Need a lappy for $600 or less

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi there, looking to buy a laptop for my sister. I want the best one you can get for $600 or less preferably. I have already been to the dell website so don't refer me there please. Looking for something with at least 1gb of ram, and with XP.

Thanks in advance!

I'll second that. I have the Vostro 1400 and i LOVE it. It's just the right size...a little heavy, but you can't beat the price/performance.

Depending on what your sister needs the laptop for, theres a good deal going on at Bestbuy right now. Compaq, 1.79 core 2 duo, 160g hd, 15.4 screen, 1g ram. The 1g ram isnt exactly the best, but I'm on it now (comes with vista, xp optional from what they told me) and it's great for business. Walked out after taxes for ~470.
