I'm a fan of HP. You'll need to be more specificc with price range and what the PC will be used for.

HP's are nice, using one right now

In my personal opinion, I would say to stay away from Dell. I know some people who have had issues with Dell laptops, my friend had to get his whole motherboard replaced and he just got the thing a few months ago. However, I also know people who have had no problems with Dell. I haven't seen anyone have serious problems with HP though.

I also have an old Thinkpad, it's really well built and durable, if you need something tough, a ThinkPad may be a good choice.

Dell and hp laptops are good all rounders and reliable
Toshiba is more for media
sony for the style concious normally pay a slight premium for sony's but if they are on sale they are good laptops

I was going to get the dell xps 13" laptop but dad got a free new hp tx1000 so I have that instead. Good solid laptop only small flaw is that they use amd turion instead of intel core 2 duo mobile so its not quite as fast as others in a similar price range. It has the mass benefit of being touch screen though which is hugely beneficial.
