I'm using a Lenovo X200, works well with JAWS. Have used HP, Dell, Gateway
in past, been happiets with this machine, and my last HP. 
A general rule of thumb I've adoptted and seems to work, look for the
machine that has the internal specs you want and less buzzers and bells on
the outside. You want power and capacity, you don't need marvie graphics and
lots of pretty touch pad controls. 

Most sound systems are up to the task these days so long as they are
mainstream, and good accessible volume  controls are handy. 
Have to think about the graphics card a bit, but again that is becoming less
of an issue as most mainstream units work fine with JAWS.
For me a big deal was the comfort with the keyboard size and layout. Some
laptop mfrs get pretty off the wall in the keyboard layouts, some little
bitty keys, some things located where it would make no sense unless you can
see it, etc. that is one of the real strong features of the Lenovo, it has a
fantastic keyboard, full sized keys, logical layout etc. Dell's are pretty
decent as well, depending on the machine. Toshiba has been getting a bit
squirly with their layouts as well as HP. 
Bottom line, decide what you want and get your hands on one to feel it up.

Good luck.

Acers work really well with JAWS. So do HP and Toshiba. It's best to shop
around, contact your JAWS dealer and enquire on any known issues on the
laptop(s) you're interested in, and so on. Hope this helps. Good luck in the
research.

Hi all. I am using Jaws 11 and I'm thinking about purchasing a laptop
computer. This will be my first one so I'm going to be taking my time and
doing some looking around. There are a number of different brands of
computers out there and my question is, What brands work the best with Jaws?
Any help would be appreciated.

Geoff
