Don't buy cheap hardware with crappy drivers and you won't have any issues with Windows 7.

Unfortunately even expensive laptops have issues with bad drivers.
If Microsoft made their own preimium laptops like they did with the Surface tablets, they'd have a good chance to compete with Apple in the $1K+ space.

What brand name Notebooks have problems with Windows 7? I have bought many notebooks and desktops with Windows 7 on it but have yet to see a BSOD cause by drivers.

Ones that come with crappy AMD switchable graphics or some other manufacturers who make their driver page so obscure. I have personally experienced crap like this from Sony and Toshiba.

I am completely against having hardware and OS from different vendors. You end up with crap. That's why I'm against any Android phone except for Nexus and any Windows device not manufactured by Microsoft themselves. OS should be nothing more than firmware.
