I have nothing against Apple, but if I want to spend that much money on a laptop, it better have NASA grade graphics and sound cards and maybe 3D gaming, which it doesn't. That said, I'm a fan of Sony, HP, and even Acer (good value). I still admit that Macs are great machines, just not top for me.
If you disagree, that's your deal. Make another list. These are the brands that have the best laptops as far as I'm concerned.
