Where can I buy a laptop for under $500 to use just for the internet and microsoft office?
Heh...a decent laptop for $500? You'd better start scouring eBay for a used one.
good laptop is subjective. You can find a laptop for $500, but you'll only be able to do minimal stuff on it. I got my daughter an Acer for Christmas. AMD Turion 1.6Ghz, 1GB ram, 80GB hard drive, 15.4" screen, DVD RAM for $650. That was about as good I could find for the price at the time.
You might can find one for around there at Wal-Mart, but you get what you pay for.
Dude, that "minimal" laptop is a Lamborghini compared to my 300MHz Pentium II Gateway.
haha. It's pretty on pace with my desktop.. but I know I'll replace it in 3.5 years when she goes to college, maybe I'll get it as a hand me down.
