I was looking at the online reviews for the Vista notebook that I had my heart set on, and my heart sank. I heard almost nothing but negative reviews; one actually said to buy another model (complete with the actual model number). So now, I'm trying to find another notebook that's affordable and has higher, more positive reviews. Meaning highly recommended, and I can afford it (trying to keep it at $1500-ish or lower if I can, preferably $1000 or lower). Preferably Vista Home Premium. Does anybody have any suggestions for me? I'm still gonna keep my eyes and ears open. Please help if you can. Thank you.
PS: I may be using it for video editing, so the better the specs, the better I can do that. I appreciate any and all help anyone can give me. I don't care what the manufacturer is, so long as it's not a Dell (sorry Plaz and Gdovin) or a Sony; I hear they have the worst consumer satisfactory ratings on the market. Again, help is appreciated.

Just to add more information, I did more research. I decided to compare HP with Gateway. I love my current XP Gateway because it always bounces back. Here's what I am currently looking at; let me know if it's any good: Gateway MT6707. How is it, any good?

Dell can get you a laptop for $650 but, forget about Vista Ubuntu is just as good but free and a little harder to use.

Don't use vista it is extremly buggy and slow (I have it, I know) Either use XP or get a Mac
