Anyone have anything on them? Good? Bad?

Sounds like I need a laptop now for school since I switched my major over to business...which is disappointing as I only have about a 1,000.00 budget for it. So, any reviews on these?

Any recommendations on another laptop that will last me the next few years that is around a grand? I don't need it for games, but the more power the nicer obviously.

For example, maybe one of these two:

Or even better, this one from NewEgg, cheaper and paper thing:

Any place cheaper?

Thanks guys!

No such thing as a laptop that "will last the new few years" because that sort of prediction is gioverned by a little thing called Sod's Law which says "I will break it at the worst possible moment".

But having said that, if all you want to do is do a bit of typing and general internet access, any half decent laptop will do. Remember to backup regularly though, as when Sod's law does strike, you may not be able to get back into it.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop which is excellent - its fast, reliable & the battery lasts forever.
The main thing you need to watch for before purchasing a new laptop, is the manufacturer's level of support. For example, Dell are excellent for support PROVIDED that you buy the extra support package. Their standard support is pretty awful. HP/Compaq are always pretty good & IBM are superb but not cheap. As for Toshiba, I don't know about other countries but in the UK, support for Toshiba laptops depending entirely on who you buy the laptop from.
