I am trying to find a good laptop that I can buy that is not real costly but can handle its [bleep]. I will more than likely not be playing games on it but I might and I want it to be fast. Any suggestions?

The best thing to do is go to dells website and look at there systems or build your own. That way you can pick everything that goes in it.

I dont know who told you that a new dell computer would be any slower than any other new computer, but you dont need them as a friend. They lie to you. Either that, or they talk about stuff and have no idea what they are talking about.

Justin has a good suggestion there, I also recommend Dell for price and quality. Especially with their laptops.

It is often not the computer itself but the afterservice, I will let others more knowing than myself choose the right computer for you but don't then go and buy it from grand surface however cheaper because the moment things go wrong you are just one clients in thousands, and what is worse is the person who sells the computer has nothing to do the person in afterservice even when hoping that that person is still around selling computers in the place when you return that is. No, I suggest getting all the details here and then finding the shop on the corner nearest to you where the guy has his lunch in your local bistro and sends his children to your school. etc.. btw I would like to thank a certain company for making great machines with end of the telephone, send us back the machine, wait weeks afterservice, nothing like having your vital stuff in a computer while it's sent off somewhere isn't it, so I will confess here that I don't know which are the best laptops but I do very much know which are the ones, and for what reasons then, certain types keep turning up at our shop.

Ibooks are stable, graphics are cool, and unlikely to have you paying for upgrades and anitiviruses.

Can I borrow some money? You've obviously got a lot to spare if you can even breathe the word "Alienware"...

As for Dells being slower, ScHwErV is right... a 3 GHZ processor is a 3 GHZ processor, regardless of what it's in.

I've had nothing but good experiences from Dell and HP. Both tech supports are helpful (though Dell's is better) and both seem to make good products.

IBM makes a decent laptop as well.

You'll also run into the problem of having loads less compatible software.
