New laptop purchase help SAMSUNG vs ASUS

I am undecided between these:
Specs are pretty much the same, same graphics card, same CPu, same price
Asus 53SC-SX038V
Samsung NP 300E5A-S05GR
HP Pavilion A2U25EA
HP G6-1201EV
Toshiba SAT C660
I'll need it mostly for work, occasionaly for games (i have an xbox360 so i dont care so much about demanding grafics as long as it can play something like skyrim low settings, but smoothly im fine), would mostly be during travels on train/plane.
One important factor is heat, meaning that the notebook wont heat, i noticed the asus is good in that department. I will most likely use this comp for work (mostly law related, recent law school graduate YAYYYY). Possibly a good built that will last a few years. not looking to replace it in a few years. I persoanlyl like the Asus ans Samsung best, so if it came down to these two which would take the lead?
Thak you

I have both Samsung and Asus. Work pretty good for one year now. But from all assistance I gave to friends in buying durable laptop, Toshiba stays as the best with almost zero complaints. But, price is the only problem

You say the specs are both the same so go with the one you prefer. I have heard good things though about ASUS but imo all laptops/pc's are just as reliable as each other, I would still go with the samsung out of the 2. If I was buying myself I may be swayed with a dell, or I would actually be swayed by the Toshiba over the Samsung for computing hardware. TBH tho' they are all about as reliable as each other.

Hi everyone,
This is my RMA story.


Every third ASUS laptop is DIFFECTIVE.


I had a custom Asus gaming laptop G51JX-3DE/G60JX ($2351) from Xoticpc.com. I can’t say I have it because it has already been in the Asus repair station for more than 2 months and I don’t know when I will get it back. My RMA status is still the same: "Waiting-[WB1] Wait for Material/Spare Parts". I emailed the Asus representative Mr. Tien Phan cl-tien@asus.com and got the response that the issue with my notebook was duplicated, and it was currently at a repair station waiting for the necessary parts to come in.
Because of that I began to initiate some action and look at what I could dig up.
If you look at the Asus website you will see that now it only has 2 gaming laptops G75VW (17’) and G55VW (15’), but there were a dozen different models in 2010.
My friend’s computer market analyst said that the Asus repair station is piled up with defective laptops, transformers, tablets. Almost every third ASUS laptop is DIFFECTIVE.
Since 2008 Asus started to produce their own laptops in huge amounts, though previously it was focused on the production of motherboard and other components. The range of its products increased in many times. They tried to compete even with Apple (Zenbook, Pads). But the Asus team just can’t compete with Steve Jobs’ team. As a result the quality of Asus products begins to fall dramatically. Asus Customer Service just can’t cope with the avalanche of custom claims.

Unfortunately, the quality of the motherboards – diamond in Asus crown – became worse compared to what it was before 2010. I built three rigs with Asus motherboards, last one is P6X58D Premium and I am satisfied with their quality. But now days are different.

Now we need to think seven times before buying an Asus laptop.

Having every third ASUS laptop DIFFECTIVE is too much.

pcbzick.
