    Question Best laptop for under $500?

    Now that my tax return has finally arrived, I am in the market for a new laptop (finally!).

    I just have the following prerequisites:

    - NO Toshibas! Grr...
    - Nothing from New Egg! Grr...
    - The total price (including tax, any additional warranties, etc.) must top out at $500. Because...well...that's all I have.

    Suggestions?

    You're not asking for quality for under $500 if you aren't willing to buy from NewEgg. Try TigerDirect.com.

    Best Buy only has Toshibas within the price range you're looking for right not.

    I won't buy from New Egg again since they sent me the defective Toshiba and refused to replace it.

    Dell's got a deal right now on the Dell 15" Inspiron for $499. It's just web and personal use, right? You're not using it for heavy gaming or as a movie studio?

    If so, it would be plenty of computer for what you need.

    Limited time offer, but there's always some offer out there.
