    New laptop?

    Hopefully within the new week or so I'll be purchasing a laptop. Consider myself a half assed tech savvy fella, but any advice on what brands to avoid or what ones are good would be appreciated. Looking to spend under 450. Basically all I'll be doing is surfing the net, downloading music, and netflix.
    Thanks on advance.

    for that price, I really cant suggest what I use (macbook pro) but I would suggest Toshiba or Asus if you can get a good price on one.

    I avoid Dell like I avoid the plague

    Agree with Abe.

    Toshiba and the lower end Asus will fit your budget. Don't take the low price with low quality though, these are two very solid companies that are finally getting the recognition they deserve. I got a Toshiba Satellite for my mom (forgot which one) about a year ago and it's still running strong. She doesn't do much except for email, light surfing on internet, and playing mahjongg. It was like $275 (on sale) when I got it.

    Went with a Toshiba satellite. Should be here in a few days. Nothing super but it should fit my needs.

    Nice. Toshiba makes great laptops. They last pretty long too and they really don't put too much bloatware either.

    Toshiba and asus are great brands as well as lenovo. I have an hp and its great except it gets way too hot if you do anything strenuous, on netflix it runs around 205
