I want to buy a new laptop to run a small business.?

I am also interested in buying Microsoft Office 2007 to help me with productivity. I am proficient with Office 2003 and heard that the functionality is about the same but the layout is different. Is Access 2007 a relatively good database or should I look in to something better? Like I said I am already familiar with 2003
What is a good laptop to buy that is reasonably priced (PC).
17" is too big to carry around, I was thinking 14" or 15"

hp’s are good, lenovo’s are better. you will find no better than lenovo for business, disregard anything anybody says.

i find that macs aren’t that good for their price. my macbook 2.4ghz is more of a novelty item, i actually enjoy my vista laptop more. macbook pros are just macbooks with a 8600m and a bigger screen, but for $700 more. i like the windows version of office so much better, it’s not even funny.

if you’re proficient with office 2003, don’t upgrade. it’s really different, and i don’t like it.

while lenovo’s aren’t the sexiest things around, they’re inexpensive, gritty, and can survive a good fall. in fact, it actually has a sensor so that when it senses an increase in g’s, it turns off the hard drive. it also has a crash recovery button.

upgrade the HD of the laptop listed to 320gb, and another gig of ram and you’re set.
