Laptop Brand help from an Aussie

I'm looking into laptops I can get in NZ without an OS or at least no OS.

About the only brand I can find is an Aussie store called Pioneer Computers. I haven't heard of them before, though on paper they look good.

Are they a reliable brand?

Or should I stay away?

Stay away, nothing less than a brand new laptop with WINDOWS 7!

JK mate! DSIO is still recovering from the floodings and investing all his time and money into building the ARK! So I guess you are the only one from that God forgotten part of the world!

Well it looks like all the Aussies are off on holiday this Easter.
Maybe someone can shed some light this coming week.

The difference in price between these and Dell, Asus, MSI, etc is a few hundred for similar specs.

But if they aren't any good, then I'll pay the extra - well lower my specs anyway.
