Hello All
I am recently in the market for a laptop P4 with dvd burner. However, I am so confused with the choices out there. I have a Compaq for many years now and she runs like the first day I bought her, but i hear bad stories with Compaq lately. My first choice was Dell 9100 but I heard its too heavy and has a noisy fan and a short battery life. Now my choices are among Toshiba A75-S226 , Dell 5150 or Compaq HP (which model I dont know). Can anyone recommend any of these models or any model that has what I want(P4-DVD burner, reliability) Please HEEEELP MEEEEE!

PS. I am a Canadian but the prices are so much cheaper and the choices so much more in the US, is it a good idea to buy from US or not (i.e considering the warranty ant etc
