    Ok guys, it is that time again...

    My laptop has about had it... the screen is barely holding itself upright and we have had it for about 2 years...

    We need a laptop with better specs and preferably for less...

    SPECS:

    15.6 " screen
    2 G 800 Mhz Memory
    Intel Core 2 Duo 1.6 Ghz processor
    we paid $700...

    We would like to spend around that or less...

    So Dell has those back to school specials but the best laptop we can put together is still $818...

    Ideas? Other brands to consider?

    This one is a gateway would prefer not to go back...

    Mike A!

    I just saw an incredible hp over at best buy, dual 64 bit processor, vista 64 bit with a free upgrade to windows 7 when available, 4 gigs of memory

    500 bucks

    I also had my eye on dual dual processor (quad) with 6 gigs of memory, this laptop was 1200 dollars though I doubt the extra processor and 2 gigs of ram are worth that differance

    I'd go for the 500 dollar hp at best buy

    I just went to the bestbuy website and they don't show it online, I saw it in a store and I was tempted to get it even though my two laptops are just fine right now
