the reason that toshiba is not mentioned is that they have withdrawn from the pc market for consumer systems. Toshiba got bankrupted after the accounting scandal

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.

Cheers

I own two lenovo computers and I am very happy with them they are business class computers but well worth it.

    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!

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

                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.
