I'd recommend these two (especially Acer) as cheap brands. Compaq is a little better than Acer and their notebooks look pretty cool ATM.
You make a pretty convincing point there. "They are Macs", what wonderful evidence. The Macbook I tried out worked fine for me, ran very cool, very small and had an excellent battery life. The Lenovo R60 looks absolutely fantastic so far, and under my price expectation too.
Edit: After further considering, both of the R60 series are out of the question. To get a Merom model (which I want) I would need to get a fingerprint scanner (which I really, really don't want
), and the R60e isn't exactly what I'm looking for.
