    Take a look at ASUS laptops, awesome except a major agreement between a big company like BestBuy or whatever was never yet made.

    here are a few distributors:
    proportable.com
    lucomputers.com

    There are more though.

    I just bought a toshiba satellite laptop 4 gigs of ram, dual processor, 450 gigs, awesome 15 in display for $899 at best buy.

    I realize their average on the rankings, but I thought the price was pretty good for all the goodies.

    I really enjoy it so far.

    hey i was just trying to help. obviously i could name some high end computers. just trying to give you a recommendation from personal experience.

    I guess with your ******** money rolling in money shouldn't be a factor anymore.

    no offense taken. I was goofing around also. i know how us IT techs get about our hardware.

    I just thought it was pretty good for the money. I figure at that price I can afford a new one every other year.

    Toshiba Satellite PSAG4U-01700J

    Plus I had to give you a hard time since you didn't respond back to my PM the other day.

    I'd suggest a Dell XPS 1530.
    LED display, HDMI-out, and a slot-loading drive are a few of the benefits.

    I personally use a Dell M90 precision. I can run this bitch 24/7 365 (and I do) and it NEVER gives me any trouble. Not exactly what you might call pretty; it's all sleek lines and not much adornment but DAMN is it ever capable. I haven't found anything that it can't handle. My bro and I operate a laptop business both online and in our hometown. We're also hooked up with some people who buy in bulk directly from Dell. PM me if you need some help finding a good deal.

    I have had a couple of toshiba satellites and have nothing but good things to say. They use quality hardware and they're laptops are really durable. I have been on a lot of crazy nights with my laptop in my backpack roaming around and they start right up every time

    I love my Gateway and I've ran it 24/7 for about a year w/o any problems. You can find some really good deals on Dells though on e*bay.

    I know that you asked for 15',
    but for the desktop replacement I went with 17'

    I got myself HP Pavilion dv9700t series a few weeks ago.

    I paid like $1200 after $500 rebate.
    I put maximum CPU, Memory etc.

    So far so good, cannot complain.
