HP is pretty popular among consumers that deem affordability more important than other considerations like performance and portability.

They do make pretty crappy laptops from what I have seen.

Better than the Dell and Sony machines I've used (which I didn't find "crappy" either). Ignoring the no.1 flaw in consumer machines (glossy screens) the quality is very good and the professional machines (proboook/elitebook) are even better.

I had an elitebook for a while, it required huge amount of power and big batteries, when you consider how bad the performance on that machine was. Others I've talked with don't like elitebook much either.

As far as pro laptops go, Lenovo Thinkpad is always a safe bet.
