The Top Ten

1
Apple
I could rant about this for days. But in the end, I believe this post is for highest quality computers, not best priced. Apple Computer does make the highest quality computers out there, the are made with aluminum uni-body engineering (one piece of aluminum). They offer SSDs, which are about 4x faster than a traditional hard drive, and they have no moving parts, so they are incredibly reliable. That also comes native on MacBook Airs. That is hard to come by. Also, every component is clearly thought out, and cleverly designed, like the asymmetrical fans. When the blades are positioned symmetrically, it created a single, identifiable frequency. But when the blades are positioned asymmetrically, it spreads the sound over a variety of frequencies, which makes it quieter, and nearly imperceptible to the user. Then there's Thunderbolt connectivity. Developed by Intel, Thunderbolt delivers transfer speeds up to 2x faster than USB 3.0, and up to 20x faster than USB 2.0. Thunderbolt has a whopping 10 Gbps transfer speed. These are just three of the many examples, as to why the Mac is a premium quality computer. Yes, they may cost a lot, but it is actually pretty reasonable compared to the manufacturing difficulties, and quality components that make the Mac.

And that's why I think the Mac is the best computer on the market, and that's just the hardware!
For video or photo editing or any kind of graphic design, or "general use, " Mac is definitely supreme. I'm not even talking about specs (though with any Mac, the specs are great), the operating system is just so clean and easy to work with. Especially iWork, which is Apple's version of Microsoft Office (though Office works on Mac).

I know a lot of people think you're paying for the glowing piece of fruit on the back of the computer when you choose Apple. But I think you're paying for the money that has gone into developing a truly advanced, but yet simple to use operating system. That's why more and more people are switching. Saying that the "software is incompatible" is just plain outdated. And you can't deny that they're beautiful computers designed with top quality hardware and specs. But that's just a bonus.

The best thing you can do is get into an Apple store and get your hands on these machines. In my experience, the people working at Apple are very helpful in getting you the right computer for your needs.
Apple is not only the most advanced music player, tablet (most of us can agree on that), and phone (maybe not so many there) but I would buy every apple product possible if they were just a little bit cheaper.
[Newest]I think apples are really great computers and even though they are really expensive they are totally worth the money! They are really great

2Hewlett-Packard
Best brand out there. Solid computer and not over prices like Macs
Most trusted and innovative brand in computing. It has be founded long before Dell and other PC manufactures. It is still one of the biggest PC manufacturer in the world. I am still using 5 10-year old products of HP and they're still running well. HP also has outstanding Customer Support. GO WITH HP FOR THE BEST VALUE AND INNOVATION!
I've had HP computers all my life and have worked with them at computer stores for over 4 years and its the best selling and most innovative hands down.
[Newest]The best computer brand.

3Dell
My Studio XPS 8100 is a solid performance and entertainment computer.
Dell has amazing prices and a variety of different configurations for their computers. They have the best warranty and dominates the other competition. If your computer ever does break(almost never), then you can use the backup restoration and other stuff to fix it.
dell (alien-ware) has a great perfomance than any other computer
Del computers are incredibly easy to fix if they have some kind of problem. They come with backup image restoration and all kinds of crap incase your computer crashes or whatever
[Newest]Dell is very High Quality and Reliable.

4Asus
Asus. It's really good. Shouldn't be no.6 its better then toshiba and acer.. Have you heard of their E Family? Including Asus EPad Transformer Prime [Tablet], and the E PC's Well they make the best. Don't believe me? Search Asus E PC UX21. Its like the worlds thinnest ultra laptop with a i7 core processor. It makes better stuff too, like the E PC X101, netbook as thin as macbook air, Running MeeGO, and you can put Windows7. They work great, last long, and have great quality, slim&Sleek, thin designs. Love it.
Asus SHOULD be number 1 because when I used to have an asus, it NEVER used to say "not responding" with windows vista home premium or windows 7 enterprise. But, I accidentally updated the bios, so it stopped starting.
They make motherboards for almost all laptops listed above. So their own computer are good and you barely get problems

5Lenovo
Aside from Apple, Lenovo makes some of the best, highest quality hardware in the industry. Tough, durable, thin, light - you name it - all in the same package. Thinkpad keyboards have defined the industry standard, and still do. I, personally, wouldn't consider any other manufacturer when choosing a Windows laptop.

1. Apple / Lenovo (impeccable design, quality, and durability)
3. Sony (excellent design, great quality and durability)
4. Alienware (may not win thinness/quietness/battery life awards, but it is powerful, durable and uses the highest quality components available)
5. Toshiba (may not be perceived as cool/luxurious as the others on this list, but Toshiba is one of the very few Win-PC manufacturers who knows how to make practical, well rounded, well balanced systems. No overkill designs that serve zero practical use, no half-assed features. Chances are, if it is included in the system, it will work well. )

HP, Dell, Acer and ASUS do not belong in the top 5. Why? Well, because these have a rather nasty habit of trading sexy design or a ton of extra, useless features for actual usability. If you're looking for cheapness, by all means, choose one of these. If, however, you consider your computer an extension of yourself - almost like your third hand, do yourself a favor and pick from the absolute best.
really surprised that its not in the top 5. produces excellent computers, depending on your need- there's one for everyone

jimmy12lee

I have several lenovo computers in my business. Preform fairly well. However, we had one laptop that just kept shutting down on us from day one. At first customer suppost was good - they immediately sent out a box to ship it back to fix it. Returned it in about 2 weeks - STILL NOT WORKING. How hard is it to test it to see if it shuts down when it occurs regularly within 10 minutes? Anyways, has been sent back a second time - took almost a month this time and STILL NOT WORKING. I have been on the phone with them several times - on hold times sometimes as much as over an hour. Extremely poor customer service! Couldn't even find the service ticket at times. I had to put in a formal complaint - was then guarenteed by a supervisor that if it didn't work this past time that they would replace it and gave me his direct number. Well, I've been calling that number and leaving messages every day for the past week. I still have a nonfunctional computer and no response from lenovo... Would NEVER buy another lenovo again.
[Newest]They make reliable and fast laptops

6Acer
Have owned and Acer laptop and used it to 110 percent for 5 years before it finally broke down on me. Hardware failure, mostly due to travel though and not to manufacturing or design flaw. GREAT, RELIABLE machine!
Seriously HP has more votes than Acer? Save your money and great a better product that's worth the money.
I have a touch screen acer that rocks!
[Newest]Acer is a beautiful brand for computer base on price and for great less costing productivity

7Sony
I had try and tested sony laptops for a long time now and they don't let me
Down!
Yup Great! VAIO is the way to go if you are looking for a laptop. I will never buy any other brand.
Seriously who said that hp is better than sony do you even know where hp is made in now unlike any other models sony is still manifactured in the same country and is better in making good electronics especially in computers, laptops and wide screen T.V.'s do you know that sony made one of the best gaming consoles today that's why its popular for its unique quality over quantity feature
[Newest]Apple and Sony are of equal

8Alienware
Alienware has never failed me. The quality of the Pc and the built quality is very advanced. Because Alienware is actually a gaming Pc it is very powerful. A lot of people say its over priced. How can they say that when Apple is number 1? I mean have you seen the specs? They aern't worth 2000 dollars. I could get just as a good Pc, if even better for 600$. That is what I have to say about this. Overall I think Alienware is a very good brand when it comes to Pc's.
WHY IS APPLE NUMBER ONE SERIOUSLY! I HAVE OWNED AN ALIENWARE M18X FOR 2 YEARS AND IT STILL KICKS ASS! MY SISTERS MAC IS NOW BROKE AFTER 6 MONTHS AND SHE DOESN'T EVEN USE IT! IF YOU WANT THE BEST PERFORMANCE MACHINE ON THE PLANET GET ALIENWARE!
The best pc brand out there in my opinion, also the most modern and good loking, should be definitely in the top 3.
[Newest]I Hear Alienware is an awesome computer brand for advanced and heavy gamers and will buy a 2500$ one

9Toshiba
Toshiba has been very reliable and I trust the brand. The product qualities are amazing and they have a long battery life which has been a problem for me since I use laptops for a long time. The quality never goes down with that brand. Toshiba products all have a big space to save what you would like which comes in handy if you do most of your work on the computer. It is not over priced, yet it is a splendid brand that has, and never will fail to amaze me with its quality and performance. I personally think it is the best brand out here that you shouldn't compare it to any other ones. When charging, it doesn't take a lot of power and it is fast compared to other laptops. Even though I bought a version that isn't very new, it has never broken down or shut down on its own. The perfect brand for you if you love great screens! Toshiba laptops has lots of gadgets that you can install. You will find that they are very useful! Its settings are simple and is not complicated for users, AND as a added bonus, their designs look modern, new, and quite neat. Of course, laptops are bound to break down sooner or later. Not this one! It's wonderful and very delightful. There is one word to sum it all up! AWESOME! If you are out there trying to find a laptop or a computer for you, choose Toshiba. It will hold you in awe as soon as you touch the mouse. Simply the best brand I have ever used. Really recommended.
Toshiba continues to amaze me with their product quality and performance. I own a 1997 Toshiba laptop that continues to work to this day (2010). Sinse that first purchase, I have bought 2 more laptops from Toshiba, both holding up to my high expectations. Their gaming laptops are truely comparable to desk top gaming computers, while still maintaining a useable battery life and mobile utility. What's more, they are equiped with amazing harman/kardon speakers that blow the doors off of other laptops. I am also a major fan of many of the chase designs (toshiba Qosmio X305).
The performance and reliability is like no other. I have owned a Toshiba laptop for 5 years now and I have never had a single problem with performance or hardware. It is simply a brand of awe.
[Newest]Toshiba's reliable laptop are such as soft, well playing and showing good performance. I trusted on that Brand.

10Samsung
Oh dear, I don't know why sumsung is the 16th it should be among the top five it is better than most of the I love sumsung product it fantastic
Samsung is the best at anything they do even if they open restaurants and pet stores they will be the best.
Samsung sucks. I've had mine for a year and after about 6-8 months of having it, it started to be really slow, and right now it took about 5-10 minutes to get on to this site and it automatically put itself in "Incognito mode" and I can't get out of it. Plus when I click on new tab it goes to this messed up site that I don't even know what it is because I close it before it loads. Samsung should not be in the top ten, that's for sure.
[Newest]This is one of the best computer companies I have seen

The Contenders

11Compaq
I am using compaq desktop computer its very best for gaming and it is a nice computer and it is very easy to use compaq is the best for home and office uses I love compaq
I am using a compaq pc its very easier to use and is service is very good. Whenever my pc is to be fixed I just call the service centre and they are available in just 4 hours
This is the one I use, it is very easy to use. Personally I would rather have a PC than a mac its just a lot simpler to use. I have been using compaq my entire life and I am going to keep it that way!

[Newest]I bought a Compaq brand new and I thought it was find for the 2 years I owned it until my hard drive broke and now need to replace it which is pricy

12IBM
IBM was the best computer desktop I ever Had got 10years out of it. I had major power surge that killed it.. Some guy fall a tree on a major high power line.. I wish I could buy IBM again it was the best..
Unknown by average users, a mythical computer brand. The quality and durability of their products is unmatched.
(Thinkpads were sold to Lenovo)
I my own experience IBM computers are one of the best brands there is and it's a laptop if you are on business

13LG
I love because of its technology and smartness
Amazing I frekin love LG computers

14Gateway
I have a gateway for 2 and a half years and is not the best quality but is very responsive and durable I have use it for gaming and have never let me down every game a play on it run smoothly including dead space in medium graphics
I'm using my new Gateway laptop NV series with an i5 now, and it has been a great laptop for the money. Much better than my older HP desktop it replaced... I have no complaints
I have had one for 4 years and it has always let me down with internet issues. It has been decently reliable for everything else. Also the power button broke, but that might be my fault.
[Newest]The Gateway is pretty good I have one and I had it since 2012

15CyberPower PC
These computers are amazing. They run fast and look amazing. There are some many option to choose from, because they are CUSTOM computers this needs to be higher on the list
Great brand, I love how you can customize computers to fit what you need. Good for gaming also but I have heard cases of them breaking. They look great though and run very fast.
Cyberpower is the best

16Panasonic

17MSI
I bought one last year, a GE70 for video editing, to replace my old and obsolete but still own HP DV7. However, the GE70 failed after a year having Power Issues and short-circuiting itself, the battery and power supply. I don't recommend this if you need a laptop 24/7 computing, processing, encoding, uploading, and do other tasks related to video editing or simply 24/7 computing needs. The motherboard will fail. Also the build quality of the first GE70 was bad. Pure plastic which can be folded easily and maybe that's what caused a bad motherboard. It is a mystery why it failed, but one thing is for sure, I will never buy and MSI again. It was my first and last.
In my opinion MSI laptops are the best out there! Great specs and they are really reliable with an excellent tech support. They handle games very well on highest settings and most models are very appealing by appearance. MSI are the best out there!
This is way better than what people rated it. I don't get it. MSI should be nr.1 Its remarkably one of the best computers brands existing on this date. Apple's computers really do suck donkey balls. They are way too slow and way too over priced.

18Microsoft
The tablet software still feels like it could be improved, but the hardware is good. The Pro's software is better because it can run more applications
Most used brand in the whole world!
Their Surface Tablet are amazing should be #1
[Newest]It's the bests ever

26Gigabyte
It's one of the best but needs to improve on webcam quality...

27Radioactive PC

28eMachines
EMachines are fantastic computers. We have 2 and their going on 6 years from Costco. Never have had a problem, unlike the HP these replaced. We stream movies, music, youtube, etc. To our 42" T.V. and are very happy with the output and quality. EMachines needs to be in the top 10.
EMachines should be in the top 5. It is the most reliable computer I've owned. In 2008, I bought a new computer which was an HP and it didn't even last for more than 2 years. My compaq laptop I bought failed me too. So, I've been using my eMachines computer, which is over 10 years old, until I get another reliable computer.
I have owned eMachines for years. Had other brands that failed. Go with the work horse!

32Origin PC
Amazing place for customizing a gaming pc. Plus they are well known for great costumer support. If you have some money to spend and you want a great PC for gaming, then get an Origin PC. LevelCapGaming even has one.
I Have been using origin genesis for years. And Danya love cats. Danya rocks because he rock. Danya is damn pro. Danya damn pro. Danya Danya Danya. I love cats moose vita at Danya rkcms
Origin PC makes some of the best Gaming computers in the world

The absolute highest grade components on the market, Falcon Northwest offers customized paint jobs using paint normally reserved for exotic cars. When only looking at appearance, FN outshines Apple. When looking at the inside, the contest is like comparing your grandmother's Ford to a new Ferrari.

36OneApple
I have purchased the Oneapple Laptop last month and I am very much satisfied with its performance, specially battery back up and resolution, rest of the functions are user friendly and I recommend others to get OneApple Laptops, Nice, Durable and Cost effective product.

Amazing Computer looks high tech as well I also love the operating system and user friendliness anyone reading VOTE ME NOW!
Good quality hardware. Still working after nine years of heavy usage.

44Amstrad
Amstrad CPC were the best for gaming, serious work, programming. They are so steady, I had three and they still work, while a C64 stopped functioning, my modern stuff failed, the Amstrad CPC still works!

Optimus6128

Lovely machine, I liked it way more than the C64. I had an Amstrad CPC 464 back in the 80's, and I played Fruity Frank everyday. I still have the Amstrad, and I still play Fruity Frank from time to time. GREAT FUN!

45Commodore
Commodore is AWESOME! Especially the awesome Commodore 64! This is definitely what I would vote for
They created the best selling computer of all time. That's not too shabby I think.

46Wipro

47Micromax
Micromax is very good brand

48Ironside Computers
This company is not noticed enough; I would put it in the top 10, if not top 5.

Best computer for the best price Apple sucks

49Q

50Shuttle

51Enface

52RM One

53Turbo X
Sort of brand fantastic faster and features

54Olidata
It's a really good computer even though it freezes quite often. I'm pretty sure you should buy it because the screen and the network is lightning fast. It's amazing and you could search some pictures up if you don't know what Olidata's look like.

55Advantech

56Ninetology

57Touchmate

58Lanix
Don't underestimate this Latin American brand. It is growing and Mexican young engineers will make it very competitive in the future.

59Sager
Sort of an "off brand" and can only be bought online, but if you're a gamer this is the honestly the best way to go. At a third of the price of Razer's Razerblade Pro, it literally has the same processor, graphics, and amount of ram as it does. Also has the same screen size and great battery life, although not as thin or light. Nothing, but shear performance.
Fantastic Brand, fantastic prices!
Best prices. You can find a gtx880m 6 Gb for less than $1400.

60Zenith Computers Limited
Zenith Computers Limited is the second largest personal computer manufacturer in India. The firm produces desktop and laptop computers. Its head office is located in Mumbai, and the company has 15 branches in India.

61GeTec
Amazing computers! They are strong (ex. X500) and very fast. The red-light keyboard is also extremely help full. The picture quality is also great. GeTec should be in the top five.

62Khind

I love the Vizio, I owned it for over 5 years with no problems.

64Symbol

65Siemens
Must be in top 20 lists

66ViewSonic
I USE THIS COMPUTER AND THIS COMPUTER CAN SUPPORT ASSASSINS CREED 3. THE FUNCTIONS ARE ALMOST SAME WITH ALIENWARE BUT THIS GUY HAS 5.OO RAM AND IS 1 TB MEMORY.

67CybertronPC

68Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
How would computer manufacturers make pc and mac's with out AMD and INTEL and NVIDIA after all they make the cup's and the chipsets and the graphics chips in fact if it was not for AMD they would not be the new Xbox ONE or PS 4 or the Nintendo wii and they would be no apple or HP or ASUS or DELL or Acer. manufacturers like these design and build computers made from the hardware of AMD INTEL and NVIDIA and all the other hardware manufacturers they are the real stars of the show and that why AMD INTEL and NVIDIA belong at the top of this list.

One of the best for psu's and solid state drives

81GamingPC
The Best is number 1 because it wins woy 23!

82iBall

83Odyssey

84Fujitsu
HP used to be a very good product, they had a team of amazing German engineers that ensured innovation and reliability. But since their Compaq merger those engineers have moved to Fujitsu and therefore Fujitsu is now superior. HP now uses MSI mainboards, and Apple is using nForce, both of which are really really bad.
I've own several of the top brands but after three years the computers tend to slow and I had a variety of problem. My fujitsu is four years old and going strong. It's the best computer I've owned.
I have been using a Fujitsu Siemens computer for about 2 years now, and I didn't face any problem that I couldn't solve. Probably because my laptop is quite an older model. 5 STAR SATISFACTION!
[Newest]I use Fujitsu and its not that bad, not at all...

85Hitachi
It is nicest brand of computer I have ever used

86HCL Enterprise
It is a nice brand.
HCL is the best.

ROG = asus..
