For me, I want the 15 inch models. HP is never an option because they lost me over their inability to correct product flaws. More at http://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/laptop-buying-advice/#post-da7ca992-025a-4773-9086-f1d443e405ef

There is always something about today's PCs that folk complain about. For me I get by just fine but then again I don't use the touchpad. I use a mouse.

The office supplied a 16GB RAM y510p and at 2 years the keyboard wear meant a new 50 buck fix for that. While the office slipped in the new keyboard they changed out the HDD for a SSD. This thing is good as new now. I worry about folk that don't accept there can be some minor repair over the years.
