    Default Most reliable laptop brands?

    Which would you say are the most reliable laptop brands?

    I'm looking to buy a laptop for college that will last at least 4 years.

    It depends on how you take care of them I think

    ASUS claims that their notebook is no 1. most durable in the USA on the promotional handbook though

    Would you personally recommend buying an ASUS laptop?

    I'm surprised that everyone (besides kanuk) forgot to mention business-class laptops. Thinkpad X/T/W, Dell Latitude/Precision, HP Probook/Elitebook, and (if you *really really* need durability) Panasonic Toughbooks.

    Business laptops are *much* better built than consumer-class laptops (including Apple and Clevo), come with better warranty support (no BSing on the phone, in-home service, absolutely free replacement parts, and [at least with Lenovo] Americans tech support via IBM [if that's important to you]). Also, they're designed to be stupid easy to maintain yourself, with user-replaceable parts being easy to reach, parts being widely available and usually cheap, and [with Thinkpads] service manuals published freely online.

    For durability, I wouldn't consider anything else. Period. It would help us help you better if you filled out the stick though; we have it for a reason

    Based on my personal experience and what I have observed, the single most reliable predictor of laptop quality is price. Of course there are plenty of pricey laptops that are fragile and unreliable and there are equally many budget laptops that last forever, but I am talking about a general trend here. Business-class laptops are, on average, more expensive than consumer-class ones, and so the former are better on average.

    I have used many different brands over the years, including both business and consumer laptops, and never had any serious issues with any of them. In my view, as long as you know how to properly take care of your laptop, any brand and any model would be fine. Just pick a laptop that provides all (or at least most) of the features that you want.
    Apple PowerBook G4 (1440x960, 5.44 lb)
    Dell Inspiron 7500 (SXGA, 9.43 lb)
    Gateway NX860X (WUXGA, 7.95 lb)
    HP 8740w (WUXGA, 8.07 lb)
    IBM Thinkpad X31 (XGA, 3.63 lb)
    Panasonic Let's Note CF-Y9 (SXGA+, 3.24 lb)
    Sony Vaio SVP13213CXB (FHD, 2.33 lb)
    Sony Vaio VGN-P530CH (1600x768, 1.23 lb)
