Best laptop for watching DVDs

Title pretty much sums it up. I'm curious to know what people think is the best laptop out for watching dvds? I'm seen DVDs on Dells and Compaq latops, and personally, I thought the Compaq looked and ounded much better than the Dell. The Dell was good, but seemed way too dark. Anyone have any opinions? Thanks.

I got a Dell Inspiron 5000e, and so far the display is a S-TFT, and its bright , Maybe you should try out the Ultra TFT!
I heard the quality is very good for DVD playback.

Don't forget about Toshiba, they make a pretty durn good laptop also.

You might want to try and get one with an NVIDIA chip or ATI chip in it (3d chipset). I believe NVIDIA is the nForce, fastest graphics chip in a laptop to date.
