    Duh, but who sells more computers then the rest?? My Dell at the house AND the office work PERFECTLY. Sometimes it's not the company, but the users.

    I've had an eMachine and a Gateway, and would pay people to take those away from me!
    Oh well... to each their own.

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    I have had an eMachines laptop for 2 1/2 years and they only hardware problem I have had was when my four-year-old wrenched the screen up and tore out the left hand hinge. My Best Buy warranty took care of that.

    The only software problem I had was when I upgraded to Windows XP service pack 2. I had to get some new drivers from eMachines to fix the screwiness that caused.

    My Best Buy warranty got me a new battery. All I had to do is call and tell them that my battery was dead, and they mailed me a new one without even looking at my battery. Lithium ion batteries cost between $100-$150.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook pc, and I've had to send it in to Best Buy three times because their is a defect in the heating element with my model. Last time I sent it in, they informed me that next time I send it in to be sure and save all the files I may need because I won't get that computer back. They will send me a brand new computer!

    That 3 year warranty has really paid off.

    BTW, if you order your computer online or via phone or magazine, ask about student discounts because almost every computer company gives a 10% discount to college students. That goes for iPods too.

    Jen, I'm in the market for a lap-top on the cheap. I've got a mac at home, but some of my class stuff needs microsoft...plus, I'd like to take my lap-top to class (I type much faster than I write). So, what would you get if you were planning on spending roughly a grand. Thanks.
