    It all depends what you want the laptop for, I would recommend a Toshiba. Not had any problems at all with mine over the last 6 months.

    I suggest you to go for dell notebook PC which is cheap and gives a better value for your money. Go to the dell website and locate your country. Configure the notebook online and order. It will be delivered at your doorstep :)

    Well if thats your price range, it all depends what you want.

    Dell offers some very good good laptops at around that price. Also you can get some good ones from HP, their pretty cheap. I would probably recommend Intel over AMD just because it is more reliable even though AMD is cheaper and slightly faster depending on the model.

    In order to get the right price, you should check out my blog post on what affects price:

    Intel Core 2 Duo is the best chip I would say for notebooks/laptops at the moment. I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 myself and its not missed a beat in the last 6 months. Dell laptops are very good.

    You want to use the laptop for multi-tasking and gaming, so I would pick an Intel laptop with a T5200+ series processor, or an AMD FX-60 processor. You will need a dual core processor, at least 2gb of ram (since vista wastes so much ram by all the default services), and 256 or 512mb dedicated graphics card (if you want the laptop mainly for gaming).

    If you are an enthusiastic gamer, I suggest you buy a desktop.

    I have a Dell XPS (laptop) that costs $1,349. I purchased it on Saturday from BestBuy. It is built for multi-tasking.

    Dell makes nice laptops, so does HP but my money is always with IBM, or what is now Lenovo. I have had several IBM/Lenovo computers both for work and for some light gaming (world of warcraft) and they have performed as best as I could have hoped. If you dont have any reservations about buying a used laptop, an old T-series thinkpad is a great deal. If you are looking for newer, Lenovo is where its at...they are all easy to upgrade and maintain. The manufacturer of the processor is not as terribly important as all the rest of the components and try to stick to 1gb of ram or higher, it is a very noticeable difference when upgrading from 512 or lower.
