I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 (we bought a couple years ago) My hubby works for the government and they use Dell at work, and he swears by Dell for our home stuff too when he's too lazy to build his own. I couldn't tell you what's in it though It says Intel Centrino and we've upgraded it to Windows 7.

I've had nothing but problems with my dell, and it's less than a year old. Customer service has been horrible, and that's putting nicely. The woman in India actually told me to stop talking. I was repeating what she was saying because I could hardly hear her over all the people yelling in the background and she wasn't speaking crisply so I wanted to make sure I was doing the right things.

The more memory and ram the faster it will run. Get a virus software immediately and a firewall...If you buy one with a good warranty or customer service that is great too! IMO laptops are pretty temperamental we bought thinkpads and hps for our companies and some would last forever some were trouble makers! Just like cars there are always lemons! But also if your not in a rush and have shopped prices a lot....November sales are just around the corner and you can save tons of money!! Also pay attention to what software comes with it. Windows and what office is on it. Those programs cost a lot of money!

Well. DH bought me a Compaq Presario CQ62 because it was on sale at Wal Mart for 300 bucks!! It has windows 7 and isn't one of those little screen ones.. it has a decent sized screen. At first I was like.. wth Compaq? But they are made by HP and they are AWESOME! I LOVE my new little laptop and for the price, I can't complain

I would vote MAC or Sony if you want the best. HP's are a good second choice. Just make sure you have a decent processor and a good amount of RAM. As someone else mentioned, expensive software extras are always a plus!

My husband and I own a computer business. He works on more dells then anything else. From our experience I would so go with a sony or a hp. I think over the last 2 years we have only worked on one Sony. They are great computers.
