humm... looked at the gateway laptops and the M680 is most impressive, as is the M320 Series. Those will be difficult to beat.

IBM makes the highest quality laptops, but they come at a price; dunno if the cheaper ones (meaning less than $2500) are good, they probably are

if you want good battery life, then go for the intel centrino's

$2500 is slightly out of my price range.

Psh, I'm too tired to argue for a mac right now...

at $1500, i would take a serious look at a mac...The microsoft word is windows compatiable, but you'd have to buy microsoft word for mac. $1500 is good enough for a high end ibook or a upgraded 12 inch or stock 15 inch laptop. Plus you get all that free software, and the power PC arteciture is makes a Mac about 2x as fast as a PC with comparable clock speed...unless it's an AMD laptop, then it's more like...1.5 x as fast...

businesses usually use IBM think pads, you their customer service is pretty good. But beware, thinkpads are now under the command of some chinese company, so customer service might faulter.
