Good Deal?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am in the market for a new laptop and was looking to spend less than 699 the less the better, I'm looking for something simple that I can do work on, surfing the net, movies, all the basics. Small light, good bat life. Not really looking for anything great and don't care to game on it. I have a machine for that hints the budget on this. Anyway I am looking for suggestions on the subject, let me know.


Here is a couple I found on Dells site.

Do you have a office depot near you? THey usually have sales on cheap laptops (around $550-600) every so often, usually every other week. There was one last week: duel core, 160gb hd, 2gb ram, 14.1in screen for $550.
