Yeah, what do you plan on using it for. If you just wanna use the internet, microsoft word, and maybe play some minesweeper then just go with a baseline dell or whatever. Amazon usually has some pretty good deals and can also narrow your search down to specific price ranges.

I'm not that read up on the latest laptops, but I'd say go for at least 1.5gb memory, and as large a hard drive as you can get for cheap. Other than that you should be set.

Edit: BTW, Macs can be lovely as long as you've got the money for one.

macs are amazing
worth the money

problem is the money is a LOT
2 ducks and a rabbi walk into a bar.
The rabbi enjoys a nice drink and the ducks are shooed out so that health services aren't called in.
The day proceeds as normal.

Macs=Nay. Value for money isn't really great.

Nein, you're correct. But I'm not a huge fan on the Mac OS, +gaming and Macs don't seem to go that well.
