    Thumbs up New laptop suggestions? Budget: $260.

    Sup guys, I was thinking about getting a new laptop. But I don't have much money to spare. Can you guys give me suggestions of the best laptop you can find for $260?



    1) Site has to be reliable
    2) Has to be NEW
    3) Has to be at least 15 inches or higher.
    4) Has to have warranty

    I would like it if it was 4 GB ram and at least Core 2 duo. But anything close will do, since it IS only $260 >_>

    Every good suggestion will get a +thx

    Google Compaq Presario, they have a couple good ones, although they're about 300 bucks for 15", single core 2.3GHz and 2GB.
    Won't find a 4GB dualcore with a 15 inch display below 500$

    I'm 100% sure I've seen some pretty decent laptops a while ago on ebay etc, but I was too stupid not to buy them at the time.

    But It's just for all around browsing/photoshop/a bit of gaming.
    I will wait for more suggestions and see ;P

    I recommend the Compaq Presario CQ50 Notebook PC, i can run about 3 windows of wow which is fairly good for a laptop, you can see my laptop info on my profile here on D3Scene, and i picked it up at Wal-Mart for 280$
