Default Best sites?

Hey all,

Sorry if this is covered somewhere else and I didn't see it, but what are some of the best, most reputable sites/places for building/customizing/buying a new laptop? Looking for something roughly 2.0, 100-120 gb 7200 drive, 2 gigs ram, good vid card but want to explore my options.

Any particular likes/dislikes? I saw a good deal on ibuypower but have seen lots of negatives on them.

Thanks

I am not familliar with the ibuypower , have seen ppl mention them b4. I would stay away from them and spend the extra bucks and get a mainstream notebook. Dell are easy to work on, they have free online service manuals that you candownload,used parts are plentiful on ebay. I also like Toshiba, they seem to be the most rugged. I bought a TOSHIBA to use to tune my car. It involves hook it up to the OBDII connector and driving around with the notebook in the car. I just purchased an HP 17" fora family member for Christmas. It has a finger print scanner and 2 sata HDs.

If you can find someone with a lot of feedback, I suggest eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices (... waits to be flamed)
