Actually I think HP purchased Compaq for about 25 billion in stock if I remember correctly. (Not that this really matters in this thread)

The look and feel of notebooks are an important part of deciding what to buy, at least for me. Heck, I spend hours roaming around Fry's Electronics near where I live without buying anything just to check out all the cool stuff!

I personally just look for the best Price/value and then compare the features that are going to best suit what I need it for. I personally have a Dell Vostro because when I bought it it had everything I wanted in a laptop and offered the best price for the specs I wanted.

Are you trying to buy a new laptop now and are looking for the best one? If so what do you use it for and what features are you looking for?

Apple makes decent computers, but I don't care for the OS, and the price is killer.

I get this question every single day at work. I always tell customers that all the major brands are good quality, what matters more is what specs the particular computer has and if it would meet their needs. But if I had a choice, I'd get a Gateway or HP laptop.

I love my HP. I've ranted about how good it is in BestBuy and here where I work. I think the model I have is the cat's meow. 2 years old and still just a purring along.
