Default Advice on what kind of laptop to buy

I would like to buy a laptop and don't know the best kind to buy. Is there a particular brand and model that's better then another? How much memory and how fast should it be? I'm mainly going to use it for an internet business so it doesn't need to be really fancy. Any advice?

Dell laptops a good, any of the Vostro series will be fine.

As for specifications.

Don't get less than one gig of ram 2 gig is better.
Dual core at a minim, avoid celeron M as its not dual core it's single core and it's a little old.
80gig on bare minum hard drive go for 100+
Unless you are gaming integrated graphics will be fine.
