Lenovo Thinkpads are the best. Sonys break down very easily, usually right away when the warranty expires.

I learned the hard way that laptops are portable, not powerful and if you try to make them powerful they suck. Get a lightweight reasonably powerful laptop and save the games for a desktop.

Lenovo (aka IBM) ThinkPad get my vote for being the best in the market. Size-wise I think 13.3" is adequate.

Apple MacBookPro with Bootcamp comes in a close second

Dell and Sony are plain shit. HP boards on that line..

Here is a story about going to college an laptop choice, right now we are all in our 3 1/2 year in.
3 of my buddies listened to me at the start of college and bought powerbooks, all 3 of still have our computers and have had no trouble at all. One of my buddies that went dell it lasted 8 months before the HD died and he lost all his data, they sent him a new HD to install himself... I had to do it for him and I dont know how an average none computer type person could do it by themselves, it later died again and then the graphics card would randomly decide to start or not, ended up buying a macbook just recently. Another friend of mine bought a Dell but bought a cheap one and was forced to upgrade in 2 years ended up spending a total of $2,600 and still has a slower laptop than my 3 1/2 year old powerbook which cost less than that. I had another friend with an HP which the HD failed but HP made him send it in to get fixed.. Ended up taking 3 weeks for it to get fixed, other than that still running. I know 2 people who bought sony vaio's both lasted about 1 1/2-2 years before having to be replaced with thinkpads. I know 4 people with thinkpads and all have been solid, one person even spilled a coke on the keyboard and sent it in to get fixed and was not charged..

So anything form Lenovo is solid I would stay away form anything besides that or an Apple. One thing about apple is when you have a problem you can go to the store and speak to an english speaking person in person and get help, they will also teach you how to use OS X if your new to it and answer just about any question you have.

alienware? i voted toshiba. they have the best sceen quality, good for school/small business/ media. Sonys are overpriced, Dell is just alright, HP is a nono and Lenovo I'd take it for its touch screen (good for drafting/ taking notes). been there done that, now I have a mac

Sony makes cool computers (I have a UX UMPC), but Lenovo is the best, end of story.

How about Asus? Half the companies listed in this thread have their laptops made by them.

Dunno how people use the same laptop for years on end. I never had one for more than a year, year and a half. Technology moves too fast.

Never had problems with Dells, two or three, I forget. The Sony I have now is a mistake. I use IBM, now Lenovo, for work and they are solid.

I've had about 20 laptops in 10 years, I've still got (looks at shelf) seven here in the house - 4 IBM ThinkPads (600X, 701C, TransNote, X30) and 3 Sony VAIOs (C1 Picturebook, X505, TZ150). I love the build quality of the ThinkPads, but every time I look for something in a subnotebook, no one's been able to touch Sony- my Picturebook has been my travel laptop for years. The Sonys have also been quite solid, and they're regularly rated among the top brands in reliability; I've never understood why rumors persist that they break all the time. Heck, most computers are built by the same few companies in Taiwan and Korea, so everyone's build quality is pretty much the same.
