I'm looking to get a new one. Mine is pretty beat out of shape, and cannot handle much, heh. I hear good words about the new Toshibas, I also hear good things about the Thinkpads, but on that thought--I know people who've owned them and are not happy. Looking for one that is affordable. I would say two grand max, but I'm REALLY looking for something along the lines of $1500, less if possible. Opinions?
