Default Shopping for a laptop

Will this ever end.

I was ready to buy a Sony Vaio SR, tried to customize it on the site, and found most options missing. Turned out it had been discontinued and they were getting rid of stock. I called Sony and they said the Model S is replacing this, but they are not selling it in the U.S. (except at Best Buys where I can't control how it's configured). And their other models didn't seem to suit me.

So I hopped over to the Lenovo and started reading their forum. It looks like they set up the hard disks with a small C: drive and a large D: drive so the one-key restore can replace the system on C: and the user is supposed to put data on the D: drive. [Note, after looking further I found out I was wrong about this]

Dell it out for me. I bought one many months ago without looking at it in a store first. The screen hurt my eyes so much I returned it and paid the restocking fee.

So, should I look at Toshiba next. Someone said that's the way to go, although I've heard bad things about their quality.
