What is a good price for a laptop

I have been quoted NT $49,000. For a ASUS M2E. The specs. are: P4, 1.8ghz, 256MB, 40G HDD, it has a DVD+CR combo. Is this a good price? Also is ASUS a good laptop?

I got an ASUS and I am very pleased with it though you should note that most laptops are OEM products, i.e. different on the outside but more or less the same inside. Anyhow, that’s around the same price my company paid for my laptop which seems to have the same specs.
