12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.

Lenovo, Sager and maybe Asus sound good. I really have no idea though every site you go to lists the highest quality laptops in opposite order to the last one except apple always tops the list.

I have just requested the return of my L702X tonight and really dont want the same problems again. Usb 3 ports faulty, screen with black marks on it (they dont look like any dead pixels ive seen before), screen flashes black for a split second every 30 seconds or so when on battery, CSS jams for 2-3 seconds every 20 - 30min when on average settings then comes right. Everything was highest possible spec in this laptop apart from it was non 3D. Very dissapointed.

Thanks in advance for your help
