I'm back... from CompUSA. I ordered an HP laptop. Intel Centrino Core Duo 2500 (2 ghz), 2 gig DDR2, 128 mb NVidia 7400 video card, 100 gb HDD 5400 rpm, 15.4 in. screen, Windows XP Media Center Edition, ability to burn DVDs and CDs, bluetooth cabable. Cost... 1500 dollars + 2 year warranty that covers EVERYTHING (screen replacement, one free battery replacement, etc.) and i bought a bluetooth Logitech mouse. Thanks for the help!

Sighs, IMO the only time you should Buy a prebuilt is if its really cheap, Like for Just Email, Internet and word processing. If your Budget is anything over 700$ its almost always worth it to Build it custum.

So when your ready to build your next computer, post back and ask for advice.
