    Hey all,

    Going to law school at the end of August, so I need to purchase a laptop. I've narrowed my choices down to the following:

    Toshiba M35 series - the ones with the 15" WXGA

    IBM T40/T41

    Both use Centrino processors and seem to have garnered fairly good reviews, at least from what I could find online.

    The problem I'm having is finding a place to buy the Toshiba. The IBMs can be had for approx ~1400 on Buy.com and elsewhere but I can't find the Toshiba for all that cheap. Any idea where I should purchase from?

    I doubt you'll find either for very cheap. I'd be more inclined to purchase from manufacturer rather than a reseller, the reseller might not offer the same levels of support.

    My friends have always had good luck with Toshibas, don't know anyone with an IBM laptop, and I personally own an HP, its solid :bigthumb:

    School regulations require a PC, as odd as that sounds. I'm sure that is 100% binding, but I'd prefer a PC anyway because I am wholly unfamiliar with apples.
