I have had a Lenovo all in one desktop for nearly two years and it has not been the best, after more problems, I have decided to replace it

with a laptop. budget about 15.000 Baht, not interested in gaming, just normal use.

Would obviously want a make with a big screen.

Any recommendations? Except of course Lenovo.

I'm sure that you were advised against an AIO prior to the time of purchase. 

 

What problems are you having with it?

Not if he wants a large screen laptop. No new 17.3" screens in his price range.

 

So he'll be dropping down considerably when it comes to screen size.

 

No one here listens anyway...

Late last year it started freezing up in all sorts of ways and the local computer shop fixed it, it was fine until now, I took it back, he said he fixed it again, but when I brought it home it was just as bad. I will never trust Lenovo again.

I don't remember being advised against it, but one poster, I think it was Jingthing, recommended it.

Got three Lenovo laptops right now ranging in age from approx 5 years old to only a few months....all three work like a charm...have had no problems.  Latest addition is their P53 laptop (a high end model) which I got a few months ago when on sale.

I only buy laptops so Acer with 17.3" screen and Windows 7 is my favored for home and Toshiba 15.6" for travel both easy to fix.

i don't think you're doing yourself a favour by excluding Lenovo (or any other make that you just had a problem with) from your list ... the problem is not likely to be hardware-related ... open up any laptop and you'll find 90% of the components common to all of them.

 

Neither is it likely to be the hard-to-pin-anyone-down-on-what-they-actually-mean-by  "build quality" , if any major manufacturer consistently built to a lower standard than the others then they would eventually exit the market. Lenovo, HP, Asus et al have been around for a long time with comparable market shares. Brand loyalty is low. You can safely assume they all know how to build a laptop/desktop.

 

imo problems are far more likely to be software related ... "freezing up in all sorts of ways" of course cannot help anyone here diagnose your problem but again imo those symptoms are typically due to for example ... viruses, incompatible virus checkers, a dud update (Windows i assume), out-of-date drivers etc etc etc.

 

If you had been in the position of returning the thing to Lenovo and receiving it back your in a still-dud condition then i'd be the first to agree, add Lenovo to a blacklist on the basis of poor support. But you mention you gave it to a local shop (presumably not a Lenovo agent?) Is it possible they simply failed to identify a software issue entirely unrelated to Lenovo?

 

A bit like getting a dud tank of fuel into your Ford ... if it carks it would it be sensible to never consider a Ford again?

 

Finally, i have no connection with or particular fondness for Lenovo, i actually prefer Asus (the build quality is great!).

 

 

 

Troll alert: don't bother, i am no longer following this thread and yes it is a small font, i want your eyes to hurt.

I took my Lenovo tablet under warranty to their place in Fortune Town, I was told to bring it back in about 5 days as there was no one available to fix it. I would say that is as good a reason as anything not to trust them.

My nearly 14 year old Dell's graphic card is going kaput (nVidia) , last week first sign of video memory failure.

I went to look for some new one at JIB , it was very disappointing . No 17 inch screens . Hardware from 2 -3 years ago . Only lenovo and HP have onsite waranty , which seems to be , a lenovo or HP tech comes to fix it at the JIB store within a week.

The others (asus , acer,..) , you loose it 3 to 4 weeks for a repair ?

Bigger choice on their website but only order.

 

Another thing is , all the keyboards have thai letters on them.

With the corona virus , flying to europe is not an option , to buy a decent one. Can't go to Bangkok ... because of the corona.

And the same sh-t when it needs repair.

Sorry not to have a balcony to jump off from when my Dell croaks.
