Default Whats a good laptop?

I'm looking to get a laptop next. I just don't know what direction I want to go in. I really like the mac's but they are a little to high priced for me. I probally will not be gaming with this, just a lot of downloading, things like that. Anybody have any suggestions?

Both HP and Dell are offering good deals right now. Check their websites.


What's your budget?

That case, check out the HP notebooks. They're doing real good right now.

I personally wouldn't get something from Dell besides their XPS line.

No, I wouldn't get that. Not when they're about to release a new model.
