    Question Laptop wanted! Need expert's recommendation of brand and shops~

    Light and slim (I'll carry around) for the basic use of Internet, music player, photo editing (I've got the Creative Suite for PC)...etc. Reasonably priced as I will probably upgrade in a couple of years.

    Which brand/model is the best value for the price and where to buy in Hong Kong?

    Any opinion is appreciated!

    Really depends on what you are looking for. I usually recommend Dell as they have a helpdesk that will assist with customer queries (I found it to be better than the others). If you have friends that can help then look at Sony or IBM Thinkpads.

    I REALLY dislike Compaq so that puts the HP's out of the running.

    I still like the Dell laptops myself but it is personal preference. I will get flamed for it but hey.

    Apple does look good but pricy as well.

    Dell is a bit heavy though...

    Anything in between?

    I concur - get a Mac. If you're not used to Macs, it'll feel a little weird to start with, but you'll find it's easier and more fun to use than a Windows machine, comes with basic creative tools and has others easily available, and it's worth it just for the brain savings from not having to worry about the crappiness that is Windows.

    On the other hand, if there's specific Windows stuff you need to run, you can, using either Boot Camp, or something like Parallels or VMWare...

    I'm on the lookout for one myself. I checked out Wanchai Computer Centre over the weekend, and saw a couple of good deals there. You might want to pay a visit over there to check out what sort of machines take your fancy.
