, it's still good considering it's 5 years old. I used to not like it a year ago, until I formated it for the first time in 4 years lol, after that it works like a charm.

I have a Sony Vaio E-Series, and I love it.

Even if it doesn't have the processor I dreamed of, it's still pretty good. Looks nice too.

I have an Acer.
It's more than good enough for gaming, so I'm satisfied.

Got Sony Vaio from 5 years ago (don't know the name lol)

Dropped it 1415124 times and still works pretty well (except 1 hours battery orz), so I'm happy.

Still have a Sony Vaio from August of 07, been showing its age for quite a while now, ie low battery life, slowdowns, etc.

I'd prolly have to agree >_>

I'm on my 2nd HP laptop now. As my first one aged, the DVD drive and the hinges on its screen kinda went. It was my first laptop and I sorta chalked that up to wear and maybe me not being careful enough with it.

The hardware on my second (a nice 17" desktop replacement) hasn't been holding up so great (It's 2 1/2 years old now). The touch-buttons have gotten flaky, and the color on the display falters a bit if the screen's not tilted to a 'sweet spot'. The DVD drive chooses not to work sometimes... >_> But I had spilled a bit of water on that.

In addition, my parents had a HP laptop... bought a couple months after I got this... and there was some hardware problems (supposedly somewhat inherent to the design) that basically caused the motherboard to melt... right after their warranty was up.

So I'm thinking I might try another brand come my next comp <_<

same as me the only thing that sucks about it to me personally is the weak processor and the annoying 2hour 30 minute charge while im not gaming (1 hour and 20 minutes while gaming) just gets annoying when your running an IN about to kill a boss then *shutdown* q.q

it's good for gaming and general net browsing considering it switches between heavy duty/normal graphic cards to save battery

I use an HP (Forget which one it is... but it's the one that gets hot enough to cook food on), and I'm thinking of replacing it since after 2-3 hours of use the laptop is literally hot enough to boil water on it .-.

Asus K72J 17"

I'm in love with it. The cooling is amazing, the adjustable fan speed has never let me down. It can run medium-high settings on WoW, which for a laptop is stellar. Dedicated Radeon graphics, i5 processor, great little system. My boyfriend has a VAIO with similar specs (i5, Nvidia Intel HD graphics) and it's doing worse than the Asus so far (and his left click broke, but I think that's because he's a clicker not a keybinder in WoW and I've been telling him it'll be his bane).

I would certainly buy another Asus system, but if my laptop is fine in a few years I would likely just build a dekstop.


I owned a Dell Insprion 1750. Garbage graphics, the laptop went to garbage just after the warranty ended, always caused me nothing but trouble. The processor couldn't handle the use I put into it I think, it was constantly overheating and freaking out. The screen was really flimsy and hollow, the style wasn't sleek and sturdy, it was like a 12-year-old designed it to break. The hinge for the screen broke and it was just well... garbage.

Sony Vaio VGN-FE770G
Bought like 5~6 years ago. Don't really use it now that I have a beefy desktop and no longer in school but it's served me well all this time and still functions like a charm.
Not a gaming laptop but decent enough Intel integrated graphics to handle lower end F2P mmos or low spec games.
But like any laptop, downside after this long is battery life and the hard to find replacement batteries.

Acer Aspire 5536, which is my main one and also the only computer I'm using right now.

I also have a Sony VAIO VGN-FE28H, another VAIO VGN-S2XP and a HP Mini 1099 Vivienne Tam netbook. Both the VAIO's are in working order but rather outdated, and the netbook I only use when I'm travelling.

I love it for the most part, when I first got it I had a few problems, but since then it's been fine

Can run pretty much any game in best graphics possible. "Desktop replacement" lol.
