My opinion on reliability is, it doesn't matter if say a Lenovo has a 3% fail-rate over 3 years if you're out of warranty and part of that 3%. Much rather count on warranty coverage unless it's a just a toy that you tinker with more than you use as a tool; ghetto-rigging cooling solutions with copper shims and whatnot.
i dont like the way that the acer looks anyways.
As far as what im looking for that Sony right now leads my pick for a balance of performance and lightweight
so i guess to break it down that sony
15.6" (Samsung NP700Z5A-S03US)
It seems like the next step up would be
def. dont want anything heavier then the third one (it was the HP Envy) and nothing slower than the first one (the Sony)Edited by Blindsay - 3/1/12 at 9:11am
