I have had my Toshiba notebook for over a year now and it has never crashed on me. I use it for just about everything. My husband games on it and even my five year old son uses it for his learning games. Most computer types tend to have their systems crash because they are pushing them up to and over the limit. I know, because I work with some everyday. As for customer service, I have only had to call them once since I havn't had any problems with the notebook. They were a little slow in getting to me (on hold quite a while), but once there, they were very helpful. I might be in the minority, but I say go Toshiba!
I am looking at maybe getting a Toshiba Qosmio G25-AV513
However, I have had several computerishtype friends tell me that a Toshiba is a bad idea, that they tend to crash a lot.
Is this true, or only if you're doing stupid stuff on it? I'll be doing mainly internet, mild gaming, and music. It's for college. I just want a bombproof laptop that will NOT be crashing/dying/giving me tons of trouble when I really don't have the time or patience for it. What do you guys say?
And also...how is customer service for Toshiba? Which laptop maker has the best customer service? It'd be nice if the people didn't have such bad english skills that I couldn't understand them. =(
