    I wanted a Fujitsu laptop for a long time -- they always appeared to be high-quality and often received very high reviews. I'm not a fan of Sony and its proprietary, DRM trojan-installing methods, so I wouldn't support their products personally. :) I've been impressed with the newer HP offerings so that might be a good option, too. As for Acer, I've long associated them with more budget (read: cheap) products and probably wouldn't heavily consider a laptop from them. I haven't looked at Samsung laptops before, but I love the TVs they produce so I'm sure the thing has a good display, at least.

    So those are my thoughts based on brand alone. Have you checked CNET for reviews of those models individually?

    I think the best place to start is to try and define what you will be using the laptop for now, and what you may use it for within the useable life. Once you know what that is, you can more clearly identify what you will need in a laptop with regards to hardware and budget.

    I've added the basic specs of the laptops with my first post....just to give a rough idea of what they are like. :)

    I like the Fujitsu as well.

    As for HP it always seems that their battery life is never any good.
