    So I am working on that free laptop site and not sure which laptop I should go for. Or if I should just get the one with the best resell value to just sell and keep the cash. Any help/opinions would be appreciated. Although none of them seem that great, I like the vaio a bit better than the others though if one of the others are easier to upgrade and crap that would be nice too...

    The apple iBook is nice... I mean it's real cool, but I know nothing about macs.

    I don't even need a laptop right now anyways, so I'm selling my iBook.

    Free laptop website? That sounds like a scam and a half.

    Get the Toshiba. The popular name-brands clog their computers with tons of crap you'll never use.

    Thanks for the replies/votes guys! Still not sure which would work out best but if I get one just to sell then buy a more powerful one it would be easier lol.


    deusexaethera, Yeah, I will be getting one (out of the choices above) from Freepays laptop site. Same guys that own freeipods.com and have sent out 20,000+ ipods in the last year or so. Check out their other sites on freepay.com ;). I have actually gotten quite a bit of their freebies already but the laptop is their biggest site.

    I am also getting a free ibook from another site. More info/proof here: http://www.congablast.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=5311

    Apple FTW.

    Although it may be worthwhile waiting until they get the Intel chips into the iBooks (in the new year, rumor has it). They should be a bit quicker than the current G4 models.

    Nice links, thanks much!

    As for as the choices, I would have to choose one of the laptops to resell...I assume the ibook would have the best resell value though...?

    No catch really. As long as you follow the rules and meet the requirements you get your freebie. I have personally gotten thousands of dollars worth of free stuff from these types of sites. Everyone in the process makes money so its a good deal for everyone ;). Check this thread for more detailed info on that: http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=2206745
