    im currently looking for a laptop and have 500 dollars. i really want a mac, but it seems 500 can only get me a crappy ibook. what do you recommend for a good laptop. used or new. i want something i could game a little on, not something crazy. or should i save up to like 700?

    heads up, if you want a decent gaming laptop, DONT buy a mac. You would have to save up a bit of cash

    or depends on what games are you talking about. I hope your not thinking of playing Crysis

    I just got an HP with:
    -14" screen
    -pentium dual core 2.4gig
    -4gb ram
    -webcam
    -lots more extras
    for $599 at bestbuy.com! my advice is to save up a few more bucks and wait for the right sale...search your local sale ads, as well as the internet, dont rush into buying anything... if i would have rushed i would have gotten less of a computer for the same amount of money a couple weeks ago!
