I got a laptop from Best Buy 2.5 years ago. I'm nearing my 4th problem which gets me a new laptop as per the "lemon policy" they have on the service plan. I used to work there so I got the plan on a discount, which makes it even better. Prefer a Sony or Toshiba, unless otherwise convinced. Intel Duo Core HDD equal to or greater than 80gigs Prefer at least 1024MB of RAM Price range depends on how much they decide to screw me... $1300-1800 Any recommendations?
