Toshiba are the tops. Just over a year ago I bought one of their laptops. At the time they had a remarkable offer going. Not only was the machine fully guaranteed for a year but they were offering to refund the full purchase price if it went wrong during the guarantee period.

Ten days before the guarantee ran out the machine died. I phoned them and they arranged for it to be picked up the next day. Within a week it was delivered back with a new screen and mother board. All without charge.

I then sent off the repair documentation together with my original invoice and three days later I received a cheque for the full purchase price - well done them.

Wasn't I lucky though, another ten days and I'd have had zilch. I'm going to spend the money I got back on a new desktop m/c. I haven't decided on a configuration yet but guess which make I've already chosen.
