    I am looking to buy a new laptop for my work and personal use. I searched online and found tons of laptops are available with latest technology. I don't have much knowledge about computers. Can anyone recommend me the best brand to choose from and any website where I can buy it at discounted prices? My budget is under $550. Well, I found some good laptop deals at

    Advice and suggestions are welcome.

    Possible answer to your question, I bought a Toshiba laptop for under $500 at

    Office Depot and it has served very well so far it is about 3 years old now and still

    rock'in. it really depends on what you need though mine has 3GB Gigabyte SDRAM and a 160 GB HDD. let me tell you,I have been very happy with my Toshiba.

    hope this helps.
