I think the best laptop would then be a cheap, if you do not need it for games. The ones that are $600 or less. They come with nice monitors, 512mb memory and 80gb hard drive usually.

For quality, I like the Apple laptops.

We are not getting an apple - we both use PCs at work and are effectively "non-apple" folk.

The only laptop I have is an old Compaq a friend gave me for free, so I have never really shopped for one....

Any suggestions on buying a laptop?

For quality, I like the Apple laptops. The IBM Thinkpads were also great, but I don't have any experience with the Lenovo-brand Thinkpads. But in either case, they're more expensive than some want to pay (plus a MacBook Reg or Pro isn't for everybody).

Price-wise Dell offers some decent rigs, but the physical quality of some of their Inspirons feel weaker than Happy Meal toys. Honestly, I always have to treat mine with kid gloves.

I see Meatforce is back. How was the trip Meat? I can't remember exactly where you went but I do remember it was a better place than where I've been.

LOL! Thanks for asking, WP Was in Costa Rica for a couple of weeks. I've been lucky enough to see most of Central America, but my girlfriend has never been anywhere more exotic than NYC before, so the whole thing was a real treat for her.. such a great place!

Monkeys, beaches, jungles, hammocks, G&Ts....

Tons of stories, but I'll at least post a link to some pics when I get a chance -- been busy catching up on all the juice I missed while I was away (I notice TwinkBoy is MIA at last!)

Any suggestions on buying a laptop?

Need one for the wife - no games to be played on it. Want something reliable and easy to use. Don't need any extra features or doodads. She's going to use it for working on her kinder classroom stuff and keep it on a phone/computer desk in the kitchen area.

I would think a nice screen, quality, plenty of memory and HD space would be the biggest pluses. Any brands to look for/avoid?

Thanks!
