My older laptop is an Acer ter-600. It's not stock. I changed the hard disk from 11GB 4200RPM to 40GB 5400RPM and the 4XCDRW to a spiffy DVD/CDRW that is 24X. It's still a great unit for what I need at times. Added a Wifi card to it's kit. Yes, the unit's CDRW failed in month 3. Acer offered me 2 options, give me a drive for me to install or ship it back and forth. I replaced the drive myself and that's all that ever happened.
The office is moving to 64-bit capables. We have a pair (soon more?) of the Compaq r3000s. Very nice desktop replacements. The office is full of Dell. There is a failure here and there, but 99% of the time it could be the user.
Can any one tell me what model and make they perfer and why??...See i'm trying to decide what make and model is best for me...i read about so many repairs and returns that i would like to see what every one has to say..
