    Yes again the old debate
    WEll im looking to buy a new laptop and im really stuck on toshiba My price limit is about $1400-1500, I've heard stories from everyone downing all the companies. Salesmen at a computer store tell me that dells are very poorly built and unless u fork out alot of money there really just crap. And people have told me that toshiba are great just have alot of software problem. The only real thing ive heard bad about Hp is there pricy.

    IM looking for somthing that will alow me to do photo editing (cs3), minor gaming(ill upgrade the battery), SChool work, Music/movies, and with an n wifi.
