the only requirment is that the brand or company has to have really good customer service and warrenty incase i break it. it has to be top of the line and kick ass. i want all the nerds in my school to orgasm thier pants. i dont plan on hardcore gaming or anything but you you how that goes. i want something that will last me a long time and have a long battery life for school. i'm interested in graphics and the sorts. i would prefer it to be light too with a big screen. max amount is 3000$ those new tablet PCs look cool, thoughts on those? and just for kicks, what is the best lap top if money where no issue? GO!
