Selecting a laptop is completely depends on the need. Nothing more than that. If you are a gamer and you are looking for a laptop where you can play high end games, then you have to invest more and you have to choose the higher configuration which cost you more. If you are a regular traveller, then you need a light weighed laptop which is more comfortable to you. If you use the laptop for only the purpose of internet and some other small software, then no need to pay high amounts for laptop. A simple ordinary processor could be great for that need. So it was all about the money you had and the need only. And almost all brands are at same cost if they had same configuration. As for me, IBM Thinkpad, Thoshiba, and DELL laptops works great.
