1. Hey again guys! Ok, for graduation, for uncle is getting me a laptop. He is letting me pick it out and customize it. The thing is I have NO IDEA which ones are good, have the best features, and have the best price. So, do any of you have any thoughts, suggestions, or even better, any links to sites that have good info? If so, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

    Hey Pookie, that sounds like a great graduation present. Why don't you check out Dell computers...they have some nice laptops to chose from and they offer some great support.

    no-- not Dell... I have a friend that sent his laptop to their service center, and instead of getting his back, got someone elses computer!!!
    (lots of sensitive info on both computers...)
    very big mess...

    I personally like the HP's.... they are cool.... but, if I had to do it again, I'd get a mac.

    Personally, I wouldn't do Mac.

    I would go with Dell.

    Ya know, "dude, we're getting a dell, not a doobie..."

    Dont really know any of the technical stuff about it, all I know is I have a Mac iBook, never had a problem with it (and its real pretty ) and the b/f has a PC laptop for work (has a Mac at home) and it continually threatening to trash it due to repeated problems.But hey, weve always had Macs so Im maybe just a bit biased.

    Go with Dell. I have been buying their products for years and have never been dissappointed with service or the computers. Also, good company to go with if you are not sure what you need...they'll help you customize it to your needs.
