    I am looking for a laptop for less than $900 or so. Something in the 14.1 inch screen area. Not going to do heavy gaming or anything... just surfing IMing and using MS office. Any recommendations for the best bang for the buck would be great. :hsd:

    http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=3896250 these are all 15.4'' screens, but the price is right for what you're looking for. 900 is on the high side for basic use.

    look for similar specs on tigerdirect with a 14'' screen. should be a core 2 duo, 2+ GB ram, 160GB+ hdd space, DVD burner, wireless G or N, etc. but the 15.4'' deals in the thread are better IMO

    Here's one: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3860509&CatId=3984

    I have a coupon for 30% off a Dell XPS. Could easily bring one down into your price range.
