I don't have any other recommendations thant a macbook, but that's the only laptop I've used. Macbook's are a bit pricey, so microsoft people usually hate em`, but OSX & macbook hardware performs very well together.

I'm sure you'll get more suggestions though, brucelee would probably know of some good non-mac laptops, since he's a microsoft nuthugger.

1st, you gotta know how much you want to spend, then I'd look at reviews and comparisons of laptops. How much DO you want to spend? what features are must-haves, etc.

lets put it this way... $1000 for a mac will get you something.... the same $1000 on a pc will get u something twice as fast, thats upgradable.

i spent about 800 on the last laptop it lasted about 3 years but had a shitload of problems, from what iv'e heard laptops don't last more than a few years.  Besides that i'd say the hp stuff is shit so i want to try buying from a different company.  i would buy from apple, but it's too expensive.  I'd rather just spend a few hundred and buy a laptop every two years or so then spend like 1000 or whatever and have it for like four years but probably it'll will start to wear down and having problems and shit.l

so i'm looking to spend something like 300-400
i guess a deceent processor, ram are imporant.  Probably about 12-14 inch monitor. graphics card not that essential

i use it for browsing internet, and i will have many tabs open at once, and also have some other programs like i tunes open

-use word/excel
-edit videos with movie maker or some other software
-some p2p file sharing stuff

that's about it
