    I am looking to get a notebook and i found one that i can get for a pretty good price...
    Its a:

    IBM

    Intel Celron 1.8 GHZ
    128mb Ram
    40x CDRW
    56k modem/Eithernet card
    Altec Lansing internal speakers
    20 Gig HD
    Windows XP

    Im not looking for a top of the line computer, its basicaly used for surfin the net, photoshop, and Word processing, i rarly play computer games so that doesn't realy matter.

    Any one have experience with a similar setup? What do you think, Good or Bad....

    Depends if 'pretty good price' is really good at all. Compare your price with some current Pentium/AMD XP machines on the market. We realize it's just for surfing and photoshop, but the stagnant feeling of waiting for a page or file to open up in photoshop will grate on your nurves.
