Default I'm thinking of getting a laptop

What's the best laptop to get that is under $2000? is it cheaper to buy one online or at retail stores?

HP or Dell. Go with a Pentium M 1.7 or around that area with at least 512 RAM. I would buy online, however check the stores as well to compare. You never know.

Buy online, it is cheaper. Dell and HP (Compaq too for that matter) are all fine laptops.
