As far as laptops, Asus all the way.

PD: I allways have a feeling that ASUS is gonna pull out a Volkswagen any given sunday, I've had and have their productis since ages, yet you can't trust them. but they still appeal me and I buy them...

What kind of bullshit OS is Windows 10? I'm fine with them wanting to spy on my pron stash, but the other issues?

Just recently windows update deleted some software without even asking or notifying me. And deleted some DLL-files causing other software to not work. WTF is that about?

If that wasn't enough today the taskbar stopped working. The start menu, volume control etc didn't work. Checked Microsoft for an official fix, found a "solution" that would supposedly fix the issue. Obviously that didn't work... :rollani:

Tried a few other fixes by users who had experienced the same problem until finally I found a really odd one that worked for some reason. Restart, don't log in, shut down while holding down shift and then start again. And hey presto! Suddenly this piece of crap OS is back to normal.

I am disappoint!

I have it on my office laptop and it works pretty much as Windows has always worked, ever since 95 came out (i.e. like crap).

Most of the spy activities you can turn off. But of course you don't really know if there isn't some spying going on anyway. But that's Windows for you. You never know. If you handle sensitive data, don't use Windows.

The last good Windows version was 3.1 and after that it's all gone downhill.

What I find most annoying about Windows is that it changes back user settings to its default value. That is if you can manually change settings at all.

If you change the wifi settings to a specific IP range, the next time you start your system it will have changed it back to 'automatic'.

And if you use a VPN, you get a DNS leak because you cannot change the way that Windows connects in the Home version. That feature is only available in the Enterprise version.

I'm curious to hear about Lenovo as well since I haven't ran into many owners of that brand.

In regard to Dell, they're usually well-built, the major issue is weaker battery life. I don't have Asus, I do have Acer (Aspire) and I recommend staying away from them only because the plastic body build warps after a few years (the hinges in some models like mine are weaker). So physically weak compared to some other laptops. Asus from what I've heard and seen from friends is just a more better built Acer. The bodies and hinges are usually built better, the battery lives are usually fair. Haven't heard any complaints yet.

Lenovo is the world's largest PC vendor and is a continuation of IBM's PC department after they bought it out.

In the laptop/notebook segment they're first or second, in the corporate world alone their ThinkPad and X1 Carbon models probably have the biggest market share (if not, a massive slice).

Surprised you haven't run into more owners ...

But in any case, you can't typecast a brand with much, as build quality and general performance differs greatly between models and different price points. Apple and Microsoft are the obvious exemptions to that, as they work within certain price points and deliver a known level of quality at that level.

Acer for example is hit and miss, more so since having taken over Gateway in the budget segment of the market. ASUS is generally cheap Taiwanese/Chinese shit with terrible aftermarket support, but from time to time come up with products that push the boundaries of the price point they sit in such as the recent Zenbooks. Dell offer good aftermarket support, aiming for the small-medium business segment.

But, if you know what you're looking for, laptops of a similar level of quality & performance, tend to sit within a similar price bracket. Sometimes you find one sits a bracket below, but then you have some small things to consider (i.e., the aforementioned Zenbook doesn't seem to have the build quality of a MacBook Pro or Dell XPS, but undercuts them both on price).

I have an Asus laptop that is solid as a rock. Just last week I opened my bag to get my keys and the laptop fell out and hit the street hard. I was sure it would be smashed to bits, but it still works like a charm.

Thanks a lot Microsoft, I'm sure you know better than I which software I need. Work related software? Nah, who needs that? E-mail client? Clearly redundant.

I'm hit with this shit too.

Can't open images, volume settings are fvcked, can't even ctrl-alt-delete.

Your previous fix didn't work so give me a step-by-step guide which does, failing which you can expect a lawsuit for punitive damages.

Everyone is moving to the cloud for cost savings and losing control and customisability as a consequence. If there were a way to do it cheaper, on-premises, many in the SMB sector would consider it.
