    Best makes of laptop?

    Hi,
    Can anybody offer any advice on the best makes of laptop to be looking for (with a 17" screen) - for example what order would you rank Dell/Toshiba/HP/Acer/etc?
    The spec. does not need to be outstanding as the budget is not massive (
    Also any tips for looking on Dell Outlet for bargains... eg best time to check etc?

    Thanks!

    Looks good -thanks. I have never owned an Advent computer, is it false economy, or are they okay?
    (Not very easy to search the Dixons refurb site based on screen size is it!?)

    I personally recommend Dell over other brands as they have great product and driver support, Advent are pretty much the worst for product support charging £30 for a windows XP driver CD, Advent systems look good though and usually are cheaper at equivalent specs.

    Am using an Advent laptop at the moment, and would definitely chose another one rather than a dell. Have had 2 dell laptops that caused nothing but problems, but not had a problem with advent laptop or computer

    There's only a few companies (ODM) that make laptops, these are then badged... so the name really means nothing :).

    I'd would go for a Dell they are very reliable, cant vouch for the others. Just upgraded with another Dell.
