    Maybe, for some laptop collectors here I'd like to ask this question. :rolleyes: :D

    What do you think is the best laptop that you can recommend with a low priced tags? I mean, even with their low pricing it is still tough and good enough for those low buget person to use. With 15 inch monitor..:rolleyes: :cautious:

    Laptops aren't cheap to begin with ... but depending on where you live, there are often good deals to be had. I don't have one currently, but I am looking around for one at the moment. Durability/Quality wise while keeping cost as a factor ... Acer (or Toshiba) would give you the best bang for the buck -- that is at least what has been recommended to me. ;)

    Both of those seem to hold in there pretty well with the best features for the buck :thumb:

    I got a cheapy Acer for testing, and was actually quite pleasantly surprised. It's just as good as my other that cost 2-3 times as much and even has a bigger screen :)

    Toshiba is a reliable brand, but the only problem I have with it is that, in my experience, they have way too many processes running. The two that I've owned all had 70+ processes from a factory installation that I had to swade through.

    Oh, and I've had a problem with a friend's Toshiba and it's optical drive every time it goes into hiberation.

    I haven't played with an Acer yet, but that's what I look forward to getting next year when AMD comes out with their new chips.

    I have a rugged $3500 HP laptop for work. My personal laptop is a $700 Acer and, no kidding, I like my Acer better. Many people in the USA have a poor impression remembering the Acer of old. They are history. Today's Acer is completely different. I plan to buy another for my son this Christmas.

    If you looking at the budget end, consider going 2nd hand. I got my Dell Latitude sub-notebook off ebay for £200 (with 30days warrenty) a couple of years ago and then bought a bigger hdd and more ram.
