I am thinking about buying a new laptop. But I don't know what kind to get. I hear that Dell's are good. A lot of my friends have them. My stepdad just got a new Toshiba. It seems nice. I want a pretty decent one. Something I can use for school and also something to have some fun with too. Do any of you have any suggestions?

I have always stuck with dells they have a great warranty tech support and they have the parts replicable like modem, video card. Nice things are possible like having 2 batteries for twice the batteries life I don’t know if others do that. . I find that they take a lot of abuse. I would second recommend a Toshiba.

Hrmm, Alienware actually makes a good laptop despite popular belief. I'd look into them and do some price searching as well.

remember, laptops use batteries!
some of those OTT specs will last about 30 mins.

A Laptop is a mobile computer, not when it is hooked to the mains :P

My laptop serves as my server.
(Our school gives out laptops to students.)

I haven't done building my new desktop, so right now everything still runs off that 1.6Ghz Pentium M Laptop. Yes, M, standing for Mobile, means it's designed for my laptop when carried around and not hooked to the power. However, my laptop has been on my desk for 3 weeks now, constantly on. (I used to have Redhat on it, until its 40GB HDD couldn't have room for 2 OSes any more).[/quote]

I recommend a Toshiba, my wife had one and it work really great. Never had any trouble. Dell is a great company, but I trusted more on desktops.

Keith, please don't respond to threads that are 2 years old and completely irrelevant to you. You're not having any similar problem that we could use the previous discussion to help you...you should have posted a new thread.

I'd recommend you check out http://www.newegg.com/ and see what you can find. I'm not sure what shipping is like to the UK, but they've got the best rates around.
