Hi,
here is my pc config...
Dell Inspiron 15R 5521
Intel core i5 3337-U(1.8 GHz,clocked at 2.7 GHz)
4 GB RAM
windows 8
I am using ESET NOD 32 antivirus and found it very useful as it is very light weight and easy.but i want to know about others like Bitdefender,Kaspersky,Norton,Avast,AVG,Escan,MSE,McAfee etc etc...what should i do??will i renew ESET?or order new one??what is best?
 
The fact that it is a laptop is irrelevant.

You are likely going to get 100 different answers as it is as much of an opinion question as it is experience/knowledge.
Then there is the fact that what the Pros use and what the average user should use can be very different as needs/knowledge of threats is quite different

From AV tests Bitdefender is the most consistent winner by unbiased testing sites testing it against both known threats and unknown threats doing "threat-like" behavior.

I used to use Kaspersky for my small business clients but it has let me down in the last year so I switched them to bitdefender.

The one downside I have seen to bitdefender is that the firewall does not allow you to just open a port, you have to specify an applications .exe file for the firewall rule.
