Updating bios on emachines
All three (which are still going today) have been dropped, kicked, gamed on, worked on through and through.
I replaced one keyboard () because my WASD letters rubbed off but that's it. Returned mine because of faulty touch pad, wifi died in my mothers one, my friends have them and the bezels around the screens are clicky (clips are not good enough).
in my opinion (Feel free to correct me with constructive criticism), this article could be biased in some way in some how when it comes to laptops....
On the other hand, HP is very well established and it is easy and cheap to fix or replace anything. They're made by ODMs - original design manufacturers.
