As I know a lot of us use laptops not only for home but on the gig I thought this would be good info to pass along:

Interesting, I see Acer have moved up from 4th to 3rd.

Just bought myself a new Acer. 19 screen with full 1920 X 1080p Resolution. Biggest darn thing you ever saw. It's huge but seriously sweet.

I needed the screen for graphic design.

I've been using a Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop for several years...before that I had a second hand Toshiba, that worked perfectly, until I decided to upgrade for the bigger screen and CD/DVD drive.

My next laptop will be a Toshiba.

I've heard some horror stories about Acer.

Have another look, the graph goes from right to left, not the other way around.

Am I reading it wrong ? Looks to me like they are third ?

Let me chime in supporting Toshiba. I had a Dell Inspiron and loved it. My daughter had a Toshiba and just had problem after problem with it. We sent it back twice and she finally decided to get herself a Dell. It sat in the corner for two years; couldn't find a buyer. My Dell finally croaked, so I picked up the Toshiba Satellite and upped the RAM. Works like a charm and never even burps. Love it.

There is a not so closely guarded secret in the notebook business, that the vast majority of the notebooks you and I buy are manufactured from only a handful of companies, regardless of brand.

Take a look at this

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lap...rers_.28ODMs.29

Quanta manufactures one in three laptops in existence.

I have a little Acer Aspire laptop. Previously had a Gateway. They both work great.
My home PC is also an Acer. It's the third one I've had. My experience with them has been good.
