All that I happen to know is that a couple of days ago, someone compained
about a screen in one of their laptops. Apart from that, I have seen them
recommended, once at least.
They also sell AMD laptops, units without an operating system (i.e. without
Microsoft OEM's) and I would definitely go for a small(er) company that has
plenty to prove and is thus ambitious. Customer support is not an automated
message and no marketting department is capable of generating so much
uninvited junk mail.
