The design gaffe with static discharges causing machine lockup is still being worked out and too many machines exhibit this issue. No need to risk your loss of time.

Almost any Dell or Apple.

Either company is a safe bet. We also use many HP/Compaq units.

Check IBM laptops

In reply to: LAP TOPS ANY RECOMMENDATIONS

Robert, left out IBMs. They are robust and you rarely hear of too many problems with IBM laptops. They do have problems mind you but IBM tends to care for them tenderly. The cost is par with anything Dell, HP, etc can offer so consider them as well.
