Default 2K Dell Laptop

What's the best I can get? Other brands acceptable. This is just a scenario buy, but I'll probably be asking this again in 1 year. Please do not start a flame thread.

Dells arent bad laptops, just be sure to get the gold warranty so it covers everything, including stupidity.

Personally i will never own a toshiba just because of all the crap they put on them. I shouldnt have to reformat my machine as soon as i get it due to 80 running processes of bloat.

Also be sure to mention the 25-30 day shipping.

They have a very bad rep and terrible customer service and max 1 yr warrenty. It is worth to put in an extra bit of money for better quality,service, and support.
