    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.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
