Help in buying laptop??

by evetteb-2009 / February 14, 2010 11:20 AM PST

I've been looking at loptops for sometime now but I'm not sure which one is the best buy. I have a dell (5yrs old) and a Toshiba A215 (which overheats, battery is completely dead and the power cord is giving me problems). I'm not a gamer, but I like to surf the web, do research, work stuff, facebook, etc. I'm looking at purchasing a laptop but I'm not sure which one to buy. I like the the Gateway 7915u or the Toshiba A505-s6005 but I'm not sure which one is the better buy or is there something else out there within the same price range. Many of my friends tell me to go with HP, Dell, Macbook, etc and I'm so confused because I know each of them have there own preference which may not be the same as mine.
