    OT: Recommend an online vendor of laptops aside from Dell?

    Level 7
      Can anyone recommend an online vendor of laptops aside from Dell? Good
      product, good service, good prices?

      I have nothing against Dell, but they currently have a delay in shipping the
      laptop we want.

      Thanks very much in advance,

            Have you bought from them, Murray? Were you happy with everything?

              Have not, but have taken a good look at their product. It's pretty rugged.
              They make the ThinkPad, you know?

                Right, ok.. I'm "customizing" a ThinkPad right now. :-) Thanks for the
                recommendation.

                  I'm fairly happy with my Toshiba. Nice and lightweight, good price.

                    I used to have a Dell which I loved. It got nicked. I was in a hurry and bought
                    a Toshiba A 200 which was not cheap and have regretted it ever since:
                    it is much noisier than the Dell was and worst of all: connectors for usb stuff
                    ánd network cable are not at the back as with the Dell, but on the side which
                    means I bump into things all the time while using the mouse. The next time I
                    buy a laptop I will make sure all connections are at the back.

                      I've seen *lots* of old Toshiba Satellites around that are still running perfectly. A friend of mine had one that he dropped on several occasions (total klutz), and it never flinched.

                        Thanks, all. I'm specifically looking to buy a laptop online, if you have
                        any experience with that with Toshiba.

                              You could always use a company like CDW to get HP or Lenovo or any other brand for that matter. Sometimes the turnaround from them is better than the companies direct especially if you need custom configurations.

                                Absolutely and with some of these tech product sites you get extra
                                good service, free shipping, etc.
