What is the best brand for a laptop that is reasonably priced? I am a high school student in search of a laptop. I've seen many laptops in ads for best buy and other stores that are under $1000. Some of them are as low as $600. I was wondering, for my purposes, would one of these laptops be good enough? Also, in 2 years when I go to college, will this laptop still be good enough? Finally, I was hoping to find a colored laptop, preferably red. The only one I've really seen so far is the sony vaio, which is way out of my price range. Any suggestions?
