    No future shop in US i think well i havent seen any anyway but yea all i really need laptop for is web browsing and I.M no gaming and stuff...
     
  8. if you need the basics, try and see if the dell outlet has something with very few features. im sure they have bare bones computers there. they just have to. its intentional for those who want to "build up"

    still, newegg or just save up

    Check ebay, there are tons of really good deals there. There are several ebay stores available throught the site with people who have lots of feedback and you know can trust to get a great deal. Be smart though!

    I would get windows xp not vista cuz thats nothing special or even thet good. U will have an easier time getting windows xp 4 that price.

    If you need a laptop, keep saving. 2GB of ram to run vista will cost you a 1/3 of your budget :lol:

    If you can get a desktop.... There are REALLY good deals out there.

    Uh-o, I hope this doesn't spring another Mac/PC argument

    But i agree, for a $400 laptop XP would be better. I don't think a $400 laptop is going to have the graphics card or Highspeed ram to run Vista very well.

    XP is better right now due to vista's current software compatibility issues (which is normal).

    as for macs... all i can say is mac'n'trash.
