Toshibas actually have a great rep as far as laptops go. IBM and Dell is good too. I would suggest, however that you get the Pentium IV instead of the Celeron.
Do stay away from HP though. They got printers down, but their computers are crap (unless you get the very high-end models), and God forbid you ever need to download any drivers from the website; you'll be lucky to find any available.
Cub fans, by consensus, are the best in baseball. Year after year, in good times and (mostly) bad, they turn out in vociferous numbers, sustaining themselves with a heavenly ichor that combines loyalty, criticism, cheerfulness, durability, rage, beer and hope, in exquisite proportions.
