Right now I have an older Dell and I have liked it quite a bit, except that it's hinges broke and the touch pad went bad (battery is also bad, but that might be my fault). Right now, I am leaning towards Toshiba, but will not buy a compaq or HP. Also can't do the Mac thing, as much as I would like to I am a PC girl.
So, what I am interested in is:
something with decent speakers
something with a DVD burner
I should have about $1,500 saved up to spend (hopefully) but the time I get around to buying it.
Thanks a bunch!
