re: Reccomend some laptops to me

It's partly my fault as I did not get the extended warranty, BUT I expected it to last longer than a year. Literally 12.5 months after purchase is when I started having major issues and they agreed my machine is a "lemon" (their words), and since it was two weeks out of warranty, they said "sorry, there's nothing we can do".

My only recourse is to just never buy Toshiba again.

Asus. Had mine for six months now, a G74, and it is a champ. Much better than the HP's and Dell's I've had.

re: Reccomend some laptops to me
If I might freeride upon this thread, I've got an old laptop and am looking into getting a new one with Windows 8.

Would one like this be a good idea?
New Asus S56CA-DH51 15.6" i5-3317U 6GB 750GB HDD + 24GB SSD Windows 8 Ultrabook for $668.

BilJ -You might be able to save a little money other places, but buying through Apple has 12+ months no interest financing and I like the idea of me keeping my money as long as possible any time I can.

is the retina worth paying extra for on pro?


I love the retina display on my iPad but don't need it on my MacBook Pro (17"). It's 1920 X 1080 (or 1200 too lazy to look it up) and the resolution and image is great for me. Unless you're doing serious photo work and need the extra resolution I don't see it as a deal maker or breaker.

I've heard good things about the new Visio laptops

Whatever you go with make sure you get an SSD hard drive

I'm mainly concerned about the air lasting as long as MBPs seem to
