Default How are these companies?

I have a Gateway laptop now and have used or am familiar with other brands like Dell, HP, Toshiba, Sony, etc. that are in the laptop market.

I have recently been seeing laptops from Asus and MSI, 2 brands that I have seen in the components business, but I am not familiar with their laptops, so my question is this.

To any one who has used them or knows of them, what is their reputation and quality like? are they good laptops, are they cheaper than their competition? more expensive? better quality? do MSI or Asus laptops use their own brand parts in their laptops? (IE Asus or MSI motherboards, etc..)

I am interested in them and learning more about these laptops. Thank you!

Asus is very reputable in the laptop business. They use predominantly their own parts. MSI I'm not quite sure.

I'm with Abstract. ASUS is far beyond the top dog. Underdog, if you will. :P I have an ASUS EEE1005HA netbook, EEEBox 1006 compact desktop, along with several of their desktop motherboards. I am very happy with them.
