Best laptop for under $2500?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Under $2.5k

Needs to not be huge (use it on airplanes, confined spaces (datacenters, etc.))

Needs to be able to compile, burn CDs/DVDs and surf the web at the same time.

Been using a Toshiba M3 for a while now, and really like it, but have pretty much beat it into the ground.

Should I stick Toshiba?
What say you?

Check out Averatec... They're really nice and come in smaller sizes (10" widescreen, etc...).
