    I know we all love macs here, but what is your favorite PC brand?

    This thread goes for both desktops and laptops.

    HP for servers and workstations. Apple for notebooks and desktops (and workstations).

    I chose Sony. We had a Sony desktop before our Dell desktop and it was nice. I also like their laptops a lot. [for pcs :p ]

    Yeah seriously. Alienware is the best. If I were ever gonna buy a PC it would be an Alienware with 4x Nvidia 7900GTX's in SLI mode! :cool:

    Alienware = Dell. So those who cry "OH NOES! ALI3NWAREZ NOT ON TEH LIST!!!1" can vote for Dell.

    Me, for one, am boycotting this list for a REAL reason. I mean, no Falcon Northwest?!

    ...But since that wasn't an option, I chose Sony.

    Falcon Northwest, Alienware, and Asus should be added. Hell, even add Shuttle. They make PCs as well as cases, no? And they'd be one of the big guns in Asia, which makes up a large chunk of the world, if my geography teacher was correct. ;)

    Anyway, I'll see if the poll choices are added to, and if not, I'll just go with Sony. They may not last as long as IBM and Lenovo laptops, but they balance looks and performance.

    Hmm actually I do like Sony, my T2XP is my favourite thing in the world, but Dell's are just so configurable and the range is so massive that there's almost something for any requirement. They also give whopping business discounts when pushed.

    IBM/Lenovo. Right now I'm on a 7 year old ThinkPad T20 that I got for free, and it's been dropped a few times and it still runs perfectly. No dead pixels, really small for a PC laptop (1.4 inches - small for a pc laptop even in 2006!) and the only problem that I have with it is that it's not a Mac. It runs Windows more reliably than any other Windows computer I've ever used. Too bad I'm to cheap to buy a new battery (the current one lasts for 47 minutes)... I'd rather save for a MacBook! :D

    Apple! ie. none of the above...

    I wouldn't use any machine from any of those options (or anybody else) even if I got it for free... H***, I wouldn't even use them (privately) if I got paid moderately to do so...

    Windows is not an option and most *nixes are just too fiddly...

    Still missing Amiga on the list, though...

    Apple is my favorite Personal Computer brand.

    But if we're talking Non-Apple...I'd have to go with HP, though I don't know about their current machines. But older HP stuff (Especially the 100/200LX palmtop) is pretty good, IMO, and I love their printers.

    I voted "other"...

    I always thought that one of the strengths of the PC was the ability to build one yourself or to have a "boutique" OEM like Flacon Northwest put one together to your specs.

    Joke or serious? Isn't this the company that puts desktop components into notebooks and makes 10 lb behemoths that run at a million degrees and have a battery life of nine minnutes? :rolleyes: Or do I have them confused with someone else?

    I'll vote other because:

    1) I like Apple (laptops).

    2) If I had to get another desktop, I'd build it myself. I like me :D
