Toshiba make very reliable Laptops. With an Intel Centrino you can't really go wrong if its a Toshiba.

ASUS makes really good barebone laptops too. if youre looking for a well priced laptop without all the fancy junk in like compaq etc., ASUS is a good brand.

It all depends on what you want to do with your laptop.They come in the type's

1:- Lite, small screen, generally lower powered. very good battery life.

2:- medium weight, medium to high power, decent battery life.

3:- Desktop replacement, Heavy, Full powered, poor battery life.

Cat 1 are generally cheap and great for taking with you and doing wordprocessing, Internet etc. NOT games. Can be quite cheap.

Cat 2 If you get one with a good GPU they can be a little expensive but are powerfull enough for most games.

Cat 3 As the name suggests, similar to a full desktop, not designed to be moved everywhere, alright if your taking it around in a card but too heavy to lug arround and the battery life can be as low as 1Hr 30mins as they use desktop CPU's. Not very expensive.
