You know, once I had Toshiba laptop, and I must say it was awful. It didn't work properly, and I had nothing to do but replace it with another one. Later I found many complaints (http://www.pissedconsumer.com/consumer-reviews/computer.html)

All brands will have a few bad products. The cost of perfection is infinite!
That is why it is important to read the specs, some reviews, and feedback before buying. I have heard such comments about HP, Dell, Asus, Sony, and other popular brands. The same goes for cars.
