    Can anyone recommend some good laptops/laptop manufacturers for under $1500 NZ (about $800 US). I was looking to buy one for a friend but don't know much about laptops... any help would be great.

    I'd recommend the HP/Sager laptops, they're a bit more than 800, but they're the bang for the buck.

    toshiba's make excellent laptops. they made a good choice.
    2.01 -> 2.71 -> 1.50 -> 3.40-OE -> 3.52m33-4 -> 3.90m33-3
    now let's see what this baby can do!

    Toshiba's have hardware problems after a year. Mostly hard drive failures occur with Toshi's. Don't get me wrong I have a few before they're great and all, but they've had HDD issues for years.

    i know its not a great brand, but i absolutely love my gateway tablet. i gave like 1000 dollars for it a couple years ago.

    I don't mod much anymore, but I do give good game advice.

    After a year my Toshiba Satellite's hard drive failed. The sound card also died, but Toshiba uses an all-in-one card so it was too expensive to bother replacing.

    Check out the Sony Vaio N and NR series. I bought a really quite nice N365 for $700 and I love it. I am not into much gaming on it so not sure how that would work. I like Vista once you get it tweaked it's nice. Checkout notebookreview . com. for any and all info.
