    cheap laptop

    Looking for a really cheap, but reliable laptop for college. I'll have a desktop, so it'll be for basic college needs. Thanks!

    I am a junior at USF and to be honest I don't every really use my laptop I always use my desktop. But with that being said don't get a net book I did because I didn't have a lot of money I now regret it lol. Get something a little bigger.

    Another thing to look at would be a decent used laptop like an older core 2 laptop you are not going to need the latest and greatest laptop on the market.
