Also would avoid advent. The HP you found is more than likley a decent laptop. Compaq can be good, mines reliable but their cases are fkin shit especially with an AMD cpu, overheats constantly. Not that great for video, copes with photoshop and dreamweaver well thats as far as ive pushed it tbf.

My acer laptop has been great, my friends on the other hand has not.

I think its a bit hit and miss, as with most manufacturers tbh.

My girl friends brothers Acer has lasted for over 5 years with near every day use!
