    Either of those is decent, but it depends on what you want to do, and where you want to do it. Lenovo Thinkpad branded, or Yoga 700/900 are great laptops, but ideapads are a waste of money.

    Either one of them, if the suggested retail is under $900 you’re getting questionable quality

    I have this shitty little Asus that I do everything on, it has like 4g's of ram and somehow I can edit all my pictures and still play wow. I love this little beast, but I really need to upgrade. There's like no space on this computer. Like 100g's. I need at least a terabyte.

    I just bought an ASUS for my home laptop, came with a 500gb ssd and 16gb of ram (i7 quad core too)

    If you have a portable hard drive to store files, 250gb is lots - but I think that’s the minimum for anyone who does more than web browsing

    Yeah, I have a 5 terabyte hard drive that I use, I also have a 2 and 3 terabyte harddrive as well lol

    I was looking at a couple asus's at staples, and I think I'll probably stick with this brand. It's done me no wrong so far.

    The only issue with ASUS is they’re not designed to be worked on, if something goes wrong they’re not always repairable.

    A Lenovo P series workstation would be a great choice for a business/media laptop, because they come with high end graphics, a 3 year warranty you can upgrade to 5 years, and if something goes wrong, they send someone to your house who fixes it. If something goes wrong with an ASUS after a year you just have to buy a new one, if it happens inside a year they give you a new one.

    Price wise, an entry level P series is around 1000, and for a good 1080p with a good sized ssd and discreet graphics you pay closer to 2000, but it’s guaranteed to go for 3 years, you might need 3 ASUS laptops in the time one of those will last and still run perfectly, guaranteed

    I think it’s a matter of 2000 now for 5 years vs potential 5000 over 5 years, spend more now to save a lot in the long run

    If you have a computer, it is the luckiest computer to have ever lived because it has you as the owner. :hearts:

    Is it something wrong to say someone as a friend.
    If you then, please excuse me.

    I really want one of the Lenovo Yoga 920 units, they’re pretty much the ultimate as far as consumer level laptops. Dell is okay, but their consumer stuff isn’t great

    Enterprise level HP, Dell or Lenovo are all excellent - the consumer level stuff uses components that weren’t good enough to use in the enterprise level stuff (fail stress tests, not expected to last the 3-5 years the warranty covers)

    Catch being they’re expensive, bonus being over 5 years with full warranty they’ll show up at your house and fix it. And they’re going to work perfectly in 5 years (because if anything does go wrong they’re going to fix it), still at a higher level than any consumer level stuff. Almost all consumer laptops are throw away, meaning even if it’s still under warranty, they’re going to give you a new one because they’re not designed to be fixed, even by the people who built them.
