    ASUS vs Toshiba Laptops


    Hello,

    I am ready to buy a new laptop after my last HP 15. It is getting slower and slower and I think it is time for an upgrade.

    OK, so here are some of my thoughts:

    ASUS
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus-15-...&skuId=4831500

    Toshiba Satellite Radius 14 E45W-C4200X
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/toshiba-...&skuId=4203501

    Is the Toshiba any good? ASUS any good? I am on a budget between $300 and $400. Nothing higher, just something I can use here and there and trips like in hotels, on the road, etc.

    So what do you guys think I should do? I will be (maybe) buying one this Friday, June 3, 2016, (along with some CD's Ask me if you'd like, anyway haha) I am trying to decide which one to get, but I torn. The ASUS is cheap and looks very nice (love the eye candy it has) and I have heard very good things about them, I even have an ASUS motherboard and is very well built. Now, the Toshiba looks nice, but have read mixed reviews on it. I would like to hear some people who have had experience with these similar laptops and tech people, and would love to hear opinions from anyone really!

    Thanks! C.C.

    I just bought my daughter and ASUS Transformer similar to this but it has 6 gb RAM and Windows 10 pre-installed:
    ASUS Flip R554LA-RH31T 15.6" 2-in-1 Laptop Computer - Black R554LA-RH31T - Micro Center


    So far it has been a great computer that both her and I like.

    My wife has a Toshiba 15.6" Touchscreen laptop. I hate it. It is slower than molasses. I won't ever buy another Toshiba.

    My HP Pavilion DV-6 17.3" laptop was refurbished when I bought it. It has and continues to be a workhorse. Been around the world on Navy ships and in the Middle East dessert with me, it's beat to heck, but still going strong!

    I have had Toshiba laptops for the last 4 years and would never change,
    Have several of them at the moment though out the family and friends.
    I find mine very fast and never had any trouble,
    If I was to get another laptop I would go for the same again

    I have an ASUS K75DE and love it. Excellent quality IMHO. ASUS tech support sucks big time though. Luckily I only had one minor software issue. Trying to get any kind of meaningful response from them was like pulling nails though.

    Is there any tech support that doesn't? other than EVGA, who don't make laptops, I don't know of any that are worth calling.

    True enough. I've only ever tried to contact ASUS and didn't want to brand them all with the same iron.

    I have never had to call Toshiba at all but have been on their forum and what I have seen and read they seem to be on top of it

    Asus Transformer T100 would be my choice.
    Came close to buying it, but financial matter said otherwise.

    I've had an ACER laptop, a Lenovo and now a Toshiba. I tried to contact ACER and it was a lost cause, and luckily I figured out the problem and was able to resolve it. The Lenovo was an early i5 and came with Win 7, but was able to be upgraded to Win 10. I gave it to my daughter and it is working OK for her. I think if there is a next time it will not be a Toshiba. The Toshiba came with Win 8.1, touch screen, and is an i7 but a "slow" i7 and Toshiba has disabled the Stereo Mix function in audio (common complaint from what I find). I should have sent the Toshiba back.

    That is one tremendous value for a flip touch screen even if it's only 4gb RAM and 8.1. How much more did you pay for the 6gb and Windows 10 ?
