    So my Laptop has officially died.. Any suggestions what type I should get next?

    Just looking for one for general use and the odd gaming now and then because to be honest who doesn't love a bit of gaming!
    I would really like a reliable brand and prefer to stay away from Macs, they just confuse me too much!
    So any help?

    I found this one which seems to be quite nice. A Toshiba 15.6" Notebook
    F750/066
    Toshiba F750/066 - Intel Core i7-2670QM, 15.6", 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, nVIDIA GT540M 2GB(DDR3) w/Optimus, BD-RE, HDMI, TV Tuner, Windows 7 64bit Home Premium, 1 yr warranty.

    You should get a desktop. Laptop's aren't really built to last forever.

    Packard Bell/HP laptops are really good in my opinon. Their appearance and performance is outstanding
    I would'nt recommend a Dell though. Those things fall apart like Blackberries.

    Thank you! My last 2 laptops have been HPs and I have had constant battery and overheating problems with them, so was going to try something different!
    thanks for the heads up on the Dell though

    No problem! ^.^ I see what you mean about the overheating with the HPs, I could probably grill bacon on the bottom of my HP

    I can't offer reviews there unfortunately, I've only had experiences with Dells, HPs and Packard Bells Maybe you should read some online ratings and such?

    Every HP laptop I've ever owned/seen someone own results in the charger/battery failing after about a year
