I got a Packard Bell, and I reckon they're pretty darn good actually, I wouldn't say there is a "best" all round, maybe one is better for a particular purpose, e.g. gaming. However i will tell you what not to go for, Acer are generally considered to be crap, I don't like Dell either, I know someone that spent 2000 on a Dell laptop and its rubbish... cant think of any others, hope that helps.

Oh, I wasn't really thinking of Packard Bell because I never thought it was a good Brand, well i guess now that I cant judge something by it's brand. I was going for Sony Vaio because of it's brand, but now, ill probably go for Packard Bell. Also, my uncle has a Dell, and it is acutually "crap". Although I havent heard much about Acer, I've seen alot of Commercial of Acer in Chinese movies/series.

Packard Bells have a horrific reputation. Worse then Dell. I would strongly advise against any thing related to them.

I would recommend either an AMD 64 Acer.

Dell if you want it to be cheap... IBM if you want quality.
