Hi, I'm new here, and I'm looking for some opinions. I have a Dell 1 Ghz (almost 3 years old) desktop and I'm looking to replace it with a laptop (trying to avoid another Dell, I've had bad experiences with too many Dell computers). I'm a college student and on a limited budget and unfortunately I was scammed out of $900 on Ebay and have yet to get it back. I'm looking to spend about $1000-$1300 on a laptop to use for digital photography, email/internet, word processing, possibly some other school-related things, watch DVDs, etc. I'd like to buy from Circuit City or Best Buy so I can do the 12 month interest free finance. I originally was considering the Toshiba A15S129 since it is so cheap but I decided I'd rather spend a little more and get more features/better quality. I've been looking at the Sony FRV26 and the Toshiba A35S209. I've also heard good things about HP but don't know which models to look at. Reading endless reviews is just making my head spin! I know I want at least a P4 2.4 Ghz, 256 MB Ram, DVD-ROM/CD-RW, and a 15" screen. I'd really appreciate any suggestions or advice. Thanks!
