Hey Sickbimmer,

I've been working as a IT developer for years and have also helped run a computer store for my friend fixing all types of computers.

Stay away from: HP(conpaq), Dell, <<-high repairs
Toshiba was great years ago, but they changed their strategy to go for high volume sales and they stink now.

Consider: Gateway(same as Acer, Emachinces) << best bang for your dollars and are good for all needs of a high school kids. Maybe not for hard core gamers but can work.

Lenovo(old IBM): These are rock solid but are not flashy. May not work for a high school.

something good under $400 will be hard to get and might have to be a HP.

Consider these one

Or this site for Lenovo Friends and Familys.

Look for Ideapad.

Thanks for the advice guys. Turns out the parents went with this (HP). Nice feel with the aluminum body. Not my first choice though. Oh well. I tried.
