Helpmarker Computer Deals?

Does anyone know were I can get a good deal on a lower-end computer (desktop or notebook)? I need one for my online class, so if it's a notebook one, it has to have a half-way decent sized screen.

My computer got a virus & is now junk . I borrowed an old computer from a friend, but I can't do my classes on this, it is just too old.

Any help would be appreciated.

oh toshiba! was gonna say, i'd never heard of "tosh"! so now that i think of it, the computer guy we used to have in the office always recommended acer. he was microsoft certified and an acer reseller. i don't know one model from the other but i could ask around. you can't buy direct from acer but i pulled up one from staples just now.

http://www.staples.com/office/suppli...s_10051_SEARCH

maybe mary's heard of this "atom" processor, i haven't. it's a little guy 8.9 and probably not any powerhouse. the first one i pulled up was $600 though.

this $299 price looks pre-rebate to me, but don't hold me to it.
that toshiba does looks nice to me!

The acer you posted Alice has a tiny screen. It is a netbook.

Dimensions 9.8 (W) x 6.7 (D) x 1.14 (H) inches (2.44lbs)

is that a real name "netbook" or did you make that up? yes, mighty tiny. for the money the toshiba is WAY better! don't think i'd want THAT acer, but a more expensive one might be nice! not that i'm gonna get one of any kind mind you!

edit: guess you didn't make that up! buy.com is advertising this for $284.00. maybe they are taking the rebate themselves? i'm not impressed with e-machines though. and celeron on a laptop is probably worse than my desktop.

Acer Aspire One AOA150-1405 8.9-inch Widescreen Netbook with Intel Atom CPU, 1GB, 160GB + XP Home
Buy.com has this Acer netbook for $284.00. Shipping is free.

oh i see. that rebate is only if you buy a printer too.

This is what I get:
Sorry, this product is no longer sold at the Buy.com website.

But the one at Best Buy looks good. We are going to go there on Saturday to look at them.

Thanks

PS: If you see any more deals, let me know
