    Default Need advice on a new laptop computer.

    Looking to spend about 5 to 600 on a laptop. I have a Dell desktop now and have been pretty satisfied with it so naturally Im leaning toward a Dell, but if there is anything out there that i should be aware of please let me know. Im thinking 3GB of RAM and 320GB hardrive should be plenty. Im going to be installing alot of music on it. If anybody can recommend the least I should have, Id like to hear your advice. Also on warranties and stuff like that.

    While walking through Wal-Mart yesterday, I noticed they had a lot of Dell laptops on closeout in the price range you are looking at. As usual, the availability in each location may vary.

    I picked up ours (Toshiba) last year on a closeout for about $800, marked down twice, once from $1200 and then again from $1000, and have been very happy with it (Outside of it having Vista on it).

    I dunno, I have a Toshiba Satellite P105 (with Moja...er, Vista) that I got - almost two years ago now? Anyway, I beefed up the memory to 1.5 GB, but I still have times where I'm listening to Windows Media Player or iTunes and it starts acting like I'm trying to run a 386 (sound starts breaking up, things creep to a crawl, doesn't type all of the keys I hit, etc.) plus it shuts down out of the blue sometimes, I think when it overheats (don't know what laptop would be best for that issue). I keep it propped on my desk (when I'm in my office) to try to help that, and it seems to work, but it's still annoying when I forget or use it on the kitchen table or somewhere and it shuts down and then resets the BIOS date to 2010!
