Hardware, Embedded Systems Leo Apotheker has big plans. HP (relatively) new CEO wants to transform the company, and is willing to break with almost everything his predecessor Mark Hurd set out. How about webOS on every computer shipped by HP?

Hmmm - granted, this is over a year old, but...

I agree with your point on ASUS - bought my mom a netbook over 2 years ago, still works like a champ, battery included...

My own 1201N bought exactly a year ago is flawless. I can't wait for their new tablet line.

As to HP - I only owned printers before, and they did go down the drain qualitywise in the past 5-6 years. I was just shopping for a low-end multifunction device, spent half a day researching my options. At the price point I was looking at ($2-300) I've read dozens of horror stories about the low built quality of HP MFs. Customer reviews (amazon, zdnet) along test sites pointed me to Canon and Brother machines. Finally, I went with the former, since no manufacturer offered full duplex (printing/photocopying on both sides) at this price point. Got the MF4320d (3 in 1, printer, scanner, copier) for about $250 and very happy with the results. Build quality seems very solid, it's fast, green (low energy use + saving paper thanks to duplex) and silent.
