Are there any particular brands that you like/don't like? I remember HP used to be crap, but that was long ago so I don't know if it's still true. Samsung has a bad reputation for appliances, but their TVs and monitors are fine; IDK about their laptops.

Wife likes Lenovo because that's what her employer gave her. I favor Dell because I've owned so many, and I liked all but one of them. But I see many deals on HP, Asus, Samsung, and Acer, among other, less familiar names, and I have no experience with any of those.

Wife is not enthused about reincarnating her Toshiba. I might ultimately fix it anyway and give it to a nephew -- could be a good project for the xmas doldrums -- but it's off the table for now. The hard drive has plenty of space, so it's most likely dying.

they're basically interchangeable imo (probably all manufactured in the exact same Chinese factories)
