Laptop owners:

Where did you get you laptop, how much did it cost? Is it worth what you paid for it? If you had it to do all over again, would you buy the same kind?

  • I have an HP Pavillion Notebook, I think it was 700 or 800 at costco. I would do it again but it gets hot. Vista might be a problem too as it shuts down occasionally. I bought a protection plan for three years, not sure if that was a good idea or not. I'd probably not go Vista again.

  • I bought my HP laptop at Sam's Club and with the extended warranty, I spent $800. I love my laptop. This is my second HP laptop in 6 years. I would definately get another HP laptop. I have had no problems with either HP that I have had.

  • I have an Acer that I bought on sale at I've had it for 3 yearsst buy for $400. It's on it's second hard drive and I've only had it for 2 years. I have an Acer desk top that is great though. Who knows. We also have a Toshiba and 2 HPs . . . the only one still on the first hard drive is the Toshiba . . . . maybe I just have bad luck with computers though.

  • we have 2 toshiba's mine was $600 dh's was $1000 (his has a 19 inch screen and i don't even remember what else). at best buy, i love my computer! couldn't figure out what the biggie was about laptops til i got this and then realized how great they really are. so much easier, less space. i've only had it since feb but would def get the same thing all over again. we use AVG virus scan and i've never had a problem with it like i have problems with the desktop.

  • My husband bought all the laptops in our family and he always goes for the best deals with the best inclusions on the laptops.
    When he buys a new one every 2-3 years he hands his used one down to a family member who needs it. I got his last one so it is still like new because he only bought it a year ago. The college he began to attend included a new laptop in their tuition so he bought an awesome one!
    He did promise me a brand new laptop of my own before the end of this year with the specs I want.
    I don't know what he pays but I know they aren't over $1,000.
