    Where do you live? If you live in the US, go dell all the way. Cheapest and most reliable service, as you can expect your laptop to need repair at least once a year in normal use. I will post for you one suggested system in a minute.

    I suggest Dell's refurbished website for a laptop because they are cheapest and best with returns. Search the net for coupon codes too. Here is an idea of a good one:

    see here for the whole inventory of refurbed goods

    this one is a little out of your range, but it has a 64 mb gfx card

    I am telling you the Dell refurbed option is a very wise choice, I got one that was totally new. What dell calls refurbished is 90% new as the cost to restock is more than to discount the cancelled ones.

    see here for coupon codes

    See if you can afford one of the new Widescreen dells. They are probably around a bit over your price range.

    I wouldn't buy anything but Dell or Gateway. Unless you want gaming, in which case I would get Alienware ( ) lolol
