    Hi Andrew,
    I’ve been really looking at this laptop and also the hp dv6 quad edition. Obviously the hp has more impressive hardware and it’s more expensive as well. Based on your experience, any thoughts on which company makes more reliable laptops?
    Thanks.

      I’ve had pretty good luck with both HP and Lenovo, I guess in regards to returns and exchanges HP gets the nod because they have no restocking fee if you return for any reason within the first 21-days. Lenovo charges 15% if you make a return at any time. But of course you care more about the long term support. Rest assured that both models you’re looking at use a higher quality construction and parts than an average laptop so the failure rate should be lower. Both have good cooling systems which is important in laptop longevity. You can of course read horror stories or accolades for both companies, because there will always be anecdotes for both experiences, but in general I’d rate these companies as equal with support and reliability.
