I have a Sony Vaio. Acer has some really good laptops now too that few people know about.

My Dad's work uses Toshiba and those things are great. Very stable pieces of crap. Note: I refer to them as pieces of crap because I hate laptops, not Toshiba.

As long as you don't buy a corner-market no-named machine, I think you'll be alright.

Hahah, I'd buy Acer if anything, but from that list I'd choose Toshiba.

My teacher has a Toshiba and its one of the slowest pieces of crap ever. Its brand new and the thing chugs around like its a PII on downers lol. I would say get an Acer.

Dell laptops are good, but (like everything else Dell) relatively expensive.
