Alright, gotta get a new laptop, which one should I get? I just read an article stating Asus and Toshiba have the lowest failure rates of laptops while Acer (the brand I have now) and HP have the worst. Oh, and don't buy a laptop from WalMart or buy a NEW warranty - they SUCK.
Okay, so here is the one I like the most-

Good price, 2 year warranty through Costco, who I'm told has excellent warranty service, up to 12 hours battery life, small enough to carry around while bigger than a netbook. It has plenty of RAM and a decent HDD, don't need a super video card because all I do is surf, type papers, and do multimedia. It also has a DVD RW which is very nice since I still burn DVDs with movies, comes with Windows 7, Altec Lansing speakers and all of the inputs and card slots I need/like.
What do you guys think?
