You have $400 for a laptop! What do you suggest?

    This is for a client of mine and she is wanting to get this today. She has $450, but I figure we better save some for tax. She wants a laptop and this is her very first computer.

    Thoughts?

    Check Best Buy, they have a couple of sub $400 laptops listed this week.

    Do not buy " Mini lap tops" as they are waste of money. Look in E bay for a used mac note book it will be far superior to any sub $400 PC laptops.
