    right, so i figure i'll get a laptop in time for college (fall of 2003), and i was wondering what to get (in terms of which brand, i know the type of specs i want). i've heard dell and tosihba are good, maybe an alienware. i'm going to go for the best laptop avalible (well, as long as its not much more than $3,000).
