Looking for a family laptop.

Without bias opinion I'm looking for help on chosing a laptop brand. Personally I only ever use desktop, however my family need a new laptop. I don't want some shit Chinese brand laptop. I'm fully aware most if not all laptops are produced in China. However I want a DECENT laptop brand that won't run like shit and is quite reputable. Thank you.

Its all dependent on the model. there are companies that make great stuff and sh#t stuff.

Apple has good Build quality, but is expensive.

Dell has some good ones, and so does HP.

even apple, hp, lenovo, dell or whichever company in the laptop space makes good and bad laptops. all have made at least one design mistake. look into reviews and don't ask for one brand. it just doesn't work that way.

most of apple's laptops are fine, except for the i9 MB pro (all i9 laptops that are thinner than 3 inches throttle) and the MP air which was fine when it came out but needs a refresh.

good luck getting that

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

No brand is good, every brand has good and crap models

Where are you from? Budget? Usage? Any preference on weight, display size and battery life?

My Desktop specs:

except for the butterfly keyboard, apple's BC is pretty good. I've used several apple devices, my dad has a 2013 macbook pro and it still works pretty well.

I personally use Toshiba and I can tell you its the best so far. Sometimes brands can be misleading my friend. Check the features and when buying you can also make an in-depth research on the same. They come with warranty, if it spoils then return it.
