For laptop repairs, I have found Dell to be the easiest to work on. They have detailed technical service manuals, parts are easy to find, and you can get in and out of them fairly quickly. HP's are not too bad either, but finding the technical service manuals is a little more difficult. Toshiba's are very hard to find any kind of technical service manual.
I usually recommend Dell to people since they have a fairly simplistic order process and their laptops just generally work without issue. Most of the times, I find that I am working on older Dell laptops, while with other manufacturers, they are newer models.
Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.
