    My laptop was stolen about 6 months ago and I'm on my ancient PC (i built it myself like 4 years ago)
    I've decided to buy a new laptop but really don't know what to get. I formally had a dell 600m and thought that it was ok...could be better. I lost everything due to some random equipment failure that Dell coulnd't fix.
    I'm a grad student and do alot of databasing and simple data analysis. I also want to be able to do some gaming and need a dedicated video card.
    I'm trying to avoid buying a Dell again...but don't know anything about the other laptops that are out there.
    Portability and reliability are key (i can't afford to fix or replace it if it breaks:sadwavey:)

    You're going to get a lemon here and there. Worry less about reliability and more about a total backup solution. It might cost a random limb to get it fixed if it's broken, but you can't put a value on data.
