Arrow Heya people! i need your help!

Ok guys,

through work i have been given a grant to buy a work laptop. The grant is worth $2000AUS.

What are the best laptops i can get with this money?? I dont know much about laptops.

I dont want a DELL, perhaps a HP or a TOSHIBA. I dont want SONY because there help is shocking and if something goes wrong i want good assistance.

So guys.. can you help me???

Btw how have you all been? i havent been on here in a very long while!

All help is greatly appreciated!!!!!

Natalya

Dell probably makes the best laptops for the money.. However if this is the case.. I would maybe go for an Acer. I can pull up some stuff, but Im not sure of any AUS compter sites... Care to share the wealth?

Dell is the way to go for laptops. the 6400 is really good.

but HP or Acer make decent ones too.

Both are great

Dell are terribly bulky and cheaply built.

My mom has a Dell.. And I dont think it could be built any better. No compains with it at all.

Other then the Pent M, because I just dont like those.

Natalya, why are you so against Dell? Because IMHO they are the way to go...

Acer makes good laptops. and no they're not solid black, the ones i've seen are silver and black. They're decently priced and acer is a great brand IMO, I have an acer LCD and no complaints so far.... great bang for the buck!
