Just a quick post that I was able to pick up a Dell Inspiron, NOT a netbook, for $330. Just go to the Dell web site, search for FAST TRACK, and click on the Vista Laptop tab.
My Laptop specs:
-Inspiron 1545, Intel Pentium Dual Core T4200, 2.0GHz, 800Mhz, 1M L2 Cache
-4GB, DDR2, 800MHz 2 Dimm
-320G 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
Cons: Comes with Vista. But at least that version can upgrade to Windows 7 fairly painlessly….I hope.
