Well personally I think you can have a look at these two:
Asus X83Vb-X1 14.1 inch 4GB 250GB NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS graphics laptop $700
and
HP Pavilion G60120US 2GHz 15.6 inch Laptop $600

if you go to circuit city you can get free kaspersky, lexmark printer and dlink router free after MIR

and that's a good laptop, but what do you need it for?
