Re: Need advice on choosing a laptop.
I can't think of any particular models that are on the market right now, but I really like Dell. The restore disc(s) they give you are Windows install discs rather than factory restore discs, so no junkware if you happen to re-install. Plus they work with any Dell that came with whatever version of Windows it is (sometimes others, but not always). I also admire them for offering computers that run Ubuntu GNU/Linux!
