Computer Brands


#1

Of course there are the popular ones like Dell, HP/Compaq, etc. but does anyone know of the lesser known brands that generally focus on better components?

I know of Alienware as well, but in the past people have mentioned at least a couple of other places that I can’t remember at all now. One of them had desktops and laptops ranging up to $8k or so. That’s well out of my budget, but they also had lower priced options.

Of course, if you’re focussing on better components, the best way to go is to assemble your own computer.

my wife and I have laptops that we bought directly from Fujitsu that we’ve been pleased with. Fujitsu is primarily known for making computer components for other manufacturers, but their own systems seem nice too. And some of the super small laptops are dang sexy.

there’s a company out of Rochester NY that makes computers, www.microworx.com. they have OUTSTANDING customer service and make some darn good computers too. not sure if they ship computers or not, but i know you can go to their site and customize one. might only be for pick up though. check them out if you get a chance.

I apologize for invading your forum up front, but feel this is worth while and will only take 15 seconds away from a chat.
