I am a college junior and need a laptop.want to only speed in rang of 500-600 dollars..and which laptob is best? toshibal? dell?
I have no clue? how would internet work? which is the best place to buy to have to only pay low monthly payment?
Whoever answers is , Thanks! You know your computer. I would like hear from a computer genius/if possible..that knows enought about getting a great laptop.
From Apple you can get a student discount and i would suggest a MacBook (white) as it is easy to get your head around and sets most things up its self. i will put a link to the educational discount
look for something on there called MacBook and it should be White, Apple also do monthly payments of lower that $25 a month

You're going to get several different answers to this question but I'll put my .02 in...
Dell sells fairly decent refurbed laptops with limited warranty on ebay for $200-300. Because laptops tend to hold their value fairly well and their primary purpose is to be portable you can usually resell them for not much less then you bought 'em for when you're ready to upgrade to a better unit. Call it climbing the ladder...
Now, depending on what part of the country you are located in - I will usualy track laptop sales at places like Fry's Electronics for anything they may be promoting at the time (like this Toshiba they have on sale this week for $429).
Keep in mind that the best prices on laptops (and PCs for that matter) tend to occur in August or September when school is going back into session. I've purchased base level laptops with pretty good speed for as little as $350 brand new during those times...
As for a monthly payment schedule, that's a little different, as I tend to purchase in cash most of the time I wouldn't have much info on financing at many of these places although Fry's does offer a Fry's Card which may or may not allow you to make monthlys on your purchase.
As for "the best" - I tend to lean toward the Toshibas and the HP/Compaqs for price and performance but different techs will have different opinions across the board.
Oh, and most of the laptops you'd pick up at this point have built in wifi cards for internet use otherwise you can get a wifi data plan from a provider like cricket which is monthly without a contract.
Good luck with your purchase!
