New computer? Tough decision.

I am going to buy a new computer and, I chose about 5 computers and I just wanted an expert's opinion on this and since you guys are like Computer Geeks (which is a good thing) I thought you guys could help me with this. If you guys don't mind, could you tell me the top 3?

Go with the HP. Have had two HP laptops over the past eleven years and neither one give me any real problems. I bought them because they could stand up to being packed around on the back of pack horses. Use them when doing photo work out in the mountains and wilderness's through the United States.

The other two options would be...?

I can give you an opinion. But it will not be worth very much because I do not own any of them. It is also a matter of budget and whether you want portability or rather a bigger screen.

In laptops, I have two Gateways, one HP and one Sony. The Gateways gave me no trouble, the HP ran very hot until I replaced the HDD with an SSD, the $1300 Sony runs very well but makes noises.

The next laptop I buy will probably be a Toshiba (because Gateway is with crummy Acer now). Dell would not be on my shopping list because I made a very bad experience with my Dell desktop - looks nice outside, junk inside.

That's all I can tell you based on my experience. If the answer were simple, you would know it already.

So you say...
1. HP
2. Toshiba and ultimately
3. Dell

Is that right? By the way, thanks for posting.

If it were me I would normally go for the biggest screen but the one thing I noticed out of your choices is that only the 13 inch Toshiba has native USB3.0 and for a new laptop that should be a big positive with more and more USB3 goodies becoming available everyday now.
