    I find hp/compaq laptops are usually very good and robustly made too. I have a compaq presario.

    I haven't owned a dell laptop so I can't really comment on that but I hear their customer service isn't too good.

    My wife has an asus xd series laptop from about 3 years ago. It is very poor compared to other laptops of the same sort of specs, I find.

    But this is a very difficult subject because there are so many different brands, models and people's perceptions are often difficult.

    If you are going for trusted brand then perhaps look at Sony. But is that in your price range OP?

    Dell is just the best in terms of service and durability..i personally use a Sony but i'd definitely recommend a Dell..go for any model suiting to your requirements and i promise you won't regret buying it..

    I don't think 500$ for Dell is a good idea. For this budget, you'd better choose Asus, Lenovo thinkpad...

    Linux supports Dell and Compaq devices much better than Asus devices.

    Drivers, public Linux support, etc. HP supports the Linux foundation for a start.
