    Acer and Lenovo are 2 of the brand names that I want to avoid, they are famous for cheap stuff...

    Which manufacturer these days isn't known for "cheap stuff?" (yeah, even Apple, although not dollar-wise)

    Dell is much better than Acer, my friend's Acer laptop is dead after only 3 years.

    So was my first Toshiba laptop. My current one is going on four years. You had a point?

    And my first iPhone face cracked the very first time it hit the floor after a drop from my desk (about 36").

    It's all "cheap" these days.

    As far as Dell, I can't count the number of motherboards that quit working I've had to replace for clients (OK, I can, seven out of nine).

    It's better to build your own computer the way you wanted...

    Let me know when you put together a laptop from your own sourced parts.

    As I mentioned, let me know when you do it without "cheap" parts and do it better (and for less expense) than Acer, Toshiba et al, OK?

    Why you tweet on WS8 twice?

    Oh! I see, you are a tweet-counter-pusher. :haha:
