Where are u located? What's your budget?
All 3 brands are great.
ASUS: I love their notebooks, but it seems the 2 biggest complaints from owners is a spongy keyboard and narrow viewing angles and on most LCDs. Not a dealbreaker for me, i always sit front and center of the screen, and the keyboard feel is adequate. They make the best reasonably priced ultraportables in the industry, and their ROG/G-series line is a staple with hardcore notebook gamers.
Toshiba: In my experience, their notebooks tend to be very reliable compared to offerings by HP/Compaq, Gateway, and Averatec(out of business). Toshiba's mainstream laptops dont stand out in any way, but the premium/business-oriented Protege models are excellent, Id say equivalent to IBM/and or Lenovo's thinkpads. Toshiba's Quosmio gaming/media notebooks come loaded with features and nice speakers. They're just look too flashy for my tastes.
MSI: Theyre a small player in the U.S. notebook/netbook market. From what I've read/seen, quality notebooks at a reasonable price, without any signature look or design. Nothing really stands out.
So, if youre not in a rush, the Asus 1215B should be out in a month. It would look much better if they used the white keyboard/interior layout of the 1015B. Otherwise, i would go for the HP DM1z
