I would say to go for a Sony Vaio or a Mac. most other makes have alot of problems. and do yourself a favor and donít even look at toshiba computers...theyíre horrible! but if your looking for a half decent computer and your on a budget get a dell or a Vaio VGN-FS570 you canít go wrong with a VGN :)

I hate to say this but itís really hard to beat HP right now. You can pick up something anywhere from 400-2k dollars and really customize it to your needs. For a semi gaming notebook I"m picking up a 2.0 ghz intel duo core 2, 17" monitor, 100GB 7200rpm hard drive, 1 gig of ram notebook for around 1600 thatís cheaper than the dell insperon in the same class by about 400 bucks and approaches their xps gaming systems in performance. Iím running an HP right now that will cost about 400 if I were to buy it new and Iíve had it three years. Go check out their sight itís pretty impressive Iíve found them very hard to beat.

I have a HP laptop - HP is an alright make. My favourite is Dell - prices for Dell laptops are usually fairly cheap and yet their still reliable.

Donít listen to the SOny buyers way overpriced just because of there brand name garbage if u ask me, and Apple MAcís ha! have you ever seen there software section in stores iíve seen bigger displays of chili powder than displays of MAC software, hereís what you need, get yourself a Dell Inspiron or anything above that specs here we go:

CPU anything above 2.0 dont go too high, or you will eat up your battery faster
RAM 2.o GIG definetly needed for todays multitaskers
Hard drive 100 GB or more
VIdeo Card: NVidia 8000 series will play almost every High end graphic game there is and display high quality MOVies on DVD, and has DVI ports
Most dells come with 7 USB Ports which is a Godsend
Most dells come also with an internal wireless Card so dont need the external
get the 9 cell batt lasts longer

stay away from Toshibs, Gateway, HP is ok Good luck

Definetly not a Vaio, Sony has the worst computer brand out there. Go HP or Dell. Dell as much as I hate them, have no problems with their notebooks, and have a great buy and sell refurbished PC program. HP, make pretty solid PCís for great prices.

the best place to buy a laptop at is tigerdirect.com Everything is cheap there and if your wanting a laptop for basic internet you can get them from $200-$400, if you’re wantong a gaming and internet laptop they run from $300-$600.

Actually If you live in the U.S then Newegg following by Tigerdirect are your best bet. If you want just the mobility, browsing the web and light tasking then any descend laptop will do. As far as brand goes I think Dell are alright. Also if you’re a hardcore gamer then laptop is out of the question, because it cost considerably more than a gaming desktop with the the specs and plus there are NO Nvidia 8800 series for the laptop. I think the best card it have is the Nvidia 7950 GO mobility.

There is a geforce 8 series for the Laptop with a 92 chipset dude.. Gateway has one with it for 1.3krand...Also..For a everyday buyer Newegg/Tigerdirect may not be your best bet.

Go for an IBM. Not many people know IBM still makes alptops but they do and they are great. Never had a single problem with mine. The popular Brands have gone to hell in my opinion.
