To laptoppk: about the "best laptop".

1. I deleted your post because it had a rather unnecessary link to a particular shop. You might find the best for you isn't sold there.

2. There is no "best laptop". That fully depends on the intended use, and you don't tell anything about that. Laptops are different in, for example,
- weight
- size
- screen size
- graphics card
- disk size
- display quality
- processor
- price
- warranty
- service
- connections (like Bluetooth, HDMI, Firewire)
- having a lock
- DVD/BlueRay
- battery life
- keyboard
- OS (Windows XP, Vista, 7 all having different editions; Linux; Mac OS)
About the only constant factor between different laptops is that they have WiFi and wired Ethernet.

Better start with the laptop chooser mentioned in the first (bold) thread in this forum.
