eww HP... They are even worse than Gateway in the reliability and customer happiness charts. Incidently Lenovo also does very poorly on the charts.
I love Dell for throw away laptops but have seen a couple of their expensive models and frankly they remind me too much of the cheap stuff... At least with an Apple, or Sony you know they're good pieces of kit (*after you wipe the Sony and reinstall).

HP have two product lines:
1. Consumer products
2. Business products
I my ex-life as a computer reseller, I found that HP's Consumer products were subject to complaints, in no small measure due to their use of Nvidia GPUs that were simply a whole bunch of trouble until recently.
However, I found their Business products to be very reliable, perhaps due to their more conservative and robust designs, and subject to very few complaints. 5 year life-spans were annoyingly common... killing sales.
Lenovo and Toshiba have similar approaches, with consumer and business oriented product lines, but it's probably fair to say that Toshiba's consumer products are more similar to their business products, than either HP or Lenovo are.
