There is no way to the determine the "best brand" of anything.
If I were to say HP is the best brand someone else would say "No it isn't. XYZ is the best brand".
Another person would say "XYZ is horrible. ABC is the best".
As I stated I have had no major issues with my HP laptop. So for me, right now, HP is the "best brand".
Future experience with this laptop will determine if I continue to think it is "best".
PAST experience also influences what we think is "best". My daughter had a Toshiba laptop.
Shortly after the warranty ended she started having problems with it. She recently got a new laptop and it was NOT a Toshiba.
Based on her experience (and that of a couple of other people who ended up disliking their Toshiba laptops) I steer clear of Toshiba. The experiences others have with a certain brand can also influence us regarding future purchases.
Hollowface, you did agree that custom built is best. However, you have given no opinion on which brand YOU think is best and why.
