I found a really sick Lenovo for 1200, but the problem is it only comes with the manufacturers warranty and there is no way to get an extended warranty on it. its a dual core, 2.4 GHZ processor, with a ******** of memory and such. But the damn thing is ugly as hell.
i always saw lenovo as a very pricey brand but they're having a sale right now and i'm really tempted to get one. i really wanna wait until companies start offering a free windows 7 upgrade though. apparently after june 26, best buy will offer it.
There are a number of Quad core notebooks out there in the market. They're all just pretty massive. I mean there's some core Core I7 notebooks aswell, but those will cost a pretty penny.
And as for the Lenovo Thinkpads, I love the look of it. Simple and effective.
I use a Lenovo Thinkpad. My brother owns two. They are excellent in my mind. They are durable, simple and do the job. I've seen a lot my friends who have their monitor look as it will disconnect because it is so flimsy. The T42 I have is Solid as a ROCK.

Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.
I'd say option 1 is the best way to go. The little speed increase the CPU won't be that noticeable, while 4GB of ram has pretty much become standard the past year. Are you looking at the U330, because I've been eying that one aswell.
i was favoring the slightly more pricey hp but wanna know why some of you guys dislike it.
I dislike HP/Compaq due to the customer service. If you do buy, I seriously hope you never have to call them. Their support system is horrid, if you ever have to send them your computer expect it do be ~2-3 weeks for repair time. Plus they "tattoo" some parts so if you replace it you will get a "CODE PURPLE" which the only way to fix it so send it to HP/Compaq so they can retattoo or to install a new OS. This "tattoo" basically links the OS with the original parts of the computer [motherboard mainly] and if the "tattoo" isn't the same then the OS won't boot. You'll be at CODE PURPLE!
Also, Option B is I get my ****** HP Laptop fixed again, and just use it for class, and then buy a desktop computer, which I hear are far better then laptops.
If you do decide to go that route, it would be best to buy all the necessary parts and ensemble yourself. It's not hard at all, and it's very basic, connect this with this, ground yourself [touch metal before touching the part]. Building a computer is very easy. By building it yourself you should be able to a) get a better PC for the money or b) save money for a PC with the same specs a name brand carrier would be offering. Plus many parts come with lifetime warranties, my GPU and RAM both did. If you think you can build it I can look over TigerDirect for parts and try to make a few recommendations.
