Lightbulb not an idiot, just getting various ideas...

i just recently installed a wireless router at my house, so i figured it was time to get a laptop.
i am wanting to spend no more than $800, hopefully less.
i do a lot of things on my home network, but i will not be playing that many games on my laptop. I have another computer for that .
I know generally what im looking for, but Im open to different ideas I may have not considered.

everything helps,

ummm correct me if I'm wrong but you bought a wireless router and thus decided you wanted a laptop? check out or better yet go to and view specs and reviews there, they usually have some really good stuff
