    I want to buy a laptop in the ~$500 range. It can be used but in good condition. It will be used for internet, DVDs, general stuff and low-medium requirement games. I know a good amount about desktops but know shit about laptops. Any one have some good advice what to look for and does anyone have one for sale.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    I bought my IBM T23 on eBay for $550 plus shipping a few weeks ago. It does the stuff you mentioned but im not sure about games since it only has a 16MB vid card. If you do find one, be sure to ask if there is any warranty left. Mine runs out in May 2005.

    define what games you want to play? For older and non-intensive gaming it should be pretty easy to find a notebook. However, if you're expecting to play HL2 with any spunk then I don't know how happy you'll be.
