First GOTW AwardSecond GOTW AwardThird GOTW AwardPicture Me This -Round 26- Winner!

My Sony MZ-R91 had problems 1 year after I bought it. PS1 needed a replacement laser. First PSP had more dead pixels than I care to remember. Had some random mid-range Sony speakers in the late 90's which needed a replacement tweeter. Sony DVD player gave up the ghost, which funnily enough was 100 more than another DVD player we bought (X-Wave) but the video output broke. X-Wave still going after 9 years!

I don't feel comfy around Sony stuff. Good for short term like you say Muz. A shame they see themselves as a high-end a/v brand when their products are middle of the road in quality and design and should be priced as such. Alongside Goodmans, Hitachi et al.

Lower spec? The Macbook Pro had the highest Vista rating for a long time, they have a deal with Intel to get new chips before other manufacturers. Just their non-pro hardware line doesn't have excellent graphics cards.

My Acer laptop has just about four and a half years to its name and has suddenly decided that half of its memory doesn't exist (it's definitely in there, but Windows says only half is). Fortunately, that should be upgraded in a few days so hopefully I can whip a year or two out of it yet It still manages to play Trackmania Nations Forever on 256Mb though somehow! Which is all that matters at the moment...

As a side note, the keyboard is a bit pants and the 'l' keeps falling off.

Dell, as well as other manufacturers install pieces that they can get cheap so you get a cheap laptop. Sony's and Macs generally have lower spec but better quality hardware hence why they last longer and are more expensive for the same spec as a Dell.



Yeah, my sis had a mid-line Dell laptop (plenty of added RAM, bluetooth, network stuff but no proper gfx card). Got it 4 years ago and it still works.

But I disagree that you need lots of money for a good one. My dad has an Acer laptop which came with one of those Geforce 7 series for laptops or something. Plenty of RAM, memory, comes with a free laptop backpack. Only at about $600. But it uses a generic AMD processor instead of a generic Intel one.

Heh, if I had a choice between an unnamed brand and Sony, I normally pick the unnamed brand, just because it's cheaper. By the time it dies, there's usually something with far better specs on the market.

You can read what the blue screen error is,if you press F8 at boot time and click the option to disable automatic reboot on error,it will do so until your next reboot.
You can also do this through the system properties in Vista :
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/help-troubleshoot-the-blue-screen-of-death-by-preventing-automatic-reboot

The only decent laptops in my opinion for their price if you are considering DELL, I believe are the customisable Vostro1700 with 1920x1200 res. Truelife screen.
For approx. 900(uk P) inc. vat you get a very good desktop replacement and you are labelled as business customer,which is better for support .
If you are using Windows Vista,you will need 3GB to run it smoothly,which this laptop has.

Well you said this
"i barely even get a blue screen of death. it pops up for a split second not letting me read what it says and reboots the computer. "
so I thought to mention the way to see the message.

Anyway glad you sorted your problem.

Listen, the solution is simple:
