Yeah, definitly stay away from celeron. Usually a dissapointment. You really need a Pentium M, best mobile chip. I love AMD to death, but they need a good mobile set up. The turions are good, there just arent enough of em to shop around. Anyway, check out Acer and my personal favorite, Sony. I love Sony's laptops.

I think your best bet for that price range is probably dell, though I'm not a fan of them.
