Proposal: Hardware Recommendations

Since we are talking about hardware recommendation, it's okay talk about brand here?

For example : You must buy -brand- X since it's more -XYZ- and have some -brand exclusive feature- for your current situation.

It's hard to do recommendations without mentioning brand-names. When some features are indeed only available with a specific brand and this feature is indeed critical for the use-case of the asker, that brand should be recommended.

I do of course see a certain risk of fanboyism here, but product recommendations without proper rationale for why this product should be preferred over alternatives should be punished by rigorous downvoting in any case.

  • I predict an army of users with Chinese and Indian IP addresses promoting brands. They will find a way if people turn to this site often for recommendations.
