My wife has the need for a laptop, and I have been looking at them when I have the time.
I went to Best Buy and had this one in hand, http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Lapt ... Id=9963892
and was going to purchase it, when one of the geeks walked up and tried the hard sell of the warranty, and then the idea of them building the restore disks up for me at a fee of $59.95, telling me that when you are trying to make the restore disk(s) you only get one shot and if it doesn't work you are screwed and that to get the disks from ASUS they are around $100 or whatever. Talked me out of buying the computer, at least of buying it from that Best Buy.
If anyone has purchased a laptop lately and has either positive or negative feed back it would be appreciated
