This is more or less a question of opinion...

But I am sold on HP laptops.

I have owned LT's for more than 10 years now and I use them hard. One of my machines (an HP) has pretty much been on and running without break for almost a year and a half with no problems. Once a month or so I shut it down to clean the fans but that's about it.

... and the fans are a perfect example of quality... HP has created easy access to the fans for cleaning purposes... Takes me less than 5 minutes to open, clean, close and be ready to run again. something that you don't get on many other machines.

The HD on my HP is also easy to remove and replace... one simple screw and the HD easily unclips from the bottom of the machine... good for people who like to interchange HD's

A laptop is a laptop but it's little things like this that make the HP stand out from others.

Toshiba generally have a great recovery process thats quick and easy - so if you mess around a lot with software thats great.

My Toshiba has been to collage walking across town for over a year, and its now approaching two years old - it's light, reliable and has a great screen. I wouldn't go with any other make of laptop.

if you want a tablet, get a toshiba techra, a laptop an ibm thinkpad (R/T/X series). HP/Compaq/Dell's are really turning into garbage. I have about 50-75 Thinkpads in use at all times and very sledom is there an issue that isnt user related.

wut exactly is a tablet? i am not the best with laptops sorry.

Also thanks everyone for your responses. They have really helped. I ended up getting a Toshiba Satelite(couldnt afford a techra). Heres the link to the specs and a pic

So far its been great. The recovery process is very easy like mentioned by rhawkes. I got a display model so i got an extra 100 Dollars off and did a recovery. Its very low profile(thin) and it really isnt that heavy. The reason i didnt go with IBM is because i feel they are overpriced.

a tblet is a laptop that has a swivel screen on it where you can fold it down and using a special pen, literally write directly on the screen (no ink just plastic) and the writing is in the doc you are writing into without having to scan it in.
