I'm not quite sure if this is the appropriate place for this or if you've been asked this a million times..but I'm looking for a new laptop. I currently have a Dell laptop. I recently had to reformat and reinstall Windows. Everything is all wonky still missing lots of drives and I keep just going in circles and I'm just fed up with it and Dell. I had a Compaq growing up and it was a pain as well. So now I've gotten leery or Compaq's/HP's. I just want a nice, dependable, fast computer. I'd like to spend $1000 or less. I've been leaning towards Toshiba. Any thoughts or suggestions. I'd just like some input from some people who really know what they are talking about. Thank you!
