    Oh, I am buying this bad boy online. No way I am purchasing it in store, you would have to be a moron. I am leaning towards the vaio or the asus right now. I am going to do a little more research and decide. I am leaning vaio because 4 hours is plenty of battery for me and the extra processing power is more important to me than additional battery life. Thanks a lot guys!

        While I like the Best Buy, you can find pretty much everything they sell for less somewhere else haha.
        not totally true, I just bought a TV this morning for $115 cheaper than my discount would be.

        but yes, I wouldnt buy a computer from the store.

            The Vaio NW240 you linked to is $730 at Newegg. Best buy has NW270's for $700. They sell the NW240 for $650.

            A few weeks ago, I bought an FW510 from them for $650. As far as I could tell, best buy had the best prices on computers by far.

            To the OP: The main knock on the Sony's is price. They are very nice computers. When I looked at all the different brands in person, the decision was easy. I suggest you do the same and just keep your eyes out for a deal.

                Just want to give this a quick bump because I'm in the market for a new laptop with a similar price range. Any suggestions from the more technically inclined would be appreciated.

                  if you don't game, don't watch movies on it, but just browse the internet and watch porn, I would just suggest a decent netbook, then spend the extra cash on an external drive so you can back up the files you download if you're into that kind of thing and a wired mouse because netbooks don't really have a worthwhile mouse

                      I watch a good amount of stuff, (don't really game), and do a good amount of work on it.

                        I bought my Asus laptop less than a year ago for around $550 and am loving it. If you can find one similar, I'd recommend it (2.13 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB hard drive, 4.7 hours of battery).

                          This makes me happy in the pants because I've been working towards purchasing an Asus laptop for several months now. The one I want (forget what model) supposedly has like 9-10 hours of tested battery life. That's a lot of free-roam fapping and compooping.

                              This perhaps? If you did a lot of typing it would get annoying though. I'm not even a Mac guy so I dont know why I am recommending it.

And to the guy who mentioned the IPad...no...just no. Ipad is the biggest waste of $600 you can find. It doesn't support flash, and it's just an enlarged version of the Ipod Touch.

                                I would either go with a Dell Inspiron or a Sony Vaio. I am currently using a MacBook Pro, but that is obviously out of your price range.

                                Also, if you can afford it, Lenovo makes a pretty decent laptop.
