Which brand of computer do you consider when you are making a list of the best computer brands? Computer manufacturers who provide reliability, durability and price value are generally the ones that are considered top computer manufacturers. The top computer manufacturers strive to provide a top quality user experience, so that their PC or laptop brand maintains their reputation of quality and value to consumers. To be honest, there are not just two or three brands in the market, but many brands have stormed the market and several others have improved on their quality and reliability as well. I have listed below my favorites in terms of those that I think qualify as the best computer brands.

Have a look! It might help you in analyzing the different brands to see which ones would be best for you and your family:

1. Apple

I have talked a lot about this brand in other posts! But this post is about the best computer brands, and Apple computers, while not the cheapest, certainly are in the top group of best computer brands. Yes, the price point may seem high, but so is the quality! The built up engineering is based on an aluminum uni body. They have SSDs which make the hardware super fast, around four times faster than traditional hard drives. Trust me, that can make a difference in the enjoyment of your computer! You can trust on Apple’s reliability as it has no moving parts. Every component in Apple computers is very well thought out and incorporated. The parts are very cleverly designed especially the asymmetrical fans which can produce variety of sound frequencies. And let’s not forget the graphics……a long time signature characteristic of the Apple brand! (but we can cover more on that in another post)

2.Hewlett Packard

All I can say is that this is a time tested brand that could capture the top slot of best computer brands. And their products are less than other contenders, namely Apple. Hewlett and Packard have earned their name as the most trusted and innovative brand. This company is even older than Dell and is one of the biggest manufacturers of PCs in the world. Do you know I still have and have used an HP computer for close to ten years that is still performing exceptionally well. As far as customer support is concerned, Hewlett Packard generally has good feedback. So you can see that it’s a reliable brand and based on my experience in computer stores, it is also one of the best selling and trusted brands.

3. Dell

Dell computers have a variety of price points depending upon the really impressive computer configuration that you choose. This means that it is likely that you can find one to fit any budget. So if costs are a concern, Dell offers several quality machines at an affordable price. Their warranty ranks as the best warranty in the market. It is unlikely that your Dell computer will ever break down, but if it does, it can be fixed without much fuss. Performance wise it gives tough competition to other brands. The best part about Dell is its computers and laptops are extremely easy to fix and repair. They offer back up image restoration, so if your computer has crashed, you know your images and documents are safe. I have personally used Dell for several years. Even after going through over 100 power outages, the computer still works and works well.

4. Asus

This brand definitely ranks well and is coming in in our fourth slot. Do you know about Asus’ E family? The E family includes E pad transformer prime tablet and E Pcs. Believe me they make up a really impressive computer family. Look at Asus E PC UX 21. It is one of the thinnest PCs with an i7 core processor. The E PCX101 has a thin body almost like the Macbook Air. You can run Windows 7 on it as well. When I used Asus, I seldom saw the message ‘not responding’. Asus make great quality laptops with a sleek body that work quite well and have a long life.

As far as customer service is concerned, can’t say that it is best in the market. I have had some issues with my Asus Transformer book and getting support for it and others seems to have support issues as well from what we have seen.

Like others we’ve mentioned above, there are several price points as well for Asus computers and based on our computer reviews, we are certain that you can find one that would fit any budget!

5. Lenovo

Apart from Apple, Lenovo makes the best hardware in the PC industry. Their computers are thin, lightweight, tough and durable. That is an ‘all in one’ package. The ThinkPad keyboard is one innovation in the PC world. No one has been able to beat Lenovo on that. If you want an exclusive Windows laptop, go for Lenovo. I personally love Lenovo for its impeccable design, quality and durability. There has been some scuff over its customer service and performance though. In the beginning customer service is very prompt, but with repeated problems, the support loosens. That is where some other laptop brands are simply better.

6. Acer

If you want a strong and reliable PC, Asus will not disappoint you. I have been using Asus randomly while traveling. After six years or use and testing it, it broke down finally. But for six years it delivered to 100% of its ability. Acer seldom has any manufacturing or design flaw. It does seem that Hewlett Packard may get better feedback. The touchscreen PC designed by Acer has been very popular. I know some users, who are quite happy with Acer touchscreen and it’s one of the computers that I’m considering for our family use this year. The families I know that use this brand to play games, school work and general home use and Acer is giving a fabulous performance for over two years. So overall Acer is a great and reliable PC.

7. Toshiba

Toshiba has been a trusted brand for a long time now. The thing I like about Toshiba the best is its battery life. When I am travelling for long hours, I prefer to carry my Toshiba laptop as it saves me the trouble of plugging in for charge. If you love great screens you are bound to love Toshiba, graphics and visually it’s an impressive product. I have not heard any complaints on its quality going down. If you have to do a lot of office work on your laptop, Toshiba has enough memory to run with the best and a hard drive with space. It is not an over the top expensive laptop, but it is a high quality and solid performer. Toshiba will never let you down with its product quality and performance.

8. Samsung

While Samsung may have landed in 8th position on my list, don’t get me wrong, they make great computers and tablets! In fact, I’m hoping to add the Samsung tablet to our family techie gear this year. Like Apple, you can combine all your technology under one company umbrella if you choose with Samsung. Phone, tablet and computer – all synching and working together. Awesome! Samsung computers and tablets are impressive. The touch screen all-in-ones really make the grade. Quite simply, whatever you want to do whether it’s work, shopping, movies and more Samsung is simply wonderful at whatever you want to do with it. If you want to undergo a complete computing experience, you cannot go wrong with Samsung.
