Crap. Techmaster is NZs agent for ASUS, warranty and non-warranty.
ASUS also make parts - not only their own but also for Sony laptops.

Sony is buying ASUS parts because they can get them cheap :)

What do you mean...I'm just telling it how I see it. I'm not here to be put down or abused.

Your sample size of two computers, one of which may have been horrendously overprices means absolutely nothing at all.

I don't know a whole heap of techie speak about computers...I just like a laptop that does what I want and does it fast...had a lot of freezing issues on applications with the Acer...so far none on the Toshiba. Here's the comparison: CPU...Acer (A): 2.2 AMD Turion dual core ultra, Toshiba (T): 1.8 Intel celeron dual core. RAM...A: 3GB, T: 2GB. HD...A: 320GB, T: 400GB. OS...A: Vista, T: Win7.
All I know is that the Toshiba works better for me, may not be everyones piece of cake, but I like it. I used the generalisation to make a point that the more you spend doesn't necessarily mean you're going to get a better product. End of story so stop being so picky!
