    Top Tier HP and ACER (Gateway) these are just fine laptops (notebooks) and netbooks. ACER is much more cheaper in price than HP. Although the race is on to see if HP can be over taken by ACER. DELL, Toshiba and ASUS are playing catch-up

    I'm sorry but this is actually upsetting to see that soo many people will buy an acrap! I mean Dell are not exactly good by any standard but everything Dell do they do better than Acer and HP is completely out of this world! This is just price fixing by acer to get to number one, After working with them for the last few years I will never ever buy one as long as any other company that makes computers are on this planet.

    To bad, to me ACER is top notch! Sure all major brands are not going to be A-1 but, I've repair many DELLs and actually own two that I keep going with spare parts of parts I can get off ebay cheap. DELL use to make very good Latitudes and originally back in the 90's had taken over AST to make the DELL laptops back then. HP was popular with Omi-Book back in 90's. Compaq before the merger with HP and prior taking over DEC Digital System prior. TI Texas Instrument Laptops were much better than HP prior. Toshia Tecra line was better prior. Today I don't know why quality has change with Toshiba. I have one of their Tecra Line 8000 still works today. That cost $4,000 back in 1998 PII 266MHz, 256MB of SDRAM, 256-bit GPU with 8MB of RAM. That can only run Windows XP Pro SP3. My point is the quality of the hardware is better back then. That model if I had taken out the HDD and stick it into one of my DELL Latitude C600 series the system can run off that HDD. You try that today with these modern laptops not going to work. Goes to show you how the cloning of brands were back then.
