Im certainly willing to pay a little extra if im sure to get quality, i have felt the differences between a cheap low quality and a more expensive high quality laptop. It is just 2 completly different tools you have in your hands. *praises her Toshiba*

My boyfriend just bought a Sony "something" and he seems fairly pleased with it, though he havent had time to test it to the fulliest yet, but he should likely get some time during next week (his a software programmer) and wanted a cheap but yet decent/good quality laptop.

I think there's a golden rule when it comes to the purchasing of laptops. It's important to purchase a laptop from a good company, a big company possibly that is recognised like Dell. Also, when you purchase a new laptop it comes with the warranty that may last for a year and here's the important thing, when the warranty expires it's important to renew it. By doing this the company will continue to provide free tech support and any repairs that need to be done. It's definitely worth keeping a warranty on a laptop, this isn't so important when it comes to a desktop. I do my own maintenance as I'm a qualified IT Technician and if you know what you are doing it certainly saves on maintenance charges and things like that. Andrew
