I won't own anything but an apple...they are hard to understand if you've only ever used windows...but once you figure them out you realize how ABSOLUTELY lame windows really is...especially vista. If you MUST have a windows based machine I'd go with a Sony Vaio.

I am going to second this. I have the Toshiba Satellite and I L-O-V-E it! Mine has a nice full screen the number pad wireless connection, 2 gigs of ram. I use it for everything! My advice is, if you can get something WITHOUT vista, do it. I wouldn't wish Vista on my worst enemy. ... Welllllllllllll... lol maybe.

I don't mind Vista.. It just takes getting used to because it's a bit different here and there. Runs great! Vista hasn't crashed on me yet. I liked XP, truely because I was so used to it... I remember cursing it early one as well. Vista is ok.

I have an older HP Pavilion that I just started going wireless with Its working great so far.
I like a wider screen and a 10 key on any laptop so anything I would like would be a bit wider then normal.
I had a Dell desktop before this and never had any problems with it either.
I'm sure we will be due for a new one in the next year or so, I believe this one is about 4-5 years old. I wouldn't hesitate to get another Hewlit Packard. Just wish I could take my Windows XP with me

I have been wondering which to get for a LONG time.
Reading everyone's posts have just made me confused, everyone has such different opinions!
Soo...
Not to get a dell or macintosh.
But...
Toshiba, Sony and MAC are good?

Toshiba Satellite could be a possibility?

Macintosh is the same as MAC, or Apple.

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

I am a die hard XP fan. I've heard far too many bad things about Vista, and with my laptop being a very important part of my college career, I wouldn't want to risk a change right now.

I don't know are there laptops without Vista. (If you want Microsoft I mean). I have XP in our desktop and I can't complain about it. I haven't also any experience of Vista so I can't say anything about it.

But hey, does anyone have any experience of Fujitsu? I still think those laptops about which I told in my first message.

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
