Nope. The simple fact about laptops is that if you want it to be good you must pay for it. Todays "good" technology will be much more than $1000.00 USD

EDIT: Define what you think a good laptop is. What do you want to do with it?

Well if your doing simple work, take a look at averatec laptops

However if your a power user, averatec = crap

IMO, there is no better maker for laptops than Toshiba.
