Which laptop

Alright guys I need a laptop main reason being for school but partly because I'm tired of using the iPhone's web browser

What's a good one? All I would use it for is school (Microsoft word,Power point, etc..) I download alot of music, and surf the web alot.

I've heard Sonys are good? Anyone use them?

I'm a college kid so something reasonably priced
