Default Cheap Light Weight Laptop

Hey does anyone know where I can buy a cheap laptop online that is under 5.75 pounds and preferably less than $650?

My local best buy had a cheap gateway laptop that was 5.23 pounds and only $499 but they sold out both at the store and online.

I dont need a power beast, just something light and portable that can browse the web and type.

Here's one that's $699, and it's 6.2 pounds. It's a better brand than Gateway too I'd say.
