Has anyone used or is familiar with the Jetta JetBook laptop? If so, what are your comments on it? Considering getting one and is to be comprable to Dell laptops.

Jetta LapTop...

The issue for me has been simple. Many of the smaller notebook vendors just buy a boatload (or container) of Taiwan made laptops and sell them.

Why this is an issue is that some small broken part like a drive door or floppy drive will drive you into a rage when you find out that in 1 year you can't get parts for the machine.

There is a lot of history about this and the story can be read many times about such dispensers of laptops.

Given you can get a nice laptop for 699 to 999USD from makers that really do have service centers, spare parts and more across more than a few countries I'd say that I will not buy such a make.

Is in that next posting where the user is hunting for drivers. No one maker has this wired, but go see if your prospective laptop has a web page of drivers for you to fetch.
