Hi, I used to sell Pioneer laptops when I worked at a local computer shop 
years ago. I would never buy one myself.

Pioneer use generic low-quality components, batteries usually die after a 
month and the case build is not great. Mind you this might have changed 5+ 
yrs later.

The thing I'd be asking, is not "are they ok?" but "does anyone own a pioneer 
laptop that they are thrilled with, and if so, why?".

My personal opinion; save your money and buy a brand name.
