APPLE is a good "brand." Your question was to the "brand" and not about the laptop you were looking at.
They do make a lot of models and some are made better than others. If you look at their 300 buck model then you could come away thinking they make junk. Or you could look at there ROG models and think otherwise.
Don't confuse a good "brand" with good "products."
I'm looking to get a new laptop and I have been eyeing some of the ASUS computers. I mainly just surf the net and save pictures/music to my computer. I don't game and watch very few movies on it. Is the ASUS brand a good brand?
