Get a Dell, over the Net. Spend the extra money and get the extended service policy. If it breaks, and they do, you will be glad you spent the $$. R

IBM is pretty good - IBM notebooks are well designed and the tech support is top notch. Dell notebooks have lots of features, but the build quality on the Inspirons is only so-so and the keyboards are terrible!

I know several people who have Compaq's that work great, Dell I'm hesitant about buying from them since they refuse to sell AMD..

I like how you can get drivers for more than just the "original" OS on many Toshibas.

What are you looking to do with the laptop? Are you looking for a desktop replacement?
