Preferred hardware manufacturer

#1
When we buy technology we all have a tendency to lean more towards one manufacturer or the other. However, it typically depends on the technology I am buying. For example, if I was going to buy a laptop computer I would probably go with the Lenovo ThinkPad series of laptops. However, when I buy TV's I tend to lean toward the Vizio's.

What hardware manufacturer's do you prefer and for what type of tech?

I like LG, personally. Many people around my neck of the woods swear left and right by Samsung, and I think they are great too.

For laptops, I've always been a Lenovo guy, but nowadays I pretty much use Apple where I can. My 2012 Macbook still runs like an champ and is pretty reliable, as far as computers go. Finna

I like Motorola and Lucky Goldstar (LG), they've always been good to me... though ASUS also makes great stuff!

ideally though I'd like to build my own stuff but well... not everything can be DIY'ed... yet!

I love my Nokia 6.1. Very solid mid range phone. Headphone jack, 1080p display, 3 gb ram. All for $300.

I've got a co-worker who swears by his sony android phone.

cost a pretty penny, has a really nice camera, get's great cell reception, media playback is fantastic on it.

but besides the PSP I can't really say much for their "mobile" devices.

Woah, Sony even has phones? Interesting... Finna

Then again, there are a ton of phone manufacturers who are hugely popular in other parts of the world. Here in the US, Huawei is almost unheard of, and yet it’s basically the gold standard of innovation in many areas in the world. When I used to sell phones, every once in a while someone would come from another country and ask about Huawei’s. The shock on their face of not seeing them... was priceless every time. literally, here in the US, we just don’t have ‘em. I almost wish that we did. They are fantastic phones. Tongue

@ Thomas: Because of the spying, the data collection, or who their political ties are?
