Hi again, im sorry to bother you all again but i have another question: As im going to get a new laptop and im ultra cautious i was wondering if there are any 'traits' with certain brands of laptops? ie: Im sure someone once told me on here that a particular brand always comes shipped with bloatware/crap software that isn't really essential etc etc. Could anyone please clarify this and give me their opinion?
Just so you know, the laptops im looking at are a Medion, an Acer and a Sony Vaio.
Ps- i had a go on a friend's sony vaio last week and it seemed packed full of various sony programmes!

Do a forum search for problems with each make and then you'll know what to avoid.
