I have not been lucky finding a good laptop

There are so many kinds of laptops - I can't seem to find the right laptop. There are Dells, and Gateways; there are vaios and compacs .. and the list goes on. Which laptop is the best for a person who knows nothing about fixing laptops but loves the convenience of the portability laptops bring??

Take this advice.. branded does not mean its better.. its what's in the inside that matter most. I just bought a nameless brand(Muveex) laptop yet the performance is near that state of the art pc.. even the games that i play run smoothly. Work is not a problem at all..

Wow..where did you buy this "nameless" laptop.. I do agree,though, name brands don't guarantee perfection at all..Most of the time..whenever I shop ..I go for the bargains..and don't fee that quality is sacrificed by doing this.+

You may want to try a MAC notebook. One of my coworkers has one of these and loves it very much as it allows him to use both MAC and Windows XP on this computer. I do not remember the exact name of this laptop but it is a MAC and it is quite expensive. Some of my other friends seem to be switching to MACs as well.

Hi Kevin, thanks for the good advice about Macs. I have heard through my dealing with our companies clients that the Mac does experience some difficulties with certain programs.. Are you aware of this? Do you have a Mac? I do trust your words on this..but also have heard from our customers..some of the difficulties they have with some online logins ..example..importing and exporting data from the mac to a database oneline..Have you heard this?
