    Interesting. I guess a lot of companies have jumped on the "cheap-compact notebook" bandwagon since the last time I've checked.

    Lenovos are supposed to be the sturdiest. This is according to my network engineer husband who tried to talk me into buying one, but I bought a Dell instead. It has been fine, but it's less than a year old. The CD/DVD burner/whatever drive crapped out in a matter of weeks, too, so I guess it hasn't been that fine--but they replaced it quickly and no questions asked.

    Also, if you want a pink one, consider buying based on quality (Toshiba/Lenovo/Vaio or whatever), and then get an adhesive skin to decorate the cover. I have this one:



    but you can get pretty much anything you want. They have suede-like pink ones.

    Oh yeah, the skins are nice. That er....leopard print one is pushing it a bit.

    I got the skin because I wanted a green Dell but they had a special on blue ones when I went to buy and I couldn't abide spending an extra 200 bucks for the green one. Heh. Then I found the skins and kinda fell in love with the Van Gogh one. I do kind of wish it was on a Lenovo though. My Dell is okay but I feel kind of dumb now for buying it so hastily and "against medical advice" if you will.

    Apparently the Dell notebook I'm typing this on and have had over a year doesn't work well, then.

    The one time I needed support, the call went fast and wasn't a big deal (my wireless router was the source of evil).

    Dell got better after about five years pissing off a lot of customers and making the necessary changes to dig themselves out of that hole.

    I'm actually more confused than ever.
    Contradicting opinions on just about every brand.
    The only laptop that seems to get consistently good reviews is the Lenovo T61, but it's so ugly, it breaks my heart.
