    So I'm in the market for a laptop and was wondering if someone could post a few links for me to scope out. My price range is $500-$700. Thanks!

    500-700$ for a Laptop? You'll get a Windows XP machine with 512mb of ram, a 60-80gb hdd and a Pentium D, nothing better. Maybe a little worse. Really that's not a lot of money considering 700$ for a desktop isn't that much, that much for a laptop is ridiculous. Please save up more and give us a new budget

    Disregard the kid above. He's quite clueless.

    In January I bought a NEW Compaq from best buy for $499. It was a very good computer until I had a fit of drunken rage and now I have to get a new laptop. And my desktop I spent as much on my DVD burner as I did for the computer. $500-700 is not a RIDICULOUS price to spend on a laptop for school. Thanks alot for your positive attitude!

    That's a nice list, I'm going to have to save that. [​IMG]
    Does anybody have a black-friday-list site? I remember getting a link from last year but I can't remember it.

    iritegood: bfads.net (as mentioned in my post and Urza's) is great. Slickdeals.net is good too, but everything in their BF section is already covered on bfads.net.
