Get an HP. Best computers you can get for the price.

Hell, probably the some of the best computers you can get at all.

No, they're not.

+1 too faulty. My roommate's HP's specs are better than mine and his computers zonked out three times since September. And his dvd player doesn't work either.

There's a whole bunch of factors that go into the quality of a laptop. Most people are short-sighted and only look at the numbers, which is why they're always bitching about Macs. Too bad they don't look at the build, or the hardware infrastructure, or the exact hardware model, etc.

Asus is the best Windows based computer for the money and the design. HP and Dell are mediocre. Alienware and Vaio are the worst for the money and quality. MacBooks have the best value for higher budget.

Oh, I don't know about Canada because I'm pretty sure Newegg doesn't ship to Canada. Maybe you could ship it to a trusted friend in the US and have him/her ship it to you.

Definitely avoid HP. Owned one, it sucked. For some reason, bought another one. It sucked too.
The setup:
Fender MIM Fat Strat (midnight wine)
Fender Blues DeVille 410
Digitech GNX3 Multi-effect
Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric

The only Vaio worth getting would be the Z series. It's like Sony's MacBook Pro.

I would buy a decent laptop with a really good processor and get your own sticks of ram and install them in the computer. That's what I did and it worked out.

MacBook Pro.

I like how it tries to copy MacBook but fails.

Chasis is aluminum. Okay. Too bad the actual build structure is still the same old traditional crap that is the source of mechanical problems. The "fly-on-the-go" graphics switch is admirable, but short of MBP's specs: 9400 onboard, 9600 dedicated. It's a step up from traditionalism, which everyone else minus apple is still tied to, but it's not good enough.

I actually thought the dell 1520 was a real real good laptop ! It performs amazingly well for the price. Too bad they don't make it with the same specs as they used to before. Granted it is not the prettiest laptop out there but it was a gem.
