I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a good quality laptop at a decent price. I have narrowed my search down to Compaq or Dell. I wanted a laptop that will more or less replace my old desktop and not really be carried around on a daily basis (although it will have to be taken with me when I travel) but weight isn't the main problem nor is battery life. I just want a good deal. Having spent most of yesterday looking around I feel more confussed than befor eI started - there are so many options. What are the pitfalls of having a friend get me a laptop in the USA and bringing it to the UK for me?
