So I will be in the market for a new laptop here within the next few months. I've had an HP Pavilion g6 for the last 3 years, and I absolutely HATE it. I'm not to savvy when it comes to techy stuff, so any recommendation is appreciated. I don't use it for much, other than Netflix, internet search, and sometimes music & pictures. So space is not a huge concern. I just want one that doesn't have a menstrual cycle every month. Seriously.

There are many brands to consider, and the top tier in PC are Dell, Asus, HP, and Lenovo.
Although you've had a bad experience with HP, it more so has to do with the operating system than the hardware. So form factor and design is what differentiates these brands from one another.
In terms of specs, here's what you should look for:
1. Screen Size (Your preference, 13" is a good size)
2. Screen Resolution (1920x1080p)
3. Memory (4gb RAM, no higher than 8)
4. Processor (Intel Core i3, no higher than i5)
5. Hard Drive (Flash or SSD, capacity is secondary)
If you follow these specifications, then you'll get a computer that satisfies your needs without paying more for more features you'll never use.
I'd go with a Dell since you don't like HP. Dell's branding has improved.1
