Title: Alright nerds, who makes a good windows laptop these days?
Post by: skateandannoy on September 05, 2017, 05:31:01 PM
Don't say Linux Jer, I'm not smart enough to know how that works.

Every windows laptop I see these days looks super cheap and awful. Anyone know who makes something good in this day and age? Anyone happy with their laptop? I've had Dell and Sony ones and they were garbage. The Lenovo and Asus ones my friends had at school seemed really cheap. I have a macbook for my art stuff but I need to keep all my years of Windows info somewhere. Reviews online don't seem very helpful. What should I do?!

Linux? I only run a leaked bootleg release of BeOS 5.1 from before they went bankrupt in 2000.

It's not a very good user experience, tbh.

I have a Toshiba touch screen laptop that I like. It's small so it's easy to take around and it flips to a tablet or presentation mode. It doesn't have much space on it so if you do gaming or whatever it probably wouldn't be for you but it's great for the internet and word processing

After a few years of working in tech support, Im thinking about making a Linux based operating system called Senior.  You can't download anything and it has five buttons: Emails, internets, photos, Facebook, casino game.

It's a good joke except this actually exists in multiple forms already in non ironic ways.

I had a Toshiba that lasted 6 years and I now have an HP that has lasted 3 and still works great. I go for big screen laptops cause of my eyes and both were reasonably priced (~$600 give or take) and work real well.
