I built this tower back in 06 and it's gotten me this far. Again we are speaking of my home system, I have an Ultra Book for mobile use.
The only attraction of a laptop or notebook or even smaller machine is the portability.

If you don't need portability on your home system, go with a desktop. Much more powerful per dollar spent, more customizable when building, more easily and cheaply maintained, and upgradable when you need to in the future.

If you are going to buy it, you'd choose from the usual suspects: Dell, Lenovo, Asus, Acer, HP.

If you are going to build it, you can start a thread in the "PC Custom Builds" section
