I do alot of paperwork and internet surfing. On occasion I play n64 roms. I watch a lot of movies too. I will not settle for another gateway. Battery life is cool but my computes are plugged in 99.9% of the time anyways. I heard lenovos are good but the guy at bestbuy insisted that I should get an Asus instead. I like the screen at 15.6 inches at least. Speed is important but dependability and durability trump anything in my book. I want it to be solid. Although not crucial, I would prefer something I can pick up from a store instead of ordering. I cant spend more than 600. Any suggestions? what Should i look 4? what brand(gateway/acer is out of the question, would prefer not hp because i have had terrable experience with their printers. all else if fair game)

Asus and Toshiba are reliable brands in laptops, so is Lenovo. Something like this is great value since your getting that much processing power for that price! :thumbsup:
