Top 10 Best Computer Brands

The personal computer (including laptops) has been one of the most revolutionary products of the last half century. It has completely changed the way we work, communicate, create, learn, and play.

Owning a computer is almost a requirement in today's society, and owning the right computer for your needs will help you get the most out of your investment. Listed below are the very best computer brands as voted on by people like you.
The Top Ten
1 Dell Dell Inc. is an American privately owned multinational computer technology company based in Round Rock, Texas, United States, that develops, sells, repairs, and supports computers and related products and services.

I've been in the computer refurbishment and repair field for 17 years. During that time, I've personally fixed or rebuilt over 20,000 desktop computers. I've encountered every brand and nearly every model of every brand over these 17 years. Dells are simply better engineered than all the rest.

You can tell they are made for business-class IT departments and that the designers considered downtime. They also understand how internal IT repair really functions. You don't need a screwdriver to replace the hard drive or optical drive in a business-class Dell computer. All Dells released after Windows 98 had system pre-activation, so you never have to type in an activation code for a Microsoft OS if Dell-branded media is used.

When it's important to lock down a computer, the case design makes it difficult to gain access. Dell designers have thought about all these factors. Dell machines are also Linux-ready.

2 Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company that specializes in consumer electronics, software and online services headquartered in Cupertino, California, United States. Apple is the largest technology company by revenue (totaling US $365.8 billion in 2021) and as of May 2022, and, as... read more

For video or photo editing, as well as any kind of graphic design or "general use," Mac is definitely supreme. I'm not just talking about specs (though the specs on any Mac are great). The operating system is simply clean and easy to work with. This is especially true for iWork, which is Apple's version of Microsoft Office (though Office also 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. However, I believe you're actually paying for the money that has gone into developing a truly advanced, yet simple-to-use, operating system. That's why more and more people are switching. The claim that the "software is incompatible" is just plain outdated. You can't deny that these are beautiful computers designed with top-quality hardware and specs, but that's just a bonus.

The best thing you can do is visit an Apple store and get your hands on these machines. In my experience, the people working at Apple are very helpful in finding you the right computer for your needs.

3 Hewlett-Packard (HP) The Hewlett-Packard Company was an American multinational information technology company headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

I have a Hewlett-Packard (HP) G42 laptop. Even though it's a bit beat up (from drops, I am young), the hard drive is failing, and the battery only lasts three hours, I still have hope in it. When you do have hope, it works fine. The reason I voted for this brand is due to a variety of factors. I really like the way they design their PCs. They have a design that looks really smooth and full of chrome.

As mentioned earlier, the company was founded a long time ago - in 1939 by William Hewlett and David Packard. That was even before Microsoft existed. I also like the trackpad on their latest laptops, as well as the keyboards. People may prefer other companies simply because they own a computer from that brand. I know I own a computer from HP, but that's not why I voted for them. I would have voted for Apple if they had a better platform, as that matters the most to me.

4 Asus ASUSTeK Computer Inc., (stylized as ΛSUS) is a Taiwanese multinational computer hardware and electronics company headquartered in Beitou District, Taipei, Taiwan.

Asus makes the best gaming computers. I'm not bragging. I'm just stating a fact. While I believe that Macs are nice, they are more flashy than anything else. Given that the Windows OS is more commonly used, the average person wouldn't buy a Mac. By the way, Alienware is manufactured by Dell. They are flashy, but if you want performance, then buy an Asus Republic of Gamers computer.

At the moment, 4GB of RAM is the norm, but these machines come with 24GB. I could delve into more specs, but if you look it up yourself, you'll understand my point. If you're looking for a top-notch, high-end computer, then Asus is the company to buy from.

5 Lenovo Lenovo Group Ltd. is a Chinese multinational technology company with headquarters in Beijing, China, and Morrisville, North Carolina, United States.

Aside from Apple, Lenovo produces 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 continue to do so. Personally, I wouldn't consider any other manufacturer when choosing a Windows laptop.

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

HP, Dell, Acer, and ASUS do not belong in the top 5. Why? Well, because they have a rather nasty habit of trading attractive design or a ton of extra, useless features for actual usability. If you're looking for affordability, by all means, choose one of these. If, however, you consider your computer an extension of yourself - almost like a third hand - do yourself a favor and pick from the absolute best.

6 Acer Acer Inc. is a Taiwanese multinational hardware and electronics corporation specializing in advanced electronics technology and is headquartered in Xizhi, New Taipei City, Taiwan.

My husband has had an Acer laptop for about 7 or 8 years now. He has never had a problem with it, even though it was not an expensive computer.

On the other hand, we've had four HP computers: three laptops and one desktop. The desktop has been good, as has my Pavilion laptop (I've had it for 5 years and still have no problems). However - and it's a big however - my husband's previous laptop was also an HP. It was pretty expensive and only lasted for a couple of years. My son has had his HP for 2 years, and it is also a pretty expensive laptop. He has had nothing but problems with it. We've sent it in for repairs and replacements many times over the last year and a half. Their repair and customer service is awful. After this experience, we will never buy an HP computer again.

7 Sony Sony Group Corporation, commonly known as Sony and stylized as SONY, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Kōnan, Minato, Tokyo, Japan... read more

I have tried using HP, Dell, Sony, and now only Apple is left. Although I find Sony laptops much more convenient and good in quality. Believe me, my Sony laptop has been on for one and a half years, and it's still working perfectly. The battery backup is around six hours if you are downloading movies or working at the same time. This never happened with all other models, especially HP and Dell.

Another thing is that there are a lot of differences and minor faults with the computer shortcut keys in Dell systems. As for HP, they do not have good build quality, which nowadays is a basic necessity. A laptop should be more attractive and should have different body covers, excellent battery backup, faster processing, and should be convenient for multitasking (handling a lot of applications at a time). Sony excels in all of these areas.

So, I would prefer Sony over HP or Dell at any point in time, or should I say, every time.

8 Samsung The Samsung Group (or simply Samsung, stylized as SAMSUNG) is a South Korean multinational manufacturing conglomerate headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul, South Korea. It comprises numerous affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol (business... read more

Samsung should be above Apple. However, I think Samsung mainly focuses on mobile technology. I wonder if they will add new features and programs to PCs or TVs, like voice-activated search for channels or connecting to Wi-Fi.

Especially for Android users around 16 years old and up, they should be able to participate in rating-based winning events, not just those who are 18 and older. We have a large young user base. I hope Samsung's staff will see and understand what I mean.

I love Samsung. They really focus on usability, and design is a significant factor. However, I've only had one issue with my old Samsung phone after about three years of wear and tear: it fell in mud and didn't charge as easily. That's it! My computer can outrun both of my mom's HPs and her Gateway with ease!

9 Alienware Alienware is an American computer hardware subsidiary of Dell, Inc. Their products are designed for gaming and can be identified by their science-fiction-themed designs.

Alienware has never failed me. The quality of the PC and the build quality are very advanced. Because Alienware is actually a gaming PC, it is very powerful.

A lot of people say it's overpriced. How can they say that when Apple is number one? I mean, have you seen the specs? They aren't worth 2,000 dollars. I could get just as good a PC, if not better, for 600 dollars. That is what I have to say about this. Overall, I think Alienware is a very good brand when it comes to PCs.

How is Mac number one without considering price, but everyone complains about Alienware prices? I don't get it. You can have any two of the following three things: good, fast, or cheap. Think about it. Good and fast is not cheap. Fast and cheap will not be good. As well as good but cheap will not be fast.

Why do people always want the Ferrari at the Kia price? The world doesn't work that way. Put up or shut up. I'll only ever buy Alienware.

10 Toshiba Toshiba Corporation is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

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 extended periods. The quality never deteriorates with this brand. Toshiba products all offer ample storage space, which comes in handy if you do most of your work on the computer.

The brand is not overpriced, yet it is splendid and has never failed to amaze me with its quality and performance. I personally think it is the best brand out there, and you shouldn't compare it to any others. When charging, it doesn't consume a lot of power, and it charges quickly 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.

If you love great screens, this is the perfect brand for you! Toshiba laptops have lots of gadgets that you can install, and you'll find that they are very useful. The settings are simple and not complicated for users. As an added bonus, their designs look modern, new, and quite neat. Of course, laptops are bound to break down sooner or later, but 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 computer for yourself, choose Toshiba. It will hold you in awe as soon as you touch the mouse. It is simply the best brand I have ever used and comes highly recommended.

The Contenders
11 IBM

IBM was the best desktop computer I ever had. I got ten years out of it before a major power surge killed it. Some guy felled a tree on a major high-power line. I wish I could buy IBM again. It was the best.

IBM is a good brand. I had an IBM desktop and got seven years out of it before a thunderstorm killed it. I miss that desktop.

A real workhorse. Best computer I ever had or used.

12 Gateway

In my opinion, HP is the worst computer brand that still works (and it's the only one my parents will buy me just because they're shiny). However, Gateway takes the cake on awesomeness. Responsive, fast, functional, and cool-looking - those are the four words I would use to describe Gateway.

Might as well be as well made as Acer. The only complaint about them is that they intentionally limit the lifespan of their computers. Acer is either trying to commit corporate suicide, or they're stupid enough to believe we'll keep buying from them.

13 MSI

I bought one last year, a GE70 for video editing, to replace my old and obsolete, but still owned, HP DV7. However, the GE70 failed after a year due to power issues and short-circuiting itself, the battery, and the power supply. I don't recommend this if you need a laptop for 24/7 computing, processing, encoding, uploading, and other tasks related to video editing or simply for 24/7 computing needs. The motherboard will fail.

Also, the build quality of the first GE70 was bad. It was made of pure plastic, which can be easily folded, and that may be what caused a bad motherboard. It is a mystery why it failed, but one thing is for sure: I will never buy an MSI again. It was my first and last.

14 Compaq

I believe we had an old Compaq at our grandparents' house, and my goodness, that thing lasted a long time! I'm not sure exactly how long, but it was probably around a decade or so. Some computers don't even last five years. It was running either Windows 98 or 2000.

I have a Compaq CQ61 laptop that's 13 years old, and it's running incredibly fast. Compaq is definitely the best computer in the world. I once had a 6-year-old Apple computer, and it was so slow. Compaq definitely needs to be first on the ladder.

Honestly, I have two Compaq computers and a Dell, and both Compaqs are working better than the Dell. So, at the very least, Compaq deserves to be ranked higher than Toshiba.

15 Microsoft Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services.

Microsoft has been in the operating system industry since the 1970s, starting with DOS and then releasing Windows. Since then, Microsoft has revolutionized the industry with every new release of Windows. With its latest version, Windows 10, Microsoft has truly created the greatest OS of all time.

Microsoft then released its Surface line of tablets. It took a few years to find its footing with the Surface RT and Surface Pro 2, but with the Surface Pro 3, the company introduced an entirely innovative product. Now, they're producing the Surface Book, which is incredible and boasts many remarkable features like the hinge and dual batteries in the keyboard and detachable screen. Microsoft also recently released the Surface Studio, which comes with the brand-new Surface Dial that is compatible with all Surface products but optimized for the Studio.

Microsoft is truly the best computer brand in the world for both hardware and software.

16 LG LG Electronics Inc. is a South Korean multinational electronics company headquartered in Yeouido-dong, Seoul, South Korea. LG Electronics is a part of LG Corporation, the fourth largest chaebol in South Korea, and often considered as the pinnacle of LG Corp with the group's chemical and battery division... read more

The haunting computer monitors and external hard disk drives are too mesmerizing. This is the best of LG.

17 Corsair

They offer really solid products with great customer service and warranties to back them up.

I have a Corsair cooling fan in my gaming desktop. It has never let me down.

18 Panasonic
19 Google Google is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.

I always use Google. When someone asks a hard question, the answer is always, "Google it." Doctor Google has all the answers. So why waste your time on anything else? It even has other apps, which are pretty good as well.

I just purchased the Nexus 7 tablet and I love it! I have two Gmail accounts (home and work), use the Google calendar, and also use Google Drive. Everything syncs and I take it everywhere I go!

I like Google, and I personally think they have good computers because Google is like the thing that keeps the internet going.

20 Packard Bell

I don't know why it's 60th. I have one, and it's really awesome. I feel it's the same as HP because it's made by Hewlett-Packard (HP).

22 Gigabyte
23 Touchmate
24 Chuwi

Chuwi is a well-known brand in China, and they make some laptops that are cheap but feature-rich. Today, we are taking a look at their HeroBook Pro. The Chuwi HeroBook Pro laptop is full of awesome features. I am using it.

25 Razer

Great company. It has amazing gaming equipment along with epic computers. This gets my vote, although it's a little expensive.

I love their products! They have a sleek design, great quality, look nice, and are powerful!

The best computer out there is "Built for Gamers, by Gamers."
