I need a new laptop for mostly schoolwork, but also so I can play some games now and then. Most of them are fairly graphic intensive games. I don't so much want specifics on an exact machine but more on your view of the brand that has the best price for the performance. I know Dell is always up there, but who else would you recommend? I was thinking of Sony's Vaio machines. IBM is so damn expensive, so I don't even want to consider them. Thoughts?
