Need some assistence.

Hello nation, I just have a question about this laptop:

http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/hom...00-Notebook-PC

Is there a cheaper, more efficient (faster running, more powerful, etc) laptop than that? Not looking for a screen that's 17 inches, 15"/16" is fine. Also, it must be an HP. Not looking to game on it, and it HAS TO BE UNDER $500

Go

I'd forgo the discount and get almost anything else.

I'd rather have Lenovo or Toshiba in that price range.

Regardless of manufacturer, <$500 is going to buy you a piece of crap.

Does it really cost much/any more to make a monitor that size in 1440x900 resolution or whatever that scales up to? My cousins 7 year old Dell laptop shouldn't have better resolution than most laptops today.

Unless you really want to play games on your laptop or extremely intensive work, there are many quality laptops less than $1000...

inb4 Apple Tax.


Since I'm typing this lower in my reply, the first part is technically accurate. You can get the same amount of computer for a fair amount less money if you're not set on having rounded edges and fitting in at Starbucks. Just sayin'.
