Surprisingly, nobody has mentioned Toshiba.

Very well built, everything is 100% accessible and there is even the ability to configure bios settings from within windows using the hw utility.

Hp laptops are, unless business class, poorly built and prone to hinge failure a few years down the road in my experience.

If you really want a nice device, check out the surface book. You can get the first generation which still holds up quite well or the 2nd generation - either way you go, you're getting one heck of a computer that will last you and with none of the junk from other manufacturer, just windows.

I once had a chat with someone on the HP Support desk who said  that business class laptops are designed to be more robust than those for the home market.  My Hp is now over 6 years old, used evry day and still going strong.

I see what you mean now. Yes, for what she wants to do, it'
s better for her to have something that will last for a long time. I've heard that Lenovo is a very good brand.

Well, she is taking up software engineering, which means that she needs a machine that can handle intensive work loads when she writes her programs.  She needs the space to install the programming environments that she will be working in, which includes IDEs, Debuggers and a lot of storage space because  the writeten programs itself takes up a considerable amount of space, ram and memory.  Furthermore, Lenovo is one of the longest lasting machines out there.  I've had mine for almost
4 years now and it is still performing to it's high standards.  I bought mine for around the same price, might be a bit less, but I've had no issues with my lenovo machine even though I use it for my programming work, plus music production work almost daily.  Sometimes, it is helpful to ourselves to pay for something that lasts, pick our pocket once, but never have to worry about longevity and reliability for at least a few years.  Cheers!

That sounds like it's very expensive.

I think it is crazy to pay so much for a laptop.

I just looked at the Lenovo website since several people recommended 
them. They have a 10% student discount on some of their laptops. I 
think I might have just found a good one for me. Take a look at this:
I like how it can be a laptop or a tablet and how it has a 
fingerprint reader. My mom said that I could get both a laptop and a 
Braille notetaker or display if I could keep the payments for each 
one under
$100 per month. I did some calculations and found out that with this 
laptop, if I take 2 years to pay it off, the payments would be about
$84 per month. It sounds like a really nice laptop. What do you all think?

Hi, everyone. This is Lanie Molinar. I'm sending this to a lot of 
lists at once. Some are tech-related, some are related to software 
development, and some are for students. I might have to get a new 
laptop soon and have a few questions. First, let me give you a 
little background info to help you understand what I'm looking for. 
I'm a college student getting a degree in Software Engineering, so 
I'll be working with code and developing things. I also have several 
disabilities and health issues in addition to my blindness, so I 
can't do much physically and spend a lot of my day on the computer 
doing schoolwork, taking surveys for extra money, gaming, and doing 
lots of other stuff. I'm fairly sure that I want a computer with 
Windows 10, not a Mac, although I'm willing to look into a Mac if 
that seems better. I would also be happy with something running 
Linux. I definitely want something new, not used, with plenty of RAM.
There are so many options that I'm just not sure what to look for or 
where to get it. Again, I also need something that can handle being 
used all day, gaming, and developing software. My family is 
low-income, so I need to get it from somewhere that offers good 
payment plans. Can anyone give me some advice on how to choose a 
laptop, good places to buy one from, and what I should get? For 
those on software
development- related lists, I'm interested in what would be best for 
a developer. I would really appreciate any help. Thanks.
