    My g/f's b-day is on July 12th and I've been trying to get a laptop for her. My friend had a 3.2Ghz and was all set up to sell me that but things fell thru and his wife has custody of it now... All she really does is surf web-pages, chat with YahooMessenger and IRC, watches lots of videos, and every now and then gets a bug to Play Roller Coaster Tycoon or The Sims... If anybody has a laptop which is 2.0+GHZ with 256+RAM, 30+GB HDD and some sort of decent video capabilities, please shoot me some specs and a dollar amount, my cap is at about $300... PLEASE HELP

    Thanx for the advice, but the fact of the matter is I only have $300 extra bucks... any more than that and it takes away from other plans I have for that day...

    Not trying to be negative, but you'll need a miracle to find a decent laptop with the specs you wanted that actually works and has nothing broken on it for that price. I paid $50 for a Compaq Armada 110, it was made in 1999 and it has a 733mhz Celeron and like 192meg of RAM, and a 4mb Trident video card. It had a dead CD drive and some other small hardware issues, in addition to the battery not holding a charge for more than about 5 minutes. $50 for that is a good price considering it's a laptop and it pretty much works.

    I'm not saying you won't find one. I'm saying it won't be easy.

    Good luck.

    Yeah, just make sure it's not a Dell. Gateway and HP are okay and they'll be just a little more expensive, but stay the hell away from Dell.
