Default Notebooks

What would be a good company to buy a notebook from other than the main companies (dell, hp, gateway etc..)?

thats a hard one because most people dont know how to build one.. um either way all othose companies are going to rip you off somehow.

i would go with dell because they have the Core Duo's

P4 HT 3.0 Ghz
2x512 Samsung Memory
Intel G945i Chipset
eVGA 7900GT KO
Crappy 80g HD
(trying to get )ePOWER 500watt PSU

Notebooks from cyberpowerpc and ibuypower have generally looked good to me. I've never read any CNet reviews or anything like that on them, might want to check that out.
If you're looking for a low-end to mid-range lappy I would suggest Compaq, they are pretty good for the money. Same stuff as HP but at a lower price. If you need something higher end I would look into ABS. They have great prices and you can also buy many great models through Newegg.
