Default New Laptop

I want to buy a new laptop but I'm not sure what brand to buy. I don't need anything fancy. Any feedback would be great.

Digital Living gave the Acer Aspire AS9802WKMI a great review

its got a huge screen, built in TV tuner, built in webcam, 100GB Hard drive

only problem is that its very heavy to lug around everywhere

he said he didnt want a fancy one I was thinking of the travelmate series I have one from 3 years ago and although it only has 512mb of ram and 40gb harddrive (200gb external which now has 300mb left lol) it is still a great laptop and Ive had no problems with it even when ive pushed it to the edge by getting it upto 75 celcius and had 1mb of hdd space or both windows xp pro and linux it still is good and healthy.
