    My experience is witl the Dell systems but I have also know several co-workers having great results with the Acer systems.

    Compaq I haven't used in over 10 years and I hated them back then so my opinion there is biased.

    Maybe see what the best warranty support option you can get for the money as having support is invaluable over the hardware as they are all pretty much similar.

    my $.02

    Happy Shopping!
