looking for a laptop for christmas

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been browsing around for a good laptop for Christmas and don't have a clue what to get. I've owned an HP for about 4 years now and its been complete junk from day one so I'm not interested in another. I am stuck between several brands: Toshiba Samsung Asus Dell Lenovo and Sony. My price range is 400-600. It will basically be used for the internet and netflix at work because I do everything else on my tower. I guess my biggest concern is reliability and good heat dissipation. Thanks ahead of time for feed back.

Here is what I have been looking at:

Acer Aspire Timeline X 4380T (I think it's this model). One of the models (it has a 15 inch equivalent) has a GT540 and a i5 (sandy bridge) for $700. The 14 inch model is $700. The 15 inch model is slightly more expensive. Can last 8 hours on power saver settings. Go read the notebookcheck.net review.
