if by middle of the road you mean 700-900 bucks i would go with an acer, or if you can spend more towards 1000 i would def. recommend a toshiba or fujitsu.

i agree, dell is poop.

of course, it all depends on if you want a light laptop with a small screen or otherwise, and what you will be using it for the most :-)

ACER, HP, or new Dell lappy's (yea, yea... I know, but I use one at work)

I would possibly suggest something like this, if you not too tech savvy...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834115257

now of course this is just a suggestion. but it'll work for a few years for you... good size hard drive, decent memory, with upgrade possible, DVD burner, etc.. and it's a decent price as well...

there are programs out there that can lock files, but a simple logon type setup should be ok... you can also password protect the file area that you wold keep them as well... that's what I do at work... gotta keep the shady stuff hidden! LOL

Edit: Heres a couple of programs I was talking about:
