I also have an HP but other than it being stable, some things, like the speakers, are not too high quality, although it might just be the model I use (compaq 610). I also had bad experience with DVD burners, they don't last too long, but this one, with sporadic use, is still holding on after 1,5 years. I also heard Dell is making really long lasting and reliable ones. The problem is that the hardware inside has nothing to do with the brand usually.
