Looks are subjective...

As far as warranties and taking them apart. I've never had any problems with a few acers that I've had, therefore never had the need to take mine apart.
Just out of curiosity, what was your experience with acer to give their warranty system a bad taste in your mouth? I've only had to send back a monitor and it was replaced fairly quickly after 1 year... no questions asked. They paid shipping too. It was sent back to Acer directly, not a 3rd party.

As for crashing a lot, I just haven't had similar experiences. I'm not going to say that the Aspire I own is the best laptop ever.. or the best laptop company ever, but certainly... for today... they are on the top of my list for the product and experiences that I have had. For consistency sake, most likely HP.

As for the Macbook Air... I would never "hate" on Apple. I simply just don't justify the price tag that they have on their Air (with no accessories) especially given that a better performing, but heavier, XPS would be $300 cheaper. I COMPLETELY see that they have their use in a particular persons hands. If you wanted to get a strong notebook for remote access and surfing the net @ starbucks, then the Air might be your best bet. Personally, an an IT professional, I just need more than what the Air has to offer for the price. I've used one for about 15 minutes this past weekend. I gave it an open mind. I just wasn't into it. I almost felt like 1 hit in the wrong direction... or too much heat would be the death of it.

Hello,

Quad does have a point. This is in the Laptop area. It should have only been on laptop preferences. Not on brands in general. That should have been placed in a different part of the forum.

Moved to Other HW area.

Cheers,
Mak

1. EVGA
2. SeaGate
3. Intel
4. G.Skill
5. HP/Compaq

Dislike:
1. Apple (wouldn't dislike them so much, if not for their constant M$ bashing/arrogant fanboys)
2. Old Maxtor (now they're owned by SeaGate, so they should be a bit better now)
3. Some Dell stuff

Dislikes in general about any prebuilt PC/Laptop:
* poorly designed power supplies with low quality components
* poorly designed cases with illogical positions of things
* manufacturers that skimp out on RAM (come on, DDR2 is so CHEAP nowadays. There's really no excuse not to have at least 2GB)
* advertisements that are vague, lack important details, and/or are deceptive (such as listing amount of graphics memory, but not the GPU)

In terms of preferences of laptop brands, I don't really have any. I just use a list of criteria they have to meet.
