The hardware database really needs to be cleaned up. Many people have used the 'type' field wrong, and there are also manufacturers that are on the list using 2 or 3 different spellings, and there are 3 categories for laptops.
Will this ever be cleaned up? If the developers don't have time, I could do some work on it (but don't have permission atm).
At least these things should be merged:
HP and HP (Hewlett-Packard)
Laptop, notebook, Laptop/Notebook, Sony Vaio and Toshiba Satellite (type name instead of brand)
CP and CPU
Home Built, homemade, Self-Assembled and self-made

Feel free to correct me if I'm trying to write in Spanish, French or German.
