I always feel bad when I open a third tab, since it covers up Mugi on my K-On! theme. Not that I have a K-On! theme or anything...

I'm using a Toshiba laptop right now, an it's awesome. I think H/P (including Compaq) has good ones too, but I'm not sure. Dell may be okay too.

HP's are very prone to overheating...at least the ones that were out a few years ago were. I know a few people who have problems with theirs overheating. Their somewhat new Envy series seems to be quite popular - they are thin and lightweight. Only thing with those is the battery doesn't look wonderful...the 14" comes with a 4 cell battery standard. The 15" comes with a 6 cell, which is pretty standard among laptops of the size...but I'd definitely go with the 9 cell. Longer battery life is better and they do degrade over time.

Toshiba seems to make solid laptops, I know people that use them and they seem to be pretty good.

I have a Dell and it's great. They seem to be all-around pretty good. The Latitude series (expensive, more targeted for business) is very durable. The Inspirons are a very good value for the money (especially if you customize them), and the XPS can carry some serious punch. I know a ton of people with Dells and nobody has ever had a problem with them.

I have a Dell laptop, and personally, I think it's great. Never had any serious problems with it, although it can be a little temperamental at times (I just reboot it and that seems to work). My only complaint is that it's sort of heavy, and the battery life isn't that great (it's decent enough, though, and I keep it plugged in most of the time).

If you're thinking of getting a mini laptop, stay away from the EeePCs. My school bought a ton of them for us to use, and let's just say that they're absolutely horrible. The screen is tiny (about 7") which means you can't really multi-task because there's not enough room on the screen, the keyboard can come off entirely if you're not careful, and some of the keys just don't like to work.
