The keyboard of my laptop just totally broke. I need a new laptop asap. I'm on my phone right now. I for this laptop from walmart, but was never satisfied with the quality of the laptop ( manufracturing ). Although it was a brand name laptop. Where can I get a quality laptop? Best buy seems to expensive! Any ideas?

Buy.com Computer Hardware and Accessories, Memory, Storage, Printers, Laptop, components - Buy.com and NewEgg.comNewegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! are both reputable online companies from whom I have purchased items.

Didn't get my iMac there, though

Hey, Thank you all!

The Computer won't even start, since the keyboard is broken, f_m.

I would actually like to go to a store instead of buying it online. Anybody knows a good retailer ( NOT wal mart ) ?

I bought my laptop through Costco. It's a Toshiba, the price was good, plus $50 off coupon and it came with MS Student whatever......MSWORD/OUTLOOK. I got free shipping with a 90 day return policy at Costco. I also got a good deal there for my Canon multi task printer. My membership more than paid for itself.

What price range are you talking about? They all sell the same types of products if you are looking for inexpensive models. Office supply places like Office Depot and Staples also carry computers, with a few lower cost models. Although I don't think they are any different than the ones at Best Buy. Costco has them, but generally their models are more expensive ones, but you get the longer warranty.
