I have two Tosihi's with 17" screens, that I paid much more for (on discount), a similar system as you note.

There are other manufactures that sell cheaper?

It's a fair run about system, but not well suited for gaming.

I've had no problems with either. Both running VISTA OS.
The only easy day was yesterday.

I don't currently have a laptop (I prefer desktops, much easier maintenance, upgrading, repairing).

I just took a look at your link and the price quote is a bit misleading, since it doesn't include warranty or shipping. These are substantial (IMO) charges on what appears to be a $500 base price.

I think I'd go with Dell for a cheap laptop that would perform reasonably for everything other than gaming.
