I have purchased many laptops and when a subpar laptop is purchased, it is really disappointing, not to mention that it is also a waste of money. I’ve tried Toshiba, HP, Gateway and Sony to name a few manufacturers. However, I was and still am most pleased with Lenovo branded laptops. Even though it is relatively new, the best laptop I ever owned is a Lenovo Y560P. It runs on an Intel i7 Sandy Bridge processor, AMD Radeon 6570M Graphics card, and Windows 7 Home Premium. It even comes with integrated JBL speakers.
My best laptop is superb with its sleek look and touch functions. My previous best laptop I ever owned was also a Lenovo. Although it was mainly used for business, it performed better than some laptops outfitted specifically for multimedia. I believe Lenovo laptops also should be noted for quality and durability. My best laptops, both old and new, have lasted for extremely long durations even though technology is improving at exponentially high rates. I, myself, have never had any problems with Lenovo laptops. They never tended to slow down in productivity after prolonged use unlike many other laptops with usually overheat with strenuous work.
These laptops are also physically capable as well. I remember when the child of a friend of mine accidentally shot one his air soft guns at the back of my laptop. While air soft guns are not lethal, they do have quite the amount of force in each pellet. Unexpectedly, the shot did not damage the HD display at all, except for a small indent on the cover.
While the aesthetics of a computer contribute to what makes a laptop the best laptop ever owned, performance is another major aspect. Although performance variations depend on system specifications, laptop makers still play a role. This is why my best laptop can satisfy my usage desires better than, say, its Samsung or Dell counterpart. Having eight cores, it can multitask effectively without lag time and screen freezes.
Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to gauge the efficiency of a laptop at a store of any kind without actually using it for a period of time. So, price and value are usually factors that determine whether or not I buy a laptop. My laptop was definitely the best deal at the time. It can be classified in the same group as Alienware laptops, but costs substantially less and with more useful features. I don’t insinuate Alienware is useless, for they make outstanding PCs, but what makes my Lenovo laptop the best one I ever owned is a combination of style, performance, and value.
