Anything besides HP!


What do you recommend? Something that will last more than a year. Is ACER any good? Will be used to video editing and internet. THX!

I agree with killerx525... I recommend Toshiba a lot. Asus are great, but come with a higher price tag. Stay away from HP, Gateway, and Acer. Dell would be ok as long as you get it FROM DELL and not Wal-Mart. Just my two cents.

Oops. I meant "ASUS" in my 1st post, not ACER.

I'd say my budget is $600. I'll look for a Sony. I've never had an issue with anything SONY.

Sony seems to be generally overpriced, try looking at a Toshiba or Dell laptop. Of course, if you want blu-ray, Sony is probably the way to go.
