    My son is an engineer. When he was working for another firm they used laptops in the field for long periods. The firm would buy the lower end generators instead of the Honda's or Yamaha's. The problem with the lower cost generators is they will give power spikes. And those spikes will fry up quality electronics in a heartbeat. If you do an internet search you will find that the Honda has the electronics to prevent these power surges and thus, save your electronic "stuff" that you have plugged in. Light bulbs are cheap......fridge's, laptops and the like....not so much.

    FWIW

    If you own a basic generator, with little to no power conditioning, you can still protect your sensitive electronics with a high quality power strip (aka surge protector) that has surge protection and power signal conditioning. I use this type of power strip on all my electronics, all the time, whether on utility power or generator power.

    A few weeks ago I stopped at my favorite pawn and purchased a almost new Honda eu2500 for $250.00. Runs like a dream.
