Re: which laptop

The one that offers repair in your office in one day in case it goes south. You wouldn't like it if you had to sent it to a repair center and wait a month before it comes back, as is not unusual with customer grade laptops.

I'm certain Dell has such for business customers (it's not free, of course) in most countries. I don't know about Lenoo and Toshiba where you live.

I've read too many complaints where folk depend on a laptop but didn't plan for the week or so repair cycles. You may want to check out the business models.

I guess i hav to do more research on realiable business models so i don't end up with regrets. Which is the most reliable laptop brand if i may ask?

To date, not one laptop would be something I can rely on. That is, it is possible for even the best machine to have a failure.

I'll consider some Dell laptops. Although of late i have read a number of negative reviews related to Dell laptops but i'll be thorough on the research.
