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.

Do you have any size and/or price preferences?

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.
