Laptop as desktop replacement

This journal recommends the Tiny C825 as the best sub-£1000 model in this category. It seems a good buy (maybe too good?) but I've heard Tiny suffers from poor reliability and build quality. The one year warranty scares me a bit too!

My PC and laptop are Dell models-which I have been happy with-but the features available for the same price from Dell don't stand comparison with the Tiny, so perhaps it's time for a change?

(A) Is there another laptop with a similar price and set of features that I might consider?

(B) Is the Tiny worth considering?

All advice gratfully recieved.

Cheers.

Sorry, as you spoke of a desktop replacement, I concluded it should be a power notebook. I see the Tiny is listed in the budget range.

(A) Is there another laptop with a similar price and set of features that I might consider? Dell seems a lot more expensive for the comparable spec.

(B) Is the Tiny worth considering?
