    Why not get a BestBuy extended warranty, or one directly from Toshiba?

    I don't think anyone here has used Squaretrade for warranties...I didn't even know they did them.

    How long of a warranty were you looking to get? Extended warranties from anyone other than the manufacturer tend not to be worth it, and even with those I tend not to buy more than 3 years.

    They both are really similar but if I had to choose I'll go with Asus since it has a led screen.

    BZZZT!!!

    You're thinking Thinkpads. We're not talking Thinkpads, we're talking consumer junk (well, relative junk). In that sense, a Toshiba should be just as reliable because of the Tecra.

    Bottom line: most consumer notebooks are going to be fairly close in reliability. There's no way the G550 is going to be as reliable as a Thinkpad. In fact, I bet the Toshiba lasts a bit longer.

    Of course, anyone looking for a laptop that will last 3 years with no repairs should be looking at business-line laptops. Thinkpads, Probooks, Elitebooks, Latitudes, and Tecras, primarily (and the Tecras are definitely last on that list).

    I've run through at least 2 Toshibas in 4 years, and finally just left for one of the new Gateway models. Toshiba's are low quality laptops. Stick with Asus if the prices/specs are the same.

    @leetxy I deleted your other thread. Do not make 2 threads on the exact same topic.

    Studies show that Toshbia and Asus are the top two manufacturers for relaibility: link.

    So if Toshiba's are low-quality, then Asus must be on a par and everyone else must be even worse.
