I am looking at purchasing a new laptop for work, and the idea of purchasing it on-line is appealing. I have looked at Best Buy and Circuit City, as well as a couple of the smaller ones. Question is, do any of you folks know of a site that is reliable and cost concious?

To be honest, the only company that I would buy a computer without actually seeing it first is Dell. My family has bought 3 desktops and 2 laptops from them in the past 3 years, and they've all worked beautifully.
Don't buy from Best Buy -- I got my first computer from them 5 years ago (a lousy consumer-grade Packard Hell), and I hated every minute of it. Had to spend $200+ just upgrading it so that it could run fast enough for me. Ugh.

Last June I bought my system using http://www.dell.com Buying froim a site like that I would recommend, and say you can trust whatyou are going to get. Any problems I had were quickly resolved by the customer support teams as well.

I would strongly recommend a Dell. Currently I am using a Dell Dimension 4400 2 months old bought directly from Dell.
Shipped directly from the Dell APCC Factory in Penang, malaysia to my doorstep which is like 8km away oh but actually it went through the hub of the transport company so much more than 8km.
I have two laptops one Dell and one Compaq. But i would always buy laptops and in the future should build my own unless it is going to be frequently used and at top-notch performance like my current Dell dimension.
