Where do you go to get cheaper notebooks?

My wife wants a notebook for her BDay, but we aren’t planning to spend a lot on each other’s Bdays this year. She only needs it for word processing and surfing the net and such. It needs a wireless card for our network, but that’s about it. I could, in theory, even put Linux on it, which should mean I need less processing/RAM power, right? But I’m not opposed to getting XP. Ideally, I’d like to spend around $300, but I could go more if necessary. Again, this is not a gaming machine or anything.

Tech Bargains

Also look for used laptops on eBay, Craigs List, etc.


Not quite as cheap as you want, but alot of bang for your buck regardless.
