View Full Version : Need a Laptop ASAP

11-07-2005, 06:06 PM
I am looking to buy a new laptop at (duh) the best price possible. The only conditions I have are:
a) It needs to show at least a 1600x1200 resolution;
b) I need it more or less straight away (3 or 4 days wait time hopefully at most and the sooner the better).

I would only use the computer for very simple applications like poker, e-mail, internet, media player, etc. so obviously I figure I can save some money by not buying the computer with the best technical specs. I have Best Buy and Circuit City in the area and of course access to online retailers. Any suggestions on what/where to buy??

If you have a Compusa close you can look there.

Online you could try www.tigerdirect.com (http://www.tigerdirect.com) and get overnight shipping, of course you will pay for it though.

Only buy thinkpads. I just bought an awesome refurbished thinkpad from this guy: http://stores.ebay.com/ThinkPadWorld

I saved a lot of money, the computer looks new as far as I can tell, and paying $19 more for 2day shipping got it to me 3 days after I paid him. I am not affiliated with that guy. I'm just happy with my new laptop.

If you want really good resolution, you need a UXGA screen.
