Re: Friendliest Laptop??
It just depends on what you mean by a "friendly laptop" :-)
I don't have a big experience but I worked with dell inspiron and Sony
The dell models have a quite good price/performance ratio but the VAIO's
your only choice to get all the chicks' attention.
Seriously my last vaio's got an internal "winmodem" that's not supported ...
Dell's are cheaper and you can buy a well supported PCMCIA afterwards...
