Pick an Acer. It is inexpensive yet fully functional. You can do anything with it. I have an Acer and it is perfect for me.

Depends how much you've got to spend...

I would also say dont go with Acer, but thats my own personal opinion, maybe me and my mum just got unlucky, but we both had them and they lasted 8 months, 12 months I managed to keep mine going but the screen was horribly broken, and I looked after it too!

Apples a brilliant but VERY expensive, erm HPs are nice and are Toshibas too (:

I've had Acer and HP, but nothing comes close to Toshiba. The toshiba I have was a lot cheaper than the HP and I have to say that its a lot better. It's much more reliable and I have had no problems with it. I've had this laptop for a couple of years, but it runs great. It's a Satelitte Pro A200. Most other people I know who have Toshibas would also recommend them.

I'm in the same situation, but my dad says any one I want (within the price range that is). I fell in love with the 14.1" HP laptop. I don't know what 'kind' it was but I think I'm a big fan of the HP laptops. My friend has one and she absolutly loves it.

what size are you thinking about getting?


everything will be okay
in the end
if it's not okay
its not the end.

I Have an Alienware, You can get it specially made and stuff, mines made for like gaming and stuff, but you can install just about anything onto them like word and stuff. only problem is they're a bit pricey, but you pay for what you get i guess.

hope this helped xx

If you have like 500-600 get an acer or dell.
If you have like 700-900, get an hp.
If you have more like a thousand, get a Sony. (I have a Vaio, I love it.)
If you have even more, get an Alienware, Voodoo, or Apple.

If 600 is how much you can spend, I'd get this.

It's Dell Inspiron. It looks like a regular laptop. You probably can't game or anything on it, but It looks like a neat little laptop. And it's pretty as well. Why don't you search on line and send us some links in your price range, then we'll help you choose.

Sony Vaio is a great laptop! I had problems with my last Dell, but my new Studio is awesome. What do you want to do with it?

A 600 dollar laptop isn't really going to be able to play games. Some, yes, but the newer ones, I don't think so. You're better off getting a desktop.
