I've heard lots of stories about very poor customer support and just the quality of their products not being the best.

Maybe try looking for an Asus laptop?

HP - EliteBook or Probook, they are good for what you are going to use it for. But that is my opinion and personal experience.

If it's strictly for school/work, then I would buy something small, light, cheap, and with good customer support.

There is nothing like asking my friends and a good Google search to put my fears aside in a potential purchase. 🙂

I heard Lenovo is one of the best brands when it comes to laptops at present. So I suggest you consider the brand.
Just decide wisely on what best suits you and your needs. Good luck!

HP's outta the pc business...other than software, which they acquired Autonomy for, and printers. You don't want to get stuck with a warranty issue with a HP laptop now. Unless you get the HP laptop for practically nothing, stay away. Don't bother with there printers either..their horrible. Lenovo makes some of the best laptops on the market and their resale value holds up pretty well for a tech item. I've owned acer monitors and have never had a problem but I've never, and don't know anyone, who's tried their pc's.

Where do you get that from massdeth? I have an HP Probook 6540B. And I'm lovin it. Never had problems with it so far. It's more than a year old now. My battery was dead, I got a free new one. Just bad experience?

Where do I get what from spaiker? I've owned a bunch of HP all in one printers that were just junk, if that what you mean. I'm actually looking for a new printer now cause the third one has died...but it was given to me from a friend, I didn't buy this one thank god!!

That, Here in Belgium HP is a big player in the PC/Laptop business. Including warranty. Just because you and some friends of you had a bad experience with HP doesn't mean everything is bad from them. HP is top notch for business laptops as far as I'm conserned. But everyone is allowed to have an opinion, and I voice mine 🙂

I think you misinterpret what im saying...i mean this...while there pc may have been fine at one time, they no longer will be produceing them. so buying one now is probably not the best idea being that there gonna just liquidate the stocks as quickly as possible for whatever they can get and it will most likely be alot of "as is" or short lived warrantys and not the regular warranty service one would expect from them. there pc's are just as generic as dell, gateway, acer etc.... and im sure they perform just the same.

agreed. had 4 clients within the past year and 3 of the systems were wierd hardware problems (bad motherboards) that I couldn't fix. I recommend dell business laptops, or cyberpowerpc.com or toshiba's laptops. much better hardware. I had an acer laptop that kept overheating. it was causing it to constantly shut down. I tried everything I could to save it. It was no use. That sucked.

Neither. You'd probably be better off getting a Sony or something, since all of the components in their laptops and whatnot are made by them. I don't really like Acers. Hell, I'm not really a Windows fan. I have a MacBook Pro.
