I just got this: Asus U52F-BBL9 Review & Rating | PCMag.com
(in dark blue) after my Toshiba died. It's got an i5 Processor, 4GB of RAM and like 640GB harddrive. Wayyy more than I use. I use it for creeping the internet, school stuff, and to store my pictures on. The only part I don't like about it is I have to shut it down entirely more often than my Toshiba needed. Usually I just let it hibernate.
I liked my Toshiba, but I abused it. It was dropped several times in the couple years I had it and the last fall was from the arm of my couch, so the seam on the bottom of the screen opened and messed up the screen, then it freaked out and stopped connecting to the internet. So I sacrificed the last year of my warranty for a new laptop.
I am personally not a fan of Dell laptops. Their manufacturer's warranty is the best because they break more often. My bf has one and I hated using it while mine was in the replacement process.
