The Official "Worst Laptop I Have Ever Seen!" Thread o.O

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I thought it would be fun for us to post some of the worst laptops we have ever seen. I came across this one while browsing ebay. This looks to be a DIY paint modification gone horribly wrong. A little wear and tear, but seems to be in good working order...tongue.gif

I inherited a Toshiba laptop that's ~1 year old. It has an e-300 APU, and it is PAINFULLY SLOW to the point of being unusable when just attempting to browse the web. I upgraded it to 8gb ram and installed an ssd, and its STILL UNUSABLE. Worst laptop ever.

-Any pre-2013 Atom netbooks (especially the ones from late 2000s).

-This horribly unbalanced $1300 Asus laptop: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-A53SD-TS71-750GB-NVIDIA-Laptop/dp/B0072VQHM0

Intel Core i7-2670QM 2.2GHz Quad Core
NVIDIA GeForce GT 610M 2GB Graphics

FYI, the i7's HD4000 IGP is actually better than the GT 610M (maybe except for the graphic driver department)... FAIL...

My HP pavilion DV6-6173CL. Full of useless bloatware, and it's super slow even with an i7 2630QM, 6770m and 8GB of ram. Lags just browsing the web.
And the noise and overheating, and cheap build quality, just adds on to the mountain of crap.

Yeah... I completely reformatted my laptop after some junk trial games (such as Marriage in Manhattan) broke the registry upon uninstall. I was not happy when MS Paint couldn't save any files without a time-consuming workaround or when Steam couldn't connect.

Plus, a lot ASUS's utilities were useless, such as a login system that uses the webcam instead of password, but could be fooled by a photo of you. Or a display calibration software that duplicates AMD's CCC calibration. Or a BIOS flash software that is buggy at best.

Junior year of college, friend came over with a week old HP laptop. I think it was one of the evo series laptops, I think its evo. The laptop died in less than a week. HDD was fine, motherboard failure in a week. It was great!

I have a laptop, it works slow, but still do the job with external keyboard (because fans is just under the left part of it's keyboard, overheat as hell, i literally burned my hand once) screen is not working properly so 20'' screen and logitech mouse.

Comes handy in living room when i'm too lazy to go my room.

I'm keeping it as a reminder of the biggest mistake in my life; buying a laptop.
