I've heard mixed things about HP, but they do make a few machines with core i3/i5 chips at the 12-14 inch size which is getting harder to find. Dell has two models (if you count the vostro line). Almost everything at that size ships with a crappy netbook cpu now (AMD's fusion chips or something slow from intel at 1.3Ghz). I think it really depends what market segment you're talking about. HP workstation systems are on par with Dell (both are not great). At 15-17 inch sizes, there are many alternatives to HP.

As far as low cost goes, Toshiba's lineup is better on price. I bought a $300 laptop 2 years ago that's still ticking. I didn't care about speed as I have two desktops for that, but I didn't want a netbook POS.
