I would never buy anything other than Toshiba. I owned one in college and the thing was bullet proof. Only thing that went wrong with it was the first week after owning it the power button messed up and was fixed immediately. I sold it to a co worker here at work 5 years later and it is still going from what I hear.
Now my recommendation. I just purchased the Toshiba Satellite X205-S9800. These were made as mid to high end gaming laptops. 17", full num pad, Dual core processors, can support 4 gb of ram, dedicated graphics, the whole shibang.
I just got mine for $549.99 + $40 shipping (got raped on that), but there was only 1 left.
Every once in a blue moon google dallas frys ad and check out the online shopping ad, they have some killer laptop deals every once in a while. They had the X205-9898 or something like that (the SLi graphics one) for $700 one day, but they were gone really fast.
