I had a Acer for years, it was a good solid machine that never let me down until last year. the main board fried. I still have a Acer that was given me and I stuck the memory and drive from my old Acer into it, going to replace the CPU as well as my old Acer had a faster chip and it is compatible with the Acer I have now.
I don't use laptops enough to justify getting a new one.
So I think Acer are good ones to go for.
Novatech laptops used to be MSI based machines so I was told, I do not know what they use now, but Novatech is a pretty decent company from the few times I have dealt with them and also you can customise the laptop.
What sort of thing are you looking at using it for?
Windows 10 and drivers on a few machines are a bit of a pain at the moment. Try and get a Windows 8.1 machine, update it to ten soi you got the free version and then put it back to Windows 8.1 until Microsoft get their act together, if they ever do. Then you can update back to Windows 10 when ever you want.
