I need help from all of our great members.

Recommended Posts

I started a new job a while back and today I was in a meeting with the big wigs. They are buying two new laptops to give away to our under privelaged students for Christmas. The budget is 1200 bucks but I am sure they would like to come in under budget. So I need help finding a good laptop for 400-500 bucks. I dont really want them to have mail in rebates. It doesnt have to be a beast, its not a gaming rig, its more for school but of course we want it to be as nice as possible. Thanks in advance guys.  :grin2:

Thanks so much guys. D great finds. Starship my old (young) friend I dont see a price to that comp. What am I missing? Oh and D, will do on the Vista.

yeah sorry shug, mine comes with vista...but the price on newegg for that model was 499  :wink:

but mine has vista home basic...so you might want to discard that. idk

but yeah, dlewis, you know some vostro models are more expensive with vista if you go with xp pro sp2? at least it was when i customized the 1500. vostro version.

Here are a few of my personal choices...

Asus Eee PC: http://eeepc.asus.com/global/product.htm

And if your company is looking for a write off.. One Laptop Per Child.. http://laptopgiving.org/en/index.php  Their hardware is getting rave reviews from users..  $399 you get one and one is sent to a third world country..

The one laptop per child would be great but not really for our adult students. I like the eee pc and never really thought of that one. Thanks man.
