Well thats the problem i can reccomend some models and lines but because i have trouble accssing some sites in the US notably some of the biggest hardware manufacturers i cant give links youll have to google them or just go to the sites.
Acer travelmate looks good i like the looks of the Acer travelmate 4672 pretty cheap here but again i dont know the prices US because it wont let me access it for some reason. the 4220 looks good as well its got an x1300 for the gfx which is half decent, and the 2000 series are dirt cheap but you start to lose some features on those and the battery life isnt as good but at those prices they are still decent.
The dells are allright easy enough to look those up look at the acers i reccomended youll see what kind a spec and price you are looking at and see what dell can do for you in something similar see if the price is cheaper, only thing about that is dell laptops tend to be quite large.
PC buying i need to know wether you are up to building it or you need to buy one, building is easy to do comes out a little cheaper and its usually faster as companies take longer to assemble the systems. Again i can tell you what to get but your going to have to look them up yourself to get prices and find the cheapest deals on parts or systems.
Youre going to have to do the some of the footwork yourself i cant do it all for you as its very time consuming and its not hard and ive got work for my exams to do so i cant be raking around setting up proxies to access sites.
