A decent set of headphones and a portable digital modeler (Line 6 POD, Korg Pandora, Boss Micro-BR, etc.) or MFX pedal would be a good idea. They're relatively inexpensive, and in the meantime, you can save up for a serious amp...If you feel you actually need one.

Define "bad laptop"?

But a digital modeler is probably the easiest solution.

Buying an inexpensive amp with a few effects won't be satisfying for very long. Good is more valuable than loud.

Hmmm...where are you located? What do you play? Are you willing to buy used? And what would you consider to be your actual budget?

The Line 6 POD with headphones could be a good idea depending on whether or not you want to wear headphones. A Peavey Vypyr VIP could work, too because it has a headphone jack as well as a speaker, so if there are times where you want to play amplified without headphones the option is there without having to purchase a studio monitor. Also, there is a USB line out for your computer which you can use to record. the Vypyr comes with a decent array of effects that will get you started.

My first piece of "home gear" was a Roland Cube modeling combo amp. Small but rugged, 20 Watt solid state - absolutely enough for home use, very decent sound for the price, built-in effects, headphone output, external source input (for mp3 players & stuff), completely independent from a computer. Even some famous professional musicians use it. Check it out, dude.

Peavey Vypyr amps have the best modeling and widest selection for effects of anything i've tried. I recommend getting the best one you can, and take the footswitch into consideration as well if you want to use the wah or multiple effects at once.
If you have a home sound system, I've been eyeballing the digitech RP1000 and RP500. They have some great tones and a MASSIVE selection of them.

Brilliant amp these. I got one for home practice, and ill tell you what, it well and truly surpassed all my expectations. It does not sound sterile at all, actually sounds warm, and you can make them sound great.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.
