I got me a Sony Vaio VPCE

Its good looking, stable, and the wifi works well.

The only hiccup so far is when I let the battery get to zero and it shut down, it screwed up the setup somehow, and I had to use the restore disks.

Its good for watching Tv and movies, but the sound is a bit tinny.

If you're getting a laptop wait a little bit longer for amd to release the new gen of a4-3400. The a4 is clocked at 2.7ghzX2 Lleno cores (no turbo) integrated with an HD 6410D clocked at 600mhz with 160 su. You'll probably pay like $550 for the laptop with 4g of ddr3 ram, 500gb hdd- 5.2k rpm, 15.6" LED screen, 600 mhz vc (APU's graphics use system memory), at least 5 hours of battery, and possibly usb 3.0. The fusions are amd's pride and joy right now so the quality of the product is going to be pretty high with a relative low price. Also these chips use much less resources resulting in impressive temperature control.

Lastly don't get too caught up in the brand. Chinese companies bid for the production of computers. The same company that puts dells together produces apple's notebooks. I must say though, I have only heard negative feedback about sony vaios, specifically cosmetic issues. I also have heard a lot of problems with toshiba hard drives. I personally have always enjoyed my HP notebook/netbook.
Be more interested in the brand of each individual piece of hardware rather than the name on the cover.

With all of the military cutback over here in the States, Aerospace contractors are selling surplus laptop/desktop computers for pennies on the USD.

Government requirements are to pull the hard drive out and crush it prior to sale.

This leaves a potentially functionally excellent computer with only a new hard drive and some software.

Prices vary, from $50.00 USD to $150.00 USD..

I refurbish several every week, and this pays for the odd pint..

I purchased two laptops this am, (One Dell and One HP) and one HP workstation. (Core 2 Duo, 4 gig ram DVD RW, 500 gig HD etc...

I have used Linux, Unix, and of course, the DVD restore disks.

The Mfgers will normally sell the restore disk for $20.00 USD plus shipping.

On a side note, Acer owns Gateway, E Machine, and they were the OEM for IBM Thinkpad prior to IBM selling the operation to Lenovo.

The local areas you all live in may have similar recycle efforts..

Check around..

I tried to look into this but couldn't find anything. What did you use? Google shopping or anything?
