I dont know if this is the wrong section, but theres no non-building PC section... so i'll post here. Please move, dont ban... please? Scratch that, just read the stickey. Ok, so my moms computer is almost 7 years old, and its runing slow as a turtle set to the slow setting. So, someone find me a laptop, for under $500, that will runs XP/ Windows 7. So, i have researched it, and i found the one i like, you find the one you think would be good, and tell me! (Used mostly for buisness... quicken quickbooks that sort of thing; ocasional DVDs, but nothing fancy). Ok, so thanks alot FP, let the search begin!!
Hm. Word and stuff would work on a netbook. No DVD's though unless you were to obtain an ISO.
Dear mods, by the "obtain an ISO" bit I mean to put the DVD in another computer and transfer across. I am not linking to or hinting warez.
I dont want a netbook, i want, pretty much, the most powerful, best looking, fastest laptop for under $500.
Toshiba Satellite L300-20D
* Intel Celeron Processor T1600
* Genuine Windows Vista Home Basic
* DVD-RW SuperMulti drive (Double Layer)
* 1 Gb DDR RAM (800 MHz)
* 15.4 inch Widescreen TruBrite XGA (1280 x 800) High Brightness display
It won't play any games, but it's OK for business stuff and the occasional DVD.
From what I've heard, Acer laptops are shit.

Thanks alot guys! Keep posting :D
scroll to video cards get the ATI 4330
479 best deal you'll find
Also, a memory card reader would be nice, she has a digital camera, and its kinda large card...
The one I posted has a 5 in 1
I have an Acer, I got it because it was cheap, (It was the cheapest one with dedicated graphics), it has blue screened a few times in game, and I don't take it to many places, so the hinges aren't much of an issue. However, I'm saving up for a build now.
