Do you have a laptop? How much did it cost? Are you happy with it? What brand?

I am thinking of HP. The one I saw was $597. I would like to find something that cost even less if possible.

  • I have an HP Pavillion. It's a couple of years old. Don't remember what it cost but it works excellent.

  • I got an Acer last February. I paid...I think it was about $348 for it. I love it. It's absolutely wonderful. It came with Windows 7, which took a little getting used to since I'd been using Ubuntu for a couple years. But I love it now.

  • Hubby just bought an HP, he really likes it. He gave around 600.00 for it, but not sure where from. Here's the link:

    Mine is an ASUS, nothing fancy, but I like it. We gave 400.00 from Best Buy.

  • Oh- and honestly Walmart isn't that bad, either. But LOOK at what's included. Some will offer the basic OS but no Word, no other programs, etc.
