1) Sony makes great laptops
2) There wasn't half as much junkware on it than my friends Dell/HP/Toshiba laptops.
3) No they didn't offer to take it off, they did offer me Norton anti-virus and to install it for free... but I'm not stupid.


I had an HP before my Sony laptop, the mother board fried it self within a year. I mean, it got replaced by Best Buy it was so bad. Now, if you are not familiar with Best Buy's lemon policy it has to have five things go wrong with it hardware wise. This is what happened to mine:
1. HDD died
2. Onboard graphics fried
3. Screen died
4. HDD died
5. Motherboard fried it self


I've own my Sony since March 2005, and not a SINGLE thing has gone wrong with it. Now Toshiba has some decent laptops, but any one who buys a Dell or HP is a moron. Acer I've seen some great ones and some flop.

Dell tends to build their computers out of old (hence forth cheap) parts. Combining this with the fact some of their parts you have to get from Dell, I hate them. We tried to upgrade one of my friend's Dell desktops in 2005 or so, three years old, fucker had RDram in it. Not even Dell had any, because it wasn't made any more.


Me and my friends have started building our own desktops, but of course we still have to go to a company to get a laptop. While they are seriously out of date, I have two Sony desktops in my house which have only had one issue a piece; their original HDD died. Both of their HDD died around the five year mark, but past that they still run and one is from 2001 and the other from 2003.


I don't mind dropping $2k on a computer that is going to be running 8 years later.

LFD - tbh the quality of a laptop isn't clearly defined by just brand. I've heard conflicting things about nearly every single laptop company out there. I've never had an HP laptop so Ican't really say much, but in my experience Sonys seem to be particularly good, but VERY expensive. Also, if you do your research you'll find that apple have pretty much ripped off sony for the past 7 or 8 years in terms of design.

But what I've heard about Dell is weird - you say they suck, and a few years ago I would have agreed with you (and still do when it comes to desktops) but a lot of the laptops I've heard some very good reviews about, and they're pretty reasonably priced. Toshiba's on the other hand, in my experience have been cheap in every aspect, especially there satellite laptops. However you say you've had some decent ones, and I'm not gonna doubt what you're saying, but it's more an indication that you really can't judge laptops just on brand alone. It's a bit of a weird thing.

Tough choices
1) Do nothing special
2) Go to a friends party where I may be literally the only straight guy there. Though their will be plenty of straight women...


Edit:
MoP, I usually find $2000+ laptops from Dell are good. In other words, their higher stuff. Though I see no point in supporting Dell if I'm already paying enough to buy a Sony. Dell's customer service is "#1", but that is only because every one needs support for their Dells. One of my poor friends waited for 7 hours total before getting a service rep who told him to reformat his computer.

AFA Dell. I have a Dell notebook,Desktop, And 37" LCD tv/monitor. Had a prob. with the notebook 3 years ago. OS died and had to reformat/ update to Vista. 1 problem with the desktop after it goes to sleep it won't come off the idle system thing when it wakes up. Just updated to windows 7 we will see if that helps.

Only bad thing is that last time I went to one of his parties they had a bunch of bitches beer. He gave me a friggin wine cooler, I chugged it, and got a headache more than I got any hint of a buzz.

If I wasn't broke I'd bring real alcohol... make some Liquid Cocaine and have them all flat on their asses by the end of the night.

1) I know it is strange, but chicks who are 6 foot tall and 100 pounds... just don't do it for me.

2) The last one went on and on about how she was saving herself for marriage. Strange enough, 6 months later, she got married... thankfully not to me.

3) Models have the personality of a tic-tac

My friend who is throwing the party... we knew was gay since like 6th grade. We generally teased him a little, but said "we don't care if you are gay." Sophomore year of HS he stopped hanging out with us. Last week of HS (Senior year) he came out, and now talks to me and our group of friends again claiming he stopped talking to us because we were right.


Go figure... he use to be up tight, now he's a really chill guy.

Ooooh, saving for marriage = religious nutter. Don't bother with religious nutters no matter how cute they are, the worst people I know are religious, and the nicest, friendliest and most dependable ones are atheist or simply don't care

Word up Lod. 2 hours until I hit up the pub and 2 parties as a Smurf, just because. This Morphsuit is proving quite handy.

Edit: Theory buffs, explain to me how to make an A minor 7th chord in the key of C major. All I find is that a minor 7th is 1, 3b, 5, 7b. Though the video I'm watching the guy clearly plays A minor 7th as A, C#, and G# to make the chord.
