Good Laptop........INTEL not CELERON

By premjis ·
I am in the process of buying a Laptop but not sure what brand and the bells and whistles. I am prepared to spend $2,400 Canadian (total).

Please any ideas and Brand name?

I may use it to do some remote network and PC maintenance and other usual stuff like Internet, MS Office work etc.etc.

I hear Dell makes good Laptops?

Thanks,

Sam

Our Co. buys all Dells. Their support page is easy to follow and with the code number on your computer you are lead straight to information pertaining to your laptop. There are download upgrades when available with easy to follow instructions. They are very competitive in price. All of these reasons is why Dell is number one in mail order.

They're all DELL here, too. Seem like pretty good systems, at a good value.

Another brand name worth looking at is IBM ThinkPad. I've seen these in action and was favourably impressed. They are very competitively priced with reasonable (but not terrific) support.

I've worked with Compaq laptops, IBM ThinkPads, Dell laptops and WinBook laptops.

My personal preference is WinBook (I have an old 266 MHz at home). I am thinking about a newer Dell (but cannot afford it just yet).

I'd go with either Dell or WinBook. Dell tends to have better support, but WinBook tends to be sturdy and trouble-free.

The only problem I had with my Winbook is that a capacitor was replaced (under it's 1 year warranty) when the screen started flickering. It's been trouble-free since. Even the battery still holds a full charge and lasts properly!

It's looking like Dell all over.

My place buys all Dells too - Latitude CP thru to CSx. All are very reliable, quite rugged, and Dell support is very good.

I've also used an IBM which was expensive but okay - though I never liked the little nipple that passes as a mouse. The Dell touchpads are much easier to use.

A while ago I used a Toshiba for a while, and that was okay too though was underpowered.

Dell works great. I have had one for 2 years with no problems. Tech Support is quick and helpful. I bought mine Refurbished and saved about 15%.

My Inspiron had a 15" screen (17" in the monitor world) and is the same size or bigger than most desktop computers. Very, very helpful for desktop replacement purposes.
