    I'd honestly spring for a macBook if you can. I know it's a stretch but take it from somebody who had to go through two $700 computers in three yearsto learn that lesson. I haven't had a problem with my Mac since I got it which was 2 years ago.

    macbooks?

    Since when did those go for anything less than a G after putting in anything extra? If the budget is $700 go for a Dell or HP. They've got pretty goodstuff in that range.

    you all are dumb. stop suggesting macbooks... they don't go less than 800 usually. i'd go with a dell.

    I knew NTers would be coming in here to say 'Get a Macbook' when OP clearly stated he only had $700 to spend [​IMG][​IMG].

    OP, I'm probably going to say either get an HP or Dell.

    Im actually planning on buying a mbp when they release a new version of the 15 inch (i always hear they like to upgrade after every 6 months so i dont wannashell out 2800 and have an old version)... But in the mean time i dont mind settling for a pc laptop thats why im not looking for anything too fancy, justsomething thats the best bang for the buck

    I got an extra Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 here - I guarantee you can't break it.

    I actually have a few extras, I need to clean all of these up and reinstall OS' so I can get something for 'em.


    This is NT, so here are the pics:

    look into fujitsu.............. Ive never had a problem with mine, and I like them a lot

    HP is nice too, just make sure it has enough memory and a big enough hard drive and stuff if the OS is vista or you will have problems with it for sure

    XP is the %@*@ compared to Vista .....(for most laptops anyways) but its tough to find a new computer with XP loaded on it instead of vista
