Think am in the minority but always liked HPs kit. Bought laptops and PCs and always done the job.

its hit and miss the 610 series is ok (unless you need tor replace a trackpad when it took me 90 mins 1st time or screen where there are left handed and right handed versions) 620 series is horrid slow to image from network mouse jumps allover aparantly and no off switch for the trackpad. Ive had the same issues with toshibas some are great some are really not. lenovos the few ive had ive not had an issue with (and my brother in law has them at work and he seems to like them) given the choice id still have asus though my old laptop lasted 7 years or so still works but video card is iffy and makes black purple

We bought about 90 610s a year or so back, and the trackpad buttons are awful. But to be fair to HP I got them to fix 11 all at the same time and they sorted it, all came back within a few days.

We have bought a few Toshiba C660s recently and their are awful, feel plastic and cheap. Had lots of Lenovo's a good few years back and they have done the job, if a little ugly looking.
Still Fujitsu Siemens have the worst support, you have to beg them to take anything back.

na acers worse than fuji umo
i actuallt like teh tosh 660s so far they seem to work granted the fake cabon fibre weave on them is tacky but tbh as long as it works job done (granted my laptop is a different matter to a degree but as teachers are getting a free machine so tough lol and mines a pain it came with a polishing cloth and the slightest touch of the lid shows up something awful lol)

Hopefully the bits inside the Toshbia are fine, and its just the outside thats a bit naff.

Im completely Pro the HP Professional Desktop Ranges but some of the consumer stuff is shocking and the support for these is entirely different with the Pro being excellent and the consumer being virtually non existent.
It was the consumer or (Personal Products) division that they were looking to get rid of I thought and to be honest I probably wouldnt have noticed or cared.
The only real aggro I have ever had with HP kit has been the consumer stuff.

Exactly the same as above - at my last place we purchased a few of the consume machines and they where ok but parts which where just off the shelf. Whereas the Pro Range stuff (and sff machines) are custom designed to the case i find.
