Default brand laptop

I'm soon gonna buy a laptop and im not sure what brand i should get. I looked at Dell and you kind of have to pay more to get good stuff. HP is ok but its not my fav. cause i had an HP pavilion. Alienware is expensive no doubt. Im looking for a laptop that doesn't exceed about $1500-1600. Can someone help me out?

Thanks!

IBM is the best on the market...if you have the money. 1,500 should be enough to buy a good one. Don't be discouraged by the price, thier stuff is awesome quality. If you need more stuff for your buck, and a bit less quality, Dell is pretty good (for laptops only though). Their inspiron series is nice.

IBM hasnt made thier own laptops in 3-5 years Lenovo has! And IBM wants to sell their PC div. to lenovo but howeer Govt security comminsions dotn want to allow it. well see how that goes.
