Cannot Find a Laptop - Please Help

Asked 10 people which model should I buy and received 10 suggestions. Confused. A friend suggested Acer – though they do not have the brand value as other biggies in the market, but according to him Acer models are doing good.

My requirements are not hi-fi. A netbook or mini laptop could be good for me as I need to access internet on go mainly. But no netbook comes with optical drive :( except few from Toshiba I guess and they are too much expensive. If I had that much of money, I could buy Macbook.

Heard that Samsung is offering optical drive for free with its netbooks. Not sure about the performance of Samsung.

Any suggestion friends?
