My local PC shop said they've never had an ASUS returned faulty in all the time they've been selling them (whereas he had about 6 dead Acer laptops lying around the shop with knackered mobos). I'm sure Japanese manufacturers are superior quality, i.e. Toshiba, Sony, Samsung, but it seems you pay a premium on the price for the extra quality. I didn't really want to go over £500.

So, my question is, am I likely to get a similar spec and quality laptop for a smaller price?

Thanks

Thanks, I forgot about Fujitsu Siemens.

This notebook is a little more expensive, has lower res screen, but does have BrilliantView TFT (?), higher CPU bus speed (1066 vs 800), Blu-ray DVD drive, a GeForce 9300M rather than an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500 HD, and a few other bits.

Would you say that's a better deal?

Just a quick note on ASUS. I have had an ASUS laptop for 4 years now, I got it just before I started Uni. It did everything that I wanted it to and is still going strong now. There was a slight problem with the fan after about a year, but that was sorted out on the guarantee without any problem at all.

So, if you are wondering about the reliability of ASUS, I agree with what you were told and would definitely recommend it.

I agree that ASUS is quite good for reliability. I would however advise you to reconsider the Laptop. See ASUS is one of the few companies that offers international warranty and accidental damage on most of its Laptops (sold in the US) free of charge. They also pay for carriage both ways. So if you know some1 in the US, try and buy an ASUS from there. They are cheaper and you'l get to keep your warranty as well.

for example look at Newegg for some idea on prices. Under laptops, go for a power search and just look at ASUS
