Default A laptop

Well, since I had many financial problems over the past few months, I cannot afford a 2,000 USD laptop. To be honest...I'm looking for something around 400-600 USD(lol,true). I checked Dell,Office max,Alien Ware,Bestbuy. I have seen some laptops for 550 and are pretty good. My laptop would be used for work, and general stuff. Some possible gaming,nothing too extreme. Now if anybody can help me, I'll <3 them. Thanks

Check OnThe GoPC:
They carry a decent selection at good prices.

Retrobox used to be a great place to find used hardware, but their site is gone. I Googled them and found out that they have been acquired by Intechra, so I dunno if they still sell or not.

If you want to go new build one on www.compaq.com
For refurbs Geeks.com is pretty good from what I've seen and heard. Just make sure you know what you're getting
