    <font size="2">What do people have at school for children to use at the
    moment? Quite fond of Dells but not sure which model is best school
    proof. Looking to buy a class set if possible so looking budget but reliable.</font>
  2. Lenovo are reliable with the exception of the keyboards which are easy enough to pick at and remove the keys from. Have an Asus personally which has been 100% reliable for two years but the shiny case scratches up like nothing I've owned before.
    From experience, we avoid HP as we bought 15 nx6325s and a bunch of others, the model number of which I can't remember. The 6325s ground slowly to a halt, all dying withing 4 months of each other and the newer ones keeled over at around the same time. The latter it turns out, have a design flaw similar to the early XBox360s where the motherboard flexes due to poor cooling, breaking the CPU's contact with the solder joints. Utter rubbish basically.
    Never used Dell as I tend to avoid them due to high spares prices but like Marmite, people either seem to love or hate them.
