Default Need help finding a labtop

Ok I need your help to find me a good notebook at a good price. I can only afford around $700 to $800. Is the Intel Celeron M good to get. I don't really do heavy stuff on the labtop though, so I don't really need a really fast notebook, just a normal one is good enough Thanks

uhhh...... guys, do you forget about newegg.com or what??? I have looked at Acer and found that Newegg got better deal for Acer than that one but the Samsonite carrying case looks freaking nice though. Thanks all

So you want to pay an extra 110$ for a 200mhz speed boost and an extra 256kb of cache? Weren't you looking for a basic model to save some cash?


Everything from the newegg one is included in the TigerDirect one...

why do you ask us what laptop to get, say you wanna save some cash, then when fm finds u a good one for a good price, basic laptop, you pick another one and say its better, even though it costs more...

yeah guys I think the one you showed me is a good for the price, but I heard some people say the Intel Celeron M is suck BIG TIME, they said the Intel Pentium M is worth it to get. So what do you think, should I spend $110 more or save it for memory upgrade and just get the other one

Celeron D's kick ass, I never used an M so I can't comment on it.
