Notebook under $700, some advice?

Recommended Posts

I need to buy a laptop but I only have $700.

What is the best machine that can I buy with this much?

Please, no Celeron or Sempron!!!

ACER I would say, best price/performance/quality.

And why not a Sempron64? Celeron M I can understand...

EDIT:

Buy a Dell for the warranty.

:lol:, That’s just in a few countries, Canada, USA and (part of) Europe seems to have service.

Yeah! could be. but why I´ll buy a Sempron64 if I can buy a Intel Core Duo with this price?

That's true. But a laptop with a cheaper Sempron will probably have some other features for that $700,- like more memory or a bigger harddisk or whatever.

What is best for you depends on your needs. That's why a question like "What is the best buy for my money" is so difficult to answer.

I´ll use this laptop to connect internet, check e-mails, edit text, presentation, and so on. Like a small business.

After a fast search, I can say that these are my choices:

HP Pavilion dv6000t (Core 2 Duo): $729

http://shopper.cnet.com/HP_Pavilion_dv6000...02.html?tag=pop

Lenovo ThinkPad R60 (Core™ 2 Duo Processor): $679.00

ACER Aspire AS5100: $708.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16834115283

Dell Inspiron E1505 (Core Duo 1.60GHz/80GB/1GB): $699

http://shopper.cnet.com/Dell_Inspiron_E150...03.html?tag=pop

Dell Latitude D520: $699

http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/con...p;c=US&l=EN

Dell Business Inspiron 6400 (Core Duo 1.83GHz, 1GB RAM, 60GB HDD): $629

http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/con...p;c=US&l=EN

Lenovo ThinkPad R60: $679

http://www.pc.ibm.com/us/notebooks/thinkpa...p;cid=US1A00002

HP Pavilion dv2000t: $719.99

http://reviews.cnet.com/HP_Pavilion_dv2000...04.html?tag=txt

but I have one problem: the guy who will buy the laptop on EUA for me, can not find the same product for the same price as those web prices, right? so I just have to recommend the processor that I want: Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Turion 64 X2. advices on these?
