In my opinion, Asus makes an excellent laptop. I have owned two and ordered a few at work.

Everything Asus makes is solid.

I built a PC in 2001 using purely Asus components, with an ATI video card (Asus now owns ATI as well).

That PC lasted until 2011, 10 years of solid abuse playing video games and installing terrible viruses from file-sharing sites and bit-torrents. It was used every single day. It still works today even, but the video card crapped out.

Really? I ll check for reviews of the laptops you mentioned...however some of my friends use asus and they told me not to buy asus or hp....

I personally prefer Lenovo. They are solid and very stable. A little expensive however not any higher than a nice Dell or HP.

If you're looking for a low profile then go with a Samsung.

I'd would most definitely go with Lenovo or Asus before buying any of the crap that Dell or HP carries.

This is one of the best laptop deals I've seen in a while.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+15.6%22+Laptop+-+4GB+Memory+-+320GB+Hard+Drive+-+Textured+Black+Suit/3677442.p?id=1218426416903&skuId=3677442

If you can live without a dedicated GPU that is... (which just means no gaming or high level video editing, 3D modeling, etc...)

$320 + tax, free shipping
Asus X54L-BBK2 Laptop
Intel Core i3-2330M (2.2GHz) 15.6" (1366 x 768) screen LED
4GB DDR3
320GB HDD
USB 3.0
WiFi-N, Webcam
DVDRW, 4-Cell
Win 7 Prem (Textured Black Suit)

For under $350 bucks, that thing rocks. Just replace the harddrive with an SSD and it will be smoking fast. An i3 is really all you need if you are just using it for work / school / web browsing. No HDMI-output, but o well.

Also the benchmarks on this CPU are awesome. alt text

I would check out Dell Hammad. Its Inpiron 15 or 17 R series is decent for the price. You can get an Intel Core i3 for around that price. It's a bit bulky, but depends what you want to do. If you want something light ... you're going to compromise on hardware...but you definitely want an Intel Core i3. Because its CPU supports SLAT -- which you need to run Hyper-V on Windows 8.

You might want to wait though until you can get the Windows 8 Upgrade deal. http://www.groovypost.com/news/windows-8-new-pc-upgrade-price/

If you can wait, I would spend a few hundred more and get an Ultrabook.

I will take a look at ultrabook n see. And my basic purpose for buying is work. So, specs matter as well...otherwise i am already using c2d that runs all the applications. But i didnt try installing windows 8 on it

If you didn't like the other one, this Laptop is also pretty solid.

http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230401

Note that the price was only $360 yesterday, plus the discount code, which brought it down to $330. It has slightly better stats than the i3. I would not pay more than $400 for this.

Asus A53Z-NS61 Quad Core Laptop
A6-3420M CPU,15.6" LED
3GB DDR3
320GB HDD, Radeon HD 6520
DVDRW
HDMI, USB 3.0, WiFi-N
6 Cell

The GPU is integrated, but it is a big step up from not having one at all. The ram is expandable to 8GB.

Here's the benchmark
