Default laptop under $800

I am looking for a new laptop for under $800. Can you give me the best specs i could get for it? Also is vista really that bad and glitchy?

If you want something affordable with the best integrated graphics on the market:

Buy an HP Pavilion dv5z series notebook PC from HP

If you want a gaming laptop:

Gateway - Laptop with Intel® Centrino® Processor Technology - M-6862

Well....It will be under 800 as long as its on sale.

The Gateway looks very good to me, they make an okay laptop.

No vista isn't buggy or glitchy, in fact it is better than XP in most instances.
Back to stay?
