It depends one what you want to do with the laptop. Same with any computer. What are you wanting it to do? Once you've answered that, then you can start looking at the different options available.
It doesn't make any sense to buy a $4k laptop that you're only wanting for basic computing and internet. It similarly doesn't make sense to try and cut corners and get a cheap laptop, that you want to be able to play games on, or do cpu/graphic intensive work such as 3d modeling, or video production, etc.
