Inexpensive laptop/netbook?
Yeah, I know... Spending too much $$$. But I'd still like to have the portability of a laptop and, since I got the Budget OCer parts for so cheap and have parts still left to sell, I think it may be worth it... So yeah, looking for a laptop, max $500 - nothing ancient/decrepit please. I believe someone had an Asus laptop FS some time ago that has a 3G Sim card slot... that would be ideal, but its only wishful thinking, lol. Let me know! Post back here and/or PM me! Thanks guys...

not sure if this is what your looking for, but i bought my wife a toshiba laptop for pretty cheap from futureshop. came to bout 520 after everything and its pretty decent.

I might have a dell with a centrino duo in it, its like a year old and still pretty fast by todays terms. Its not really mine its my gfs but she wants to trade it in for a netbook for portability. anyways she wasnt going to ask alot for it ($450 or less) but im not sure if she still wants to part with it ill have to ask her this weekend. I believe its 2.0ghz with 2 gbs of ram and a 160gb hard drive with all the normal laptop bells and whistles (mic/cam,Remote,Wifi,DVD writer,Card reader..) But I cant remember what expansion slot she had in it, I thought it was 3g but I may be wrong.

Saturday bump.

Sunday bump....

As a side note, be very very careful when looking for things on Kijiji. Seems to be quite a bit of fraud going on there (ex: I got 5 responses from there last night, all different items/users, claiming they were living in London now and needed payment in advance to ship the item). Bleh!

Yeah seems the laptop market right now is FULL of those guys, Im still getting emails from them on my laptop from both kijiji now and craigslist =( still no word on the laptop CM =( shes going out of town for 4 days now too.

EDIT: ill try and get you the model number asap, I dont know if they really come with model numbers, she bought it straight from dell. Its the 15.3" and I got them to bump up the ram from 1 gb :blarg:...
