I currently own a Dell laptop that I use at home for my photography hobby. I have not had any problems with it just yet but I have heard of some of my coworkers who use their laptops (which of course aren't Dell) for business purposes. I have heard that some of them would like something that is a little more durable and a little more stylish like the new pc portables that are currently out in the market. Although my laptop is a Dell I've had it for about a year and a half and when I've had my fill of that one and the itch for a new comes up I will not have any problems buying a hew Dell laptop. I'll hand my current one down to my 13 year old daughter who can use it for school projects or maybe start her own photo hobby.
