Which Laptop 2 Buy

  The Brigadier 15:31 25 Dec 2006

OK i have £600 excluding VAT to buy a laptop with. I'm registered for VAT so can offset this when i buy one. Do i go for Dell or Novatech or A.N.Other?

Any views or ideas?
Cheers in advance & merry Christmas to you all:)

Custom built to your spec. Excellent buy.

No real experience of either (tho' I do have a c****y Dell PDA), but Novatech seem to to have a better reputation than Dell on most relevant forums

Where can i find out about Asus custom built laptops? Nothing on the Asus site, unless i'm looking in the wrong place?

There are 6 'custom builders' in North America – 4 in US, 2 in Canada. Also 2 in Australia. Most will not handle foreign orders. I obtained my Asus Z71Va from

They are at Diamond Bar, California. Richard is a wizard. Cost to me here in New Zealand, including freight and NZ taxes, was comparable to that for a "similar" machine bought in Auckland. Get on to the website and work it out...
PS: I have no connection with them other than as an occasional customer.
