Laptop Halp!

This is where I ask the multitude of readers of Fistfight At The Arthouse for help;

I’m going to ask for recommendations of computers/laptops/netbooks. I’m not going to get a goddamn Mac, but I need a laptop so I can write, listen to music, read Comic Book Resources  and Wired and LOLDogs, watch videos (like mothafuckin’  “Spaced” on Hulu.com!), use Twitter, and save stuff (I keep backups on a separate hard drive and everyday flash drive, but that’s secondary copies, not a primary one)…the usual.

I’ve considered getting a simple netbook and shift to keeping vast tracts of stuff on separate hard drives at home (hopefully later on in life I’m thinking about shifting to a netbook and desktop-at-home setup), but right now I need to be able to reach everything within a single machine as opposed to plugging into an external drive to get to stuff.

Right now I use a Dell laptop at home, it’s an Inspiron 6000 that’s a few years old with a busted corner of the screen.  I like Dells, though I’m open to switching to say, a Vaio (which the GF uses) or an HP (though my previous laptop was an HP and it gave me a lot of shit).

So, go ahead and post comments here with recommendations!  It’s not a decision I’m going to be doing right now, but these past few months have made me realize that this is something that’ll probably be happening sooner or later.
