I own three Dells. A E1505 Laptop that I've had since 2006 that is still trucking along, A 530 Desktop that is currently out of commission due to a blown power supply unit, and then I keep a Mini 12 at my brother's apartment for entertainment when I'm babysitting my nephew while he's napping or something.
Needless to say I like Dell, and I'm satisfied with their equipment and service (They've always fixed any issues I've had with my E1505 that suffered LCD hinges breaking under normal use.)
I've owned a Sony VAIO as well, as I liked Sony products in general... However, the Vaio gave me lots of issues, first the LCD hinges broke on that due to poor design, and THEN turns out the graphics card chip in it was faulty and no-one said anything (Sony or NVIDIA) til years later when a lawsuit or something dropped... My card melted. I technically wasn't one of the affected models, but I had the chip that was faulty in it, so Sony was nice enough to hon or the fact that I had the affected model chip and replaced it for free.
Sadly that computer is out of commission now because the hinge is breaking...
I have trouble with LCD hinges yeah? It's because I've used laptops that have the old design of hinges, nowadays it's just one long roll-like hinge.
MOVING ON, I also own a CR-48, which is the test laptops that Google had a test program going last year. Now they have the Chromebooks out.
