Toshiba, HP, and Compaq are good brands. I've got a Gateway and it's been fine for me.
This one is a pretty good deal ($649) but only thru today.

It'll be tough to get a Turion/Centrino for under $700 but it can be done. As for the memory, for surfing and music probably not but you can never have too much memory
