    I buy a lot of ASUS stuff. I've had mostly good experiences with them.

    The thinkpad line used to be my favorite, but I seriously love my dell latitude my office gave me. The power is astounding (quad core CPU with 16GB of RAM), the battery life is incredible (6+ hours), it has all the ports I need (USB3, fire wire pcmcia, SD reader, DVD+/-RW, and more), and the 1920x1080 native resolution is amazing.

    It doesn't have a particularly large hard drive (300gb) and it doesn't have HDMI (but has VGA), but otherwise it's the best laptop I've ever had, including the trusty thinkpad t-42 I had in college.

    I use an Asus transformerpad infinity (t700) as my tablet/netbook for meetings, coffee shops, and couch surfing, and I love that as well (though only 1GB of RAM is criminal given the resolution).

    Was that before Gateway stopped being a company in 2007? You need a new laptop.

    My personal laptop is an HP refurbish that was "the most laptop I can buy for under $500" (newegg) that was my criteria, it works well enough for me when I actually want to use my own windows laptop, which these days is about once a year.

    My much more heavily used work laptop is a thinkpad x220 which is an ultraportable. I like that it weighs less than a brick when I strap it to my 45 year old back and start schlepping it between Oakland and San Francisco.

    The thinkpad is also certainly the more powerful computer. I run visual studio, TOAD, AQT, outlook, access, business objects, lync, a VDI (virtual machine) session, IE, firefox and typically some docs open in notepad, excel, etc without problem.

    Being in a tech job and time being at more of a premium than money itself to me I have adopted the "I just want the #&#% thing to work" attitude when it comes to my personal tech gear, so I bought a Mac.

    That's why I don't play PC games anymore. I put the disk in the video game machine and games start playing. The end. I don't need to screw around with drivers and patch versions and IRQ conflicts, I just want to game.

    Though I'll never use a mac. I tried to program on one for a few years and it was always doing something really close to what I told it to do, but never what I actually wanted. If you don't use macs the way they want you to use them, everything starts to fall to pieces (it seems to me anyway). I still tell my parents and grandparents to get them though.

    If you replace M.A.C with S.U.K. you're getting close. Anything with less than a full-size keyboard is questionable.
    Functionality rules and clarity matters; if you can work a little elegance in there, you're stylin'.
    If you can't spell "u", "ur", and "ne1", why would I hire you? 300 baud modem? Forget I mentioned it.

    Looking at some of the splash screens, I see it's a rebranded Asus. It does have the Gateway logos all over it though. I bought it about a year ago from Walmart.

    I love my ThinkPad. Functional, almost indestructible, not a tablet.
