My System Specs

Default 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...

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.

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!
