PostSubject: Toshiba VS HP   Tue Feb 24, 2009 11:10 am

TOSHIBA:
Toshiba offers a wide range of everyday, business and multimedia laptops.
They all come with a fast track repair service that is simple and easy to use.
The price range starts at a minimum of £200.
The durability of Toshiba laptops are all at an excellent rate.

However...
The designs of some Toshiba laptops are at a fault.
Most Toshiba laptops have an excellent design but watch out for the larger and bulkier Toshiba range.
The optical disk drive comes lose if you use it too much, the hinges are stiff, the fire wire port tends to electrocute you and they just look ugly.

The Toshiba drivers are complete memory hogs and if you find yourself wanting to write C++, C#, Visual Basic, HTML or any other programming language or wanting play games that take up allot of RAM then you might as well throw it out the windows.
The performance is sluggish and tends to cause a slight blip (When I say slight blip I mean complete f*uck up.

HP:
HP is widely known for their high performance, sleek design and fast range of laptops and other devices.
If you own a HP laptop you will know why they are the best but if you don’t, read on.

HP tends to keep performance up because most of their models use DRR2 RAM. (Meaning very fast)
In some of HP's newer models they use DRR3. (Meaning complete pownage!)
The design of HP's laptops are almost flawless, HP also use TruBrite screen technology.

But it's not all good news...

HP's repair service is slow and most HP laptops tend to come with a small hard drive.
HP also tends to use allot of 3rd party software. (E.g. fingerprint readers, ect)

All in all I would go for HP.
With their fast, cheap laptops what could go wrong?

On a final note: Please vote and DO NOT USE THIS AS A GUIDE FOR BUYING LAPTOPS!

After thinking about this for a while, I'd go with Toshiba. I've never owned a HP, but I do know that they're cheap, reliable and very nice computers. Toshiba wins though because of their reliability and I've actually owned one before.

Its just that I've had good experience with Toshiba, and little to none with HP.

Yup, and that shows that the more expensive does not actually mean the better!
