Best Bang for the Buck Laptop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am looking for the best bang for your buck laptop that would be able edit and create word, excel, and powerpoints. Also browse the internet at a fast pace. Also be able to handle multi tasking.

The idea behind getting this would be to have access to my desktop while ln the go. I am a strength and conditioning coach so I will need to access the spread sheets while I am in the office.

Does it have to be a new laptop?

I have a IBM T60P that I really like, I paid $300 shipped for it on ebay a few months ago. It's a business class laptop, very rugged and well built. The best part of this laptop is the 15" 1400x1050 IPS LCD! Check it out the seller is still selling them, unfortunately the price has gone up though.
