The last time I checked, Consumer Reports ranked Lenovo on top. We use
The main thing is to standardize.
I recently needed a new keyboard due to water damage. It only cost $25
from Lenovo. It was easy to replace, also. Note that lenovo/IBM has a
very complete site and repair manual. I have not been happy in that
regard with Dell or Gateway or Acer.

Subject: Re: Laptop purchases
We bought our first HP lap tops this summer. Overall good experience
so far but not long range enough to count. We sent one out of 5 back
because it was not charging correctly.
Previously had been buying Dells which/are were quite good and
reliable. However, bought 8 more a couple of years back. Had a 50%
failure rate and Dell expects you to pretty much dismantle the whole
thing before they will let you return them for repairs.
That pretty much did it for Dell. We don't even get quotes from them
