I have 2 Toshiba and an Acer. No problems with any, touch wood.

Oh, that's not quite true. The Acer was just over 2 years old when the CPU went. Thankfully, I had purchased an Extended Warranty. The CPU was replaced - took 3 months -  and no probs since.

Toshiba's were only purchased last year, so don't expect any trouble until next year.

Am going with a Toshiba or ASUS Netbook when the new models are relased, next month.

A computer chap says laptops are only built to last 2 years and that by that time techies consider them old.  :-\

My Acer, now 5 years old continues to plod on! Had a new hard disk two years ago, after I had dropped the machine, nothing else except its age is starting to show. W7 soon.
