I think it was about £60 for a £900 build so, for the warranty and peace of mind, it's almost not worth building your own.
Mind you I enjoyed building my own and I glow every time I switch it on

Self builds all the way.

John maybe you should check the wiring again.

If you're just looking for statistics for an assignment, and this poll is what it's based on - well, there aren't any obvious leaders/laggards when it comes to laptop brands, it really mostly boils down to preference. You might as well populate your data with some nice dice rolls :P In fact I think some of us here would enjoy trying to see if random dice roll results agree with what they think when it comes to picking favourite laptop brands...

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

You forgot eMachines too, but those are rare nowadays.
I personally prefer DELL computers, they are built to last long, perform quickly and with the customer in mind.

Help us 'help you'. A clearer idea of your topics premise may cut down on useless data.

For your stats - are you concentrating on quality available now or quality from years ago? Or is it simply X amount of people prefer brand A compared to brand B?

Does your overall thesis/Topic have a subjective outcome? ie Quality overall has declined regardless of brand choice, or are you simply after raw 'consumer' data?


For stat fluff sake - I had a pre-built Hewlett Packard which lasted Seven+ years until I intentionally 'terminated it'

The family had a Packard Bell that that was a PITA flawed unit from day one for 5+ years. The 15"inch LCD screen still works though

More recent, My sister has a Compaq Presario Laptop that made it ~2years before requiring repairs.

My father had an ASUS eepc that still works, although the build quality is sub-par.

Sheep Stats:

Sheep consumer choice:


Recognised Brand reputability. Configurable options. Range. Price. After sales 'support'

Apple. Same as a above.

How can I change my computer and not lose use of my favorite software
There seems to be little option when replacing an old computer than to settle for Win8. However, for me this would entail replacement, at unacceptable cost, of much of my somewhat ‘antiquated’ but adequate software running on Win XP - WordPerfect 12, Lotus 1-2-3 9.6, Excel 2000 9.0, Adobe Photo...
