Lenovo makes some great laptops for great prices.

You should be able to find a Core i3 or i5 for that price range.

Also, if you happen to be student and need a copy of Office, check out http://theultimatesteal.com

I would recommend staying away from netbooks. My personal opinion is they are worthless.

Who wants Windows 7 Starter?

Anyway, Toshiba makes a good product. I would stay away from Best But's warranty and pointless add ons. They are the kings of having a good price but adding on insane amounts of extra charges.

Here is a great Lenovo from buy.com. Free shipping plus no tax.


If you buy online, look at buy.com and newegg.com
