it seems u may run lot of softwares on ur notebook..in this case i suggest you go for a performance device...my personnel experience with IBM and dell is quite good...i can say fujitsu,toshiba falls in the second category when it comes to performance wise...although the processor n the memory everything seems the same but ibm gives a better throughput...may be some internal components ;)..
Cost wise dell is qutite competetive too...



My sentiments exactly .. Thumbs up IBM - well dell u actually if don't mind the thickness look at R series of BM .. But im a T-gal .. hurhur

If your budget is tight then Acer, and if money is not a caution then IBM.
BTW, Dell is Acer inside.

IBM all the way

I have owned Dell, HP, Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba and IBM, and I must that the IBM is far superior to all of them. You pay a bit more, but it well worth it. Small things like the stroke of the keyboard, high quality LCD, and a super quiet fan, makes the IBM T40/41/42 a great laptop. Of course, the one I have is issued by my company so an extra couple of hundred dollars is not really an issue, but if you are going to keep the thing for several years, you might as well invest in something that is going to make you happy.

You can never go wrong with IBM. I had 1 dell and 2 IBM X series. Differences are so big that I would not mind paying $500 more for the same Spec. Especially those X series. I use Laptop for travelling and presentation. Most place I go provide projector so X series served my need perfectly even with its small screen.

Thinkpad has been purchased by Chinese company I heard. But as long as the quality stays the same. Who cares right?

I personally own a NEC Laptop - been with me for about coming to 3 years. Its been quite reliable and it has never once broke down on me (except for one virus attack). I like to try out Asus as well although I heard great comments on IBM but due to the fact that I'm a design lover...it kind of puts me off.

That's what I want!

But, having a hard time justifying S$4400 for a new notebook. That said, My old Inspiron 4000 that I a typing on right now has worked flawlessly since it was new (~4 years now). Has been operating for the past 2 years as a desktop replacement without any problems at all. Doubled the Harddrive size, upgraded the ram, OS & added external 17" screen but it has never let me down. Kinda like this Dell.

The company is Lenovo and they have been making IBM laptops in China for years. For the next 5 years it will continue to be IBM brand and management. After that we shall see but Lenovo's problems will be less about quality and more about competing globally. If a well managed company like IBM couldn't make money in the laptop biz, how will a newbie like Lenovo fare?

NEC Notebook

Postby coolvcd.com » Mon, 13 Jun 2005 6:49 pm

I recommend you buy NEC Versa S900.

I've been using it for my online VCD/DVD business. Never troubled me at all since buying it last year. Its the best notebook for an e-commerce entrprenuer.

Why?...because its light, compact and user friendly. Can take it everywhere to run my business. Be it at Starbucks or a Mamak Stall with wifi.

Haha.
