New & Used Note-Book
IBM owners say that once you've owned an IBM notebook, you'll
never buy another brand. IBM's notebook prices are competitive
with Dell's. But IBM's notebooks tend to run a little slower and
have a somewhat shorter battery life. On the other hand, IBM's
display quality is exceptional, as is the overall product
quality. IBM sells both new and refurbished computers, the
refurbished ones at greatly discounted prices. When buying an IBM
notebook, be sure to note the type of pointing device used, as
many models use a stick rather than the more popular touchpad.
Many people hate using a stick.
Dell's notebooks are the most popular on the market, noted
primarily for long battery life. And with today's low prices and
Dell's reputation for quality, you can't go wrong with a Dell. If
you're on a tight budget, consider buying a used Dell notebook.
Just click Refurbished Systems on their site's navigation bar, located along the
very top of their home page.
Gateway offers a good selection of quality notebooks.
Performance is on par with IBM's systems, and average battery
life lies midway between IBM's and Dell's. But prices tend to be
a bit higher than both. Plus their reliability record is below
par. So downgraded by two stars.
