    My mom's office switched to Dell laptops this year and they've had problems with almost all of them. Esp. quickly dying batteries. My brother-in-law hated his, and it died after two years.

    I've never heard anything wonderful about Dells, only bad--I know I'll never buy one.

    Do not buy a HP laptop. They are ansolutely horrid. The fans are placed in the worse places, so they over heat constantly. My mother worked for HP and was cosntantly having to get her company laptop replaced because it would die so fastly. The power connections are also poor and easily damaged. HP laptops are simply bad news.

    The biggest problem with laptops batteries is that most people use laptops like desktops. A laptop cannot just be plugged in constantly. The battery needs to be used actively, otherwise it will die quickly.

    See this is what confuses me....when I was searching for a desktop half the people said "stay away from Dell" and half said "stay away from HP"

    I know from experience, I'm staying away from Gateway.....it's just what every one experiences I guess

    I think it is all dumb luck. People have a much more specific use for their computers than what computer companies usually sell. Unless you stumble into that one combo that really works well for you, issues arise.

    I would also stay away from dell!!!
    I had 3 and everyone of them sucked big time. my sister has 2 and both hers are not that old. and her new Dell laptops has big time issues.
    Some have good luck some not so good. I would never own one again!
    I have a gateway, love it, have never had one days problem with it and its 3 years old. its still fast and in perfect working order. I am getting a new computer this coming year, My daughter will have mine.
