What is the best laptop out there for the best price?

I am sick of my Dell laptop and will never own another one. It freezes all the time and the battery won't charge anymore. I need a new one, but I am not sure what to get, so all you tech-savvy moms...what laptop do you have and why do you love it/hate it/how much did it cost you/where did you buy it???? Thanks!!! BTW...I need a computer that I can use for school which means all Microsoft Office programs and super fast internet...if that helps you.

  • ACER sells a good one that is pretty inexpensive. round $399. I loved my acer but I needed a new one so I gave it to my hubby and I upgraded to an expensive one. :o) The ACER has everything you could need.

  • BTW, most new laptops come with a 60 trial of Microsoft Office. After 60 days, you must purchase the program which you can do online.

  • We have a Dell and are highly disappointed with it, too. We also own a couple of HP's, but they are outdated now. Hubby just bought a Gateway and loves it! In fact, his previous laptop is a Gateway and is still awesome so he gave it to me....he just wanted newer upgrades. Laptops are his "toys" - he gets a new one every 2 years...lol. But I would suggest you look at HP and Gateway.
