Heh that's funny I was going to say the exact same thing, there are *a lot* more HP laptops out there then any other brand, mainly due to price point and best buy (and the like), many people still want to 'touch and feel' a laptop prior to investing in one.
Anyhow, all laptops or parts are made in China, and from that at least 70% are produced from two different manufacturers in China, one of which staffs over a million employees.
SO brand *really* doesn't matter that much ..
Here are the questions to ask youself.
1) How much do I want to spend ?
2) How long will I use it until I replace it ?
3) How much will I use it ?
4) How rough will I be with it ?
5) What will I be doing on it ?
