    I was curious what OT's advice would be for a good laptop.
    I'm looking to stay within the $1,000 mark, I know that's not the greatest budget ever, especially for a "notebook", but I'll have to make due.
    I want something sufficient, good quality monitor viewing.
    Any advice?

    I owned a laptop for about a month...then i sold it:) for the price you pay you don't get the performance in return (at least the performance i expected)

    For under $1000 you might not get much, but i think it can be done.

    I would avoid dell like the plague -- especially a cheap dell.

    If you're not a gamer, I would definitely agree that an iBook is the way to go.

    I would avoid anything that is not a MAC or DELL for that price.
