Could you help me find a good under-$600 laptop?

#1
I am finally in the market for my first new notebook and would love to have some help from my good buddies here! What is the best computer in the under-$600 range. This will be more or less so I have a portable computer when staying at hotels, with family, or just to keep in the bedroom.

What it must be:
  • Sub-$600
  • Powerful enough to do the more basic functions like web pages, word processing, casual games with minor 3d elements (Zuma, Wik, Puzzle Quest), and 2D console emulators
  • Wireless G
  • Four USB ports
  • DVD Burner

What would be a plus but aren't absolutely necessary:
  • Expansion slots
  • Multiple cores!
  • Built-in camera
  • Glossy screen
  • Wireless N
What doesn't matter to me at all:
  • Battery life
  • Size
  • Weight
  • Accessories
  • RAM (as long as there's room to install my own! Cheaper that way)
  • Operating system (got a couple Vista licenses to play with)
