Best brand is subjective and you'll have many different suggestions if you give it time.  Personally, I prefer Lenovo (IBM) and Dell.

I recommend purchasing something with a 3 year warranty and from a MAJOR vendor.  Also, be sure to get enough RAM. For my reasoning, see:

You'll probably want a Dual Core laptop... that should be among the newest technologies available.  And get a 4MB cache on the CPU if you get an intel chip.
