  • Samsung NP-X60plus Core 2 Duo is! It's pretty fast and I'm getting one for my dad this Xmas.
  • Anything from Alienware I think. They have top performance.
  • Remember you said "best", not cheapest......... MacBook Pro. http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/ p.s. Also any laptop without Sony batteries..............lol
  • Since best is subjective, I'm going to go with the brand that has impressed me the most. The Toshiba Tecra line has consistently proved to be a major workhorse. My boyfriend lent his Tecra to a friend that was going to China. The moron packed it in his checked luggage. Needless to say, it got squished. The only things that broke on it were the fan and the standby pin. The Tecra I use is the most stable machine I've had the pleasure of working with. I'm so hard on my Windows installations that I usually have to start fresh every six months to a year. My first and current installation has been humming along for almost five years. My final anecdote is that the year I spent professionally repairing computers, I never once had a broken Toshiba laptop to work on. I helped customers through endless misery with HP, Sony, and Dell, though.
  • I have always liked Toshiba --- if you call and get them to custom build you one then you will have exactly what you want! That's what I always do and I have never been disappointed! I have the Tecra M5 right now. So fast and so reliable! Computers are a personal thing of course -- it's a matter of personal preference and mine is Toshiba. : )
  • In my opinion the best laptops are the second generation aluminium Apple PowerBook. I've been using one for 3 and a half years now and it has never let me down! I also think that the fact that the new MacBook Pros look essentially identical to it is testimony to its timeless good looks.
  • I have a DELL,but i hear that TOSHIBA and SONY are excelent laptops.
  • Thinkpad
  • I think Sony Vaio
  • apples
  • a dell notebook is what i have and it works better than ur buddies labtops ( faster,more RAM
  • MacBook Pro. Mine is amazing.
  • It depends what you are wanting the laptop for, in my opinion apple macs are better for graphics and probably music, but for performance wise a toshiba would be my choice, the one i got for my 18th birthday was the best ive ever used, and ive used alot.
  • Macbook or Macbook Pro.
  • It's all subjective and relates to exactly what you want the computer for. Personally I don't use a laptop (I know that's not what the question asked) because I know I don't need the portability. In essence, my answer is: Whatever provides the features you need.
  • TOSHIBA
  • the macbook, they are excellent
  • I say Dell E1505
  • Jesus! I didn't think you'd be asking in a "money is no issue" context.Those are some damn nice laptops.Anyone find any prices?Are they currently available? I just bought a Dell Inspiron e1405 Core 2 Duo 2.0, 2 gigs o ram, 4 mb l2 cache.My current one was a Dell so I was good with their quality.Any objections?
  • Awesome computer!!
  • I've had my ibook for about 4 years now and it hasn't given me any problems at all. The Mac operating system is the best - in my opinion.
  • A Dell Latitude 600 works just fine for me.
  • I like Dell and HP laptops.
  • I think Toshiba makes the best, most durable and reliable laptop for pre-configured. They are also far more flexible in terms of components, so there is always a higher level of customization there. However, I am partial to the non-badged custom laptops my business sells; we only use true Intel parts + motherboards, adding to the reliability of the parts involved.
  • Sony Vaio
  • IBM/Lenovo has the highest resale value because they are the best.
  • HP Pavillion ZE4200. I've had this laptop for about 3 or 4 years, and that's really elderly for a laptop computer. It works just like a new computer, and it has only 2000 megabites of memory left(I store a lot on this thing) and its working like I just got it yesterday. My mother got the same thing except an udated model(year 2006 computer). This computer was really cheap too, I mean, it has a DVD player, CD burner, and most advanced stuff on it for less than $2000, HP is the best!!
  • My buddy just bought an alienware labtop, it was $3600 with lots of optional stuff, but it's trully awesome.
  • The Dell E1505 with Windows Vista has trouble playing DVDs. Hence, I returned it.
  • Any new laptop you buy now is going to have Windows Vista on it. And if you're going to play DVDs on your laptop (I'm sure most people do), any computer with Vista on it is going to give you problems except an Apple. If you're going to invest in a laptop get an Apple. You don't have to worry about viruses, it's easy to use, it's dependable, and it's computer that will always be ahead of anything Microsoft can come up with. But that's only my opinion.
  • Toshiba Qosmio G35 laptop is the best.It has intel core 2 duo processor,2 GB ddr2 sdram,17” Digital Widescreen WUXGA Ultimate TruBrite™ Display (1920 x 1200),NVIDIA® GeForce Go 7600 256MB GDDR3 graphics memory,240 GB hdd and it has HD-DVD technology.
  • IBM, Sony and Fujitsu
  • Apple.
  • I am partial to the IBM/Lenovo brand. They're more expensive than most other brands, but you get several features that I like (e.g. the little mini-joystick for cursor control) and their stuff tends to be mechanically bulletproof. For example, my IBM has been trampled by a 170 lb. Great Dane and, other than some surface scratches, it survived with no problems.
  • I like to push Toshiba, if we're talking Windows machines. I work in a PC repair shop and we see Toshibas in here a lot less than any other brand. They are much more sturdy and reliable than any other laptop I've seen. Plus, our shop is a reseller for Toshiba, and I don't think we'd bother with anything else. Steer clear of Dell and Acer if you can.
  • I have no choice but to say Apple, because of the operating system, MacOsX, which is magnificent. A year ago I would have sung the praises of the laptop hardware too, but its getting a bit left behind in the speed/graphics stakes. I think we are all waiting now for Apple's next leap forward. They usually get well ahead about every three years, maintain the lead for 2, then fall a little behind for 1, which is where we are now on laptops. But it doesn't matter, I simply have to have MacOsX. Ah well.
  • Toshiba and HP get my votes.
  • Apple Laptops are outstanding. If you restrict the question to PC, it has to be the Toshiba. Can't tell you how many times mine were dropped, jostled, etc over time and worked just fine. I've owned both Tecra's and Protege models.
  • Macbook Pro 15” or 17”
  • I have a laptop made by Hi-Grade it is quite cool....Intel Core Duo and all that..... but I would like either Alien Wear or a Mac Book Pro they are the dogs......
  • As to be alienware with mac a close second....
  • I just bought my first laptop so I don't know much I guess, but I am extremely happy with it. I bought a Dell XPS M1210, and its been a good laptop.
  • Toshiba USED to make a good product, not so much anymore. This is not true anymore. Stay away from HP or Compaq now as well. Sony make a good laptop, although a bit pricey. Macs are very very nice as well, and despite what you think, with bootstrapper will run all of your windows apps(even games). Consumer-end dells are junk, but their business and corporate products (latitude series) are top notch and consistently beat out all other notebooks in testing/benchmarking. I just bought a Latitude D620 after owning a compaq for a few years. It's like night and day. Not only because the latitude is newer and has a C2D, Nvidia 256MB 7300/110 NVS Quadro, 1GB ram, 120GB HD, etc. It also has up to 3 hours battery life, an array of addons(9 cell battery, expansion bay for 2nd 6 cell) and security features (HD lock card, HD encryption, COMPUTRACE, etc) and it weighs about 6 pounds. I am very happy with it.
  • Macbook Pro... definitely. With an Nvidia video card of course. Boo on ATI!
  • id say the mtech d900c
  • Dell is the best!!
  • No Doubts... go with Apple!
  • i have an IPC laptop.. no problems.. ever! :)
  • HP 4gigs of ram 250 gig hd and 20 inch screen LOVE IT
  • I would say Apple if your willing to dish some money out of your wallet but if you just want a basic laptop to do basic needs it's got to be either the HP (which does more than basic; music and photos) but also would have to be Gateway or an Acer.
  • Apple costs too much, mostly because it's unique and more stylish Toshiba is good.
  • I always found alienware to be a good laptop to go with. Oh, and in contrast to the general idea that apple is the way to go, you should consider what you are looking for before you go and buy a box with an OS you may know nothing about. If you want to surf the net, use for college papers, generally make music/movies (windows does this just as well, if not better, but many people seem to think that macs are more "creative") than a mac is for you. If you want a gaming council, go with alienware and windows. There really isn't a question. If you want an all around entertainment system, still go with alienware and windows/linux, I've never had a problem with mine and I swear by the brand. edit-of course these days I believe macs can run windows in a duel boot (I think) but I can still say that apple is pricier than all hell.
  • I like Sony Vaio the most
  • Toshiba!! The best laptop ever..the money you paid is very worth the laptop..Ü
  • there is no true best laptop, it all depends on what you are looking for. Try newegg.com they have a great selection of laptops with plenty of reviews and give you any infomation you would need with it, plus they are really competitive with prices, and always have some sort of sale going on.
  • Most of my computer products are H.P. HP offers great support. Most of all... I have found their products reliable. If there is a problem... HP will have y'r PC picked up ... repaired and sent back to you... free of charge... (under warrantee)
  • it probably isn't the absolute best but in terms of bang for the buck without problems i've been happy with toshibas
  • what kind did you buy? it may be the software and not the "brand"
  • I have TOSHIBA... It's Great.
  • Dell is best, but H P might be the better value, but not the best performer.
  • It's pretty hard to say one brand is better than another with much finality. Each brand tends to have problem models. I have had good luck with Acer, Winbook, Toshiba, and Dell. Having said that: some older Winbooks have screen hinge weaknesses, certain Toshibas suffer from overheat issues due to the airflow design (clogging with dust prematurely), and Dell doesn't escape unscathed either with certain models. Acer and Winbook tend to give you a lot of machine for the money. Toshiba and Dell have a few machines with stand-out features/layouts (for my taste). Sony can be fine as well but they tend to be a bit costly for what you get....though they are usually fairly stylish (sort of like the Apple of the PC world if you will).
  • HI THIS IS A HARD ONE TO SAY WHICH IS THE BEST IVE ALWAYS HAD ACER BUT HAD TO REPLACE MY POWER LEAD WITHIN AN YEAR OF PURCHASE APRT FROM THAT IVE HAD NO REAL PROBLEMS TOUCH WOOD. IT ALL DEPENDS REALLY PEOPLE COULD SAY THEY HAVE THE BEST MAKE LAP TOP I WOULD SAY STICK TO THE KNOWN NAMES AND WELL POPULAR MAKES GOOD LUCK
  • I personally like Toshiba, or IBM, they can take ALOT of abuse
  • I've had good results with Dell, specifically their Latitude and XPS models. Also just recently bought a Lenovo refurbished, pretty rock-solid so far.
  • I've never had a problem with acer, great company. Saying that. what are you looking for? If your looking for a simple notebook with wifi, writing & editing options, easy web surfing and the like. I would suggest an Asus EE http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8643426&type=product&id=1195597748307 Their rather small, but nicely designed, cheap, and the one I "borrow" (take for a week at a time) from my friend is very reliable.
  • I have a dell! i have had great service with them.
  • I have a Dell XPS and I've had good luck with it so far.
  • Acer is made by Texas Instruments. Had mine for 2years. Nothing but praise!
  • I've had my MacBook for about 8 months and I just now got my first problem. It's not even with the computer itself, just the charger.
  • Sony and Toshiba make good stuff. Acer is also good for a lower price alt. Alien is hot for the really high end stuff. The new Dell XPS's look good. Make sure you take advantage of the maximum memory available and largest HD as well as OS choices (Home Prem is minimum for Vista, but try for Ultimate) Just like try for XP Pro and look for one with Office (full suite) I have two new sony's, and two older toshibas .
  • why ruin your laptop with windows... macbook pro
  • Lenovo or Ibm I like.
  • I just bought a dell xps and I love it.
  • I like apple and Toshiba.
  • After two awful HP's and a mediocre Dell, finally my company gave a Mac Book Pro. It is orgasmic. Perhaps it is not only the gorgeous laptop itself, but Mac OS X. As a friend of mine said: if you want to see what will Microsoft try to imitate next, just take a glance over the last Mac.
  • I have had a gateway and I have put it through hell for 4 years. I am looking to buy another one and will probably go back with gateway although our Dell desktops are great and the office emachines work well also...
  • What do u mean about "the best" ? We have battery lifetime, performance, weight and/or cool features ... my bet is on Dell XPS series, which surpasses any other laptop series because of their core 2 duo/quad and high-end video (nvidia 8x series), check out some benchmark sites and u'll see what I mean). Dell provides a powerful laptop computer and it's not compared to mac since they're like fire and water :p ... mac does some great job with editing video and rederization, but ... it's no gaming platform and not quite the best choice in your office. And ... toshiba ... besides good batteries I don't see why you'd want to buy something that does that: http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9030338
  • I have a gateway and an acer - I know people who own Mac and they love them... I just like the apple on the cover that lights up... If I could get anyone I wanted I would get a VAIO by Sony
  • It all depends on what you need it for. Toshiba and Lenovo are good choices. The question is highly subjective and the answer will all depend on what you do with your computer. For the outdoors and rough enviroments or like to check email in the pool or while showering then Panasonc or Itronix would be your two best choices. If you are into games, Voodoo, Alienware, or Falcon N-W are your best choices. If you are a businessman and travel much then a lightweight semi-rugged laptop with a good runtime is important Lenovo X300 or Dell Latitude will be your best choices. If you are very multimedia centric, the Toshiba or HP would be two very wise choices. If you are an old lady who just likes to read email jokes then the cheapest laptop with a good amount of RAM is the best one for you. There are lots of laptops out there which one is "the best" all depends on who you are.
  • anything with an apple on it. Especially if you have or want anything to do with audio or visual art.
  • Macbooks are very good, but not for gaming.
  • Toshiba Tecra is best as i compared all the others brands. It costs less and fast for basic users.
  • I spend half of my day on Macbook and half on an Compaq Presario, and I must choose the Macbook.
  • I have a compaq, I like it.
  • http://www.rave.com/DOWNLOADS/thirdparty/flexSPARCIII.pdf but I'm a unix geek :p
  • Ether Dell or Toshiba. Dell cost less and last a long time. Toshiba has a lot of memorey and is really fast but is expensive so i would go with dell. But hey it's your choice
  • really, it depends on what you use the computer for. i personally love macs. they are very user friendly and easy to use along with having many useful and fun programs built into the computer already. pc's are better if you want to do more technical things with it or alot of gaming. but i stongly suggest looking into macs such as a powerbook or macbook most people dont give them a chance.
  • I'm very happy with my Dell Inspiron. They're fairly cheap, customer service is good, and it's easy to upgrade. The one sticking point with these is the screen... at around 18 months to 2 years old, the baclight tends to fail. Dell will tell you to buy an entire screen, but you can buy the light for around £25.
  • Panasonic toughbook all the way, you can check AB and protect yourself from enemy fire at the same time. http://www.mavromatic.com/archives/000105
  • I'm sure there are computers better than you one I have, but I bought a macbook pro because it's the one I wanted and I like it.
  • Any pc / Laptop all boils down to your need and specification..
  • hypersonic, Saeger, or Voodoo. Banshee, and Evesham is good also
  • one that doesn't have vista installed on it
  • HP is the good brand in USA.
  • HP or Compaq awesome
  • HP/ Compac is powerful and comes with everything you need at a good price. The warranty is great!
