  • Its a tricky job to recommend a laptop than say when it comes to desktop.
  • The main reason is the case, LCD, keyboard, touch pad varies from model to model and its difficult to comment about them unless there is a review about it on a reputed review site or unless one has had a hands on with the laptop.
  • Even after that the laptop service varies from region to region and from brand to brand.
  • So i would request laptop owners to use this thread to update their laptop models. The issues that they have faced with it (like overheating or bad hinges that breaks up after couple of years etc... ) and if they had got it repaired the repair details and how satisfied you are with the service of that brand.
  • This would help a lot of fellow TEians to decide their laptop based on whether they have good service in their area etc...
  • If members can stick to this Template then that would be great :)

Let me kick start this thread by commenting on the three laptops that i have owned.

Make & Model: Dell Inspiron E6400/E1505 Month & Year of purchase: June 2007 (Sold it off Jan 2011)

Specs: Intel C2D T5300 1.73GHz, 1GB DDR2 RAM, Intel GMA 950

Major Issues faced(if any): NA

Service record (if any): NA

Other comments: It was a rock solid laptop with excellent build and i never faced any issues with it. Had to sell it off since it had aged and batter backup was low. Also needed a HDMI port.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Make & Model: Acer Aspire 5742z-4685 Month & Year of purchase: Dec 2010 from USA.

Specs: Intel P6100 2GHz, 4GB DDR3 RAM, Intel HD Graphics

Major Issues faced(if any): The WD Blue 320GB HDD conked off. Guess it might be due to a bad handling during flight (Just was kept inside a big bag wrapped in cloth) or my bad luck. Due to Acer's Intl warranty policies i didnt even visit their service center. Replaced the HDD to Seagate 500GB 5400.6 myself and working like a charm now.

Service record (if any): NA

Other comments:
  • The area near the right side of the touch pad gets a little warm after elongated usage.
  • Its a complete plastic build (matte).
  • I feel the screen wobbles a bit when i type fast and its placed on a table.
  • The screen is also very glossy.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Make & Model: Dell Vostro 3500 Month & Year of purchase: : May 2011 from USA.

Specs: Intel Core i3 2310 2.1GHz, 2GB DDR3 RAM, Intel HD3000 Graphics

Major Issues faced(if any): NA

Service record (if any): NA

Other comments: Went for this laptop since i wanted a matte screen, USB 3.0 and also a better chicklet KB. Pretty satisfied with the laptop. Its got a good build and the area around the touch pad doesn't get warm. But on occasions the touch pad seems to freeze. Not sure what causes this though.

Major Issues faced(if any): Hard drive developed bad sectors (around 15~20 of them) after a year of usage but the Samsung service centre denied replacing it suggesting the drive to crap out completely

Other comments: Replaced that drive with a WD 500 GB drive later. Otherwise the netbook works just fine.

Make & Model: Dell XPS 15z Month & Year of purchase: May 2011 , Dell India

Specs: i5 2410M, 525M, 4GB 1333Mhz RAM, 500GB 7.2k RPM HDD, 15.6in FHD Display

Quirk: The screen has a very thin edge and has a 1cm thick bezel running around the edge which is glued on with spots of glue at 2cm intervals, causing bezel to seperate from the display and collect dust. A replacement panel had the same issue

Service record (if any): Contacted Dell Support to see check if this could be resolved and was told that the only solution was to replace the entire display including screen and lid. Thought what the heck and gave them the go ahead. The service engineer who visited my place was severely incompetent and was unable to remove the bottom access panel and tried to force it open breaking the acess panel, palmrest and IO panel cover. A senior engineer visited the next day and acknowledged the damage to Dell. Was told by both of them that since it is a new model, they don't have too much experience with it. I really feel that isn't an excuse and not something a customer should deal with.

How this was resolved - I pushed for a replacement since I didn't want people who said they are not comfortable in working with a 'new model' dismantling my laptop. Was approved the same but finding that there is no advance RMA policy by Dell , cancelled the replacement request and returned it to Dell for a full refund. This took another 2-3 weeks to get completed giving me about a month of loss in productivity.

This shouldn't be taken as a judge of Dell's entire service team but people getting their laptops service should keep it in mind that things can go wrong and be alert for the same. In Chennai service was handled by Wipro.

Other comments:
  • Chiclet keyboard could do with a dedicated Page up/Down, Home etc keys since pressing FN is a slightly inconvenient at times

Make & Model: Dell Studio 1555 - Model: PP39L Month & Year of purchase: December 2009

Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 @ 2.20GHz, 4GB RAM, ATI Radeon 4500, 500GB HDD

Major Issues faced(if any): Overheats from day 1! Dell Support Sucks in my region!.

Service record (if any): Several calls made to Dell starting the 1st month. False promises. Could not pursue the matter for lack of time.


Other comments:

* Have 2 of these bricks. The one I am using right now is better off than the one my wife uses. Hers takes forever to start and shut down due to the heat. Products such as these give MS a bad name. Have had enough and am switching my loyalties to Apple. I will try and service these bricks once I have some time and have the Macbooks in hand. Till then, these are indispensable.

* Will not touch another Dell product with even a pole. My honest advice, never buy Dell till atleast their service support is at par with the US of A for all regions within the whole of India.

Make & Model: Dell XPS M1330

Month & Year of purchase: Aug 2007

Specs: T8300, 3 GB DDR2, 160 GB 7200 RPM drive, 8400M GS onboard

Major Issues faced(if any): Dead motherboards on 3 occasions, one keyboard replacement.

Service record (if any): The laptop came with worldwide NBD repair or replacement so I had it fixed at my home in Chennai, then in Mumbai, then in Chennai.

Other comments: This particular model is very well known for having the bad batch of Nvidia GPUs. As a result, the motherboard was doomed to die from the beginning. I haven't had a motherboard failure since my last replacement (in Jan 2010), though performance has tanked. Originally, I was able to play Battlefield 2 on all high and Warcraft 3: TFT for hours if I wanted. Now the device slows to a crawl and then shuts down. I have a feeling this is the BIOS throttling or something because I've taken the heating assembly apart to clean it since and there wasn't much to clean and because it's been this way since I got my last motherboard. It cost Rs. 60000/- when I bought it and if it lasts another 2 years I'll feel great about the purchase. Right now, I just feel good. On the bright side, the aluminium + plastic case seems fairly stable. I dropped it once on the corner of the screen from a 4-foot-high table with no damage. I dropped it again a few weeks ago from 4-foot-high-table on the left-bottom edge of the side with the keyboard and the case has flexed open a bit there.

Make & Model: Compaq 6102AU Month & Year of purchase: Feb 2007
Specs: AMD Turionâ„¢ 64 X2 TL-50 (1.6GHz); 15.4"; 1 GB DDR2; 100GB Serial ATA; Nvidia GeForce Go 6150; 5 in 1 Media Card Reader; Bluetooth; Wifi.
Major Issues faced(if any): At the start of 2010, i faced with the very famous "no display" issue and approched HP for repair. They quoted Rs.15,000/- for MB replacement and i had to escape from there. Searched youtube and finding a solution i bought a gas cigarette lighter for Rs.20/- and torched the video chipset for 30 seconds (this is called balling). Till now this lappy works like a charm.
Service record (if any): 15,000/- my assssss.
Other comments: I am still using it because i love its aspect ratio and it gives 3.5-4 hrs of backup with a 12 cell battery.

Make and model: Compaq C702 TU

Specs: Intel Celeron 530M@1.73GHz, 2GB DDR2 667MHz@533MHz(upgraded from 512MB), Intel GL960 Express chipset, Intel GMA x3100 IGP, 80GB Fujitsu SATA HDD, Samsung TSST-L632H PATA, RTL8139 Ethernet port, Broadcom 802.11b/g wifi, Alps touchpad.

Month and year of purchase: October~November 2007, Dubai.

Issues faced:
1. Within 1 yr the card reader died on me as i and a friend were experimenting with an unsupported Sony memory stick card which bent the pins inside.
2. Next in 2009, did a bios mod, which caused the laptop not to boot, but managed to salvage it. finally re modded the bios, added slp2.1 support, even though i have an original copy of w7U.
3. Next problem was with the keyboard. On starting, the laptop would not boot sometimes, and sometimes make loud beeps. the problem was that the ctrl key got shorted inside. cleaned the keyboard with alcohol, and problem solved.
4. As of May 2011, the laptop would become very hot to touch, and would shut down of its own. opened up the laptop and cleaned it, changed TIM. will have to open it again soon to put better TIM + mesh.
5. Battery now gives only 20~30 min of backup.

Servicing record: None. Asked a HP rep about the card reader and he said that if you have inserted the card wrong way, warranty will not be provided for the item if pins are found to be bent, and did not have any use of card reader at that time, so did not take up the issue.

Usage: Am using it as a download rig+surfing+ebook reader. Also used it for my W7 party, as a tool to show ease of networking. Have already tried using a custom ChromiumOS image on it and its good, except for the touchpad.

Plans for the future: Will be changing the battery, upgrading the b/g card to a Intel 6230 for wifi n+BT support. Also plan to use it as a chromebook if i get a newer laptop.

Boy o boy am I gonna have shit to say once Dell fixes my laptop. Dell technicians seem to be utter shite. Many who have come to 'service' my laptop are opening the model for the first time. All problems have been caused either because of the incompetence of the previous engineer or overheating issues on the laptop.

Dell stuff seems to be hit or miss. If you are lucky and there's no issue with your system then GREAT. But once one of their idiots opens your system that's the end.

There better be good PC laptops by the end of 2013 or I'll reluctantly end up getting those fruity Macs

If you are using a high end product,then you should get good support too.

As i have used HP premium laptops( worst service for premium laptops.) Dell, (Best service so far, They are quick in response, they even take calls at 3 in the night.There service team is worthy of the name.Dell service guys are knowlegeble, not like other service center fools,who fumble around windows 7 & 8.)
I'll tell you my story of the service center guys.
1. My first laptop
Model & Make :compac 17in ,
Year of purchase: 2008
Problem: it had a problem of sudden shutdown.
Service Record : The service was provided by the so called HP service center.It was a regular low budget laptop. the hp center guys were fooling me, that it has no problem a tall..The service engineer was trying to teach me how to clean the temp files..
Ok leave it. it had some issue with the dust, so after opening the system and cleaning it the problem was gone.
2.. My second Laptop
Make &Model : HP dv5,
Year of Purchase : 2009
Specs : core 2 duo , 320 gb, 2 gb ram ,9600gt gpu,. costed me around 70k. so was a premium laptops at that time.
Service records : Again it started giving me problems with the screen, i got it replaced from delhi service center, but it took me around 2 months, and several fights with the service center guys to solve the problem.
3. My 3 rd and 4th laptops were dell xps 14 and 15 L502x,
In the L502x, had faced some issue with the fan, and motherboard, got it replaced in 3 working days.
I had some problem with the drivers in installing windows 8 got it fixed @ 3am by the service guys, My L502x laptop, is still under warranty, as bought an extended warranty pack or 8k.But, it was worth every penny..The peace of mind..........
4. My 5 th laptop is lenovo y510p,Don't know about the service, but i had a funny experience with the sales guys.
I wanted to purchase an extra gpu ultrabay for my laptop.But this fellow being ignorant of the facts , was insisting me that laptop graphics can't be extended..
And the lenovo service center guys don't even bother to talk to the customers. and reply to the mails.
Worst sales team seen anywhere. A lenovo dealer told me that they don't bother about there sales even.
Seems Lenovo thinks only making good product they can survive in the indian market.
They dont spend on there sales & service team.

The moral behind me boring with all the details is that kindly buy a product that gives you better service, as its very much needed in the high-end used laptops.
