    If you want to prove to your friend which television is better just go down to your local electronics store and ask one of the people working there which is better. You could also just search for reviews on google.

    Probably Dell... My Toshiba laptop heats up too much, probably my fault.. but still, it's melted a bit too :( I think I need a new one.

    Never actually tried Dell, but I've heard that it's better quality.

    I would say Toshiba, but it is just an opinion so it will vary depending on who you ask.

    Dells computers are just dirty cheap at times, so for value for money vs performance dell is genreally better.

    i'd go with toshiba

    my friend's laptop is like 9 years old and it's still up to date

    edit: wait what's he talking about?

    i assumed laptops cause i'm buying a laptop in a couple of days and been researching them and what not

    and i personally decided to go with toshiba
     
  7. IMO dell.

    online they have the dell outlet center where you can get great deals on refurbs. thats where i got my insprion b130. they have a feature where you can custome make your laptop/desktop so you can stay within your budget (if you had one that is)

    only bad thing about dell is that dell is compatable with DELL PARTS ONLY!!! so if you find something youd like to use inside your dell, yeah good luck getting it to work! esp the printers....dell printer ink is a rip off! my bfs dad has one and its more trouble for what its worth. im happy with my HP photo printer with cheap-o ink

    toshiba isnt that bad either dont get me wrong. sometimes circut city has great deals on them. i remember on black friday, they were giving away toshiba laptops for 200$ after mail in rebates! who can pass up a deal with that?

    all in all it really depends on how you use your computer. my laptop is my movie laptop so of course i download like crazy. if its strictly for school, you dont need a high tech fancy computer. if its for gamming, youll need a faster computer ect.

    but bottom line? DELL FTW

    Why does everyone here like Dells so much? I don't actually know anyone that likes them. My brother used to work for Dell and him and all his friends that work there always say how shitty they are. I've never owned either, but I like Toshiba's for some reason. I've almost bought one multiple times.
     
  10. i dont necessarily favor dell over any brand. i just like the fact that dell has cheap computer deals and whatnot. for me, the brand isnt that important. id get a gateway, a toshiba, an HP, even a mac (i used to have a macintosh growing up before i upgraded to IBM and then got stuck on windows).

    i also like dell because theyve replaced my computer parts like 100000 times lol. im glad i paid for the extended warenty but a little depressed i didnt upgrade it to "accidental damage" only hardware issues. so where dell has fixed my motherboard and Harddrive, they cant fix the LCD cracked screen and wanted to charge me 200$ for the damn thing! :( now i have a laptop thats a ghetto desk top haha. yes i detached the LCD screen from the computer and pluged an old CRT monitor in the VGA input lol. works just peachy keen for me lol.

    my co-worker told me multiple reasons not to buy a dell

    but i kinda tooned him out cause he was talking to me while i was changing

    however

    my brother's friend who is a computer god
    (he builds his own comps as a hobby...has like 5 now...?)

    said dell is the best for gaming, he said if iw atned to play cs:S and WoW
    than i should go with a dell

    but my friend has a toshiba that's pretty old and he's satisfied with it

    ...idn i think they're both good
    which different qualities

    kinda like comparing a console to another you know?

    i have like 5 or 6 dells as well, had no troubles, had some toshiba laptops as well and the lasted a year or two but then the circuit board frys.
