First decide what your needs will be with this laptop and go from there. Not every laptop is suitable for every tasks. I would hate for you to spend thousands on a top of the line gaming laptop only to surf the net and do some spreadsheets... That would be like buying a Ferrari to drive to the market that is 5 minutes away.

Apple laptops tend to be more expensive but a lot of people seem to like them. Their OS is robust and well made and the laptops themselves are thin, sleek, attractive, and modern. That said, you can find a comparable Windows laptop for much less and it will do everything you need it to as well. Here are some basics of what to look for.

1. Hard drive space. The faster the better. Some laptops will come with SSD (solid state drive) that will make your machine lightning fast.

2. Memory. More the better. For a modern laptop I would not recommend anything less than 8 gigabytes of DDR3 RAM memory.

3. I shouldn't even mention this since all laptops nowadays come with built in WIFI adapters.

4. Do you plan on playing video games that may need some high end graphics? If so you will need a laptop with at least 1 gigabyte of Video memory. This alone will make or break your budget. Some gaming laptops can cost nearly $3,000.

5. Do you need additional software pre-installed and bundled? This will add to the cost as well.

My screen stays black when i turn my computer on, its a mac laptop and everything sounds like its running fine, the screen just wont come on.

Try hooking it up to an external monitor. If does work on the monitor you know you have to replace the screen. I don't see a model of what type of mac laptop you have, but most parts are pretty easy to replace and cheap to buy on auction sites.

Problem with charging the battery, the contact in the notebook does not seem to work all the times, like a false contact and does not charge the battery

This is a really common problem, which can only be two things: the connector on the power adapter wire or the connector inside the laptop. If you're lucky it's the wire and you only have to buy a new power adapter. If it's in the laptop then often it's actually a part of the motherboard, which is expensive and very hard to replace. You should take the laptop to your local Apple store for verification. Good luck!
