Default Dell P4 Celeron vs Pentium Laptop

I want to buy a brand new laptop.
What do you guys recommend me to buy? I know the Dell laptops are the cheapest in the market right now.

If I buy a Dell laptop, which one should I get? Celeron or Pentium?
The Pentium is about $130 more than the celeron.

Any comment? Thanks.

How about DELL vs IBM? I mean IBM is expensive, but does it worth the money?

I heard IBM machine is very reliable. How about Dell lap tops?

The problems that my company has had with Dell laptops have been:
1. Two Battery failures
2. One keyboard failure
3. one screen failure
That being said, I must add that when I call Dell, I can get a human being right away and get the problem looked at. If the unit is under warranty, they will send someone out to fix it and if it has to be sent in, its back in a few days. We keep buying Dell laptops because of their excellent service.

CELERONS ARE THE WORST P4 MOBILE ARE GOOD BUT THE CENTRINOS ARE THE BEST FOR PREFORMANCE AND BATTERY LIFE. EVENTHOUGH THE CENTRINO IS A 1.7 GHZ IT BEATS A 2.6GHX MOBILE

IBM's are extremely nice if you can afford them
