It all depends on what you plan to do with it.

Please do not write in all caps. It is a form of yelling, and not appreciated around here.

Look on newegg.ca, ncix.com, etc. Best Buy usually overprices them. And the CPU is not a deciding factor. Several other considerations go into it. GPU, RAM, HDD, etc.

Can't you just wait awhile? Prices always fluctuate. A 700 laptop you can get now may be 400 in 2 years. No doubt you can get even better performance down the road. Save up your money to be able to afford more later.

A 400 laptop isn't going to last you through ~4 years of uni.

Why not just get a cheap netbook, and save your money to get a more powerful one when you go to uni?

What games are you playing? No doubt your old system can't play that much either...
