Hi All,
I am the newest member here and am in need of a good laptop for light gaming and web surfing. As I don't have alot of funds right now, I would like to find a decent referb. Anyone have some ideas?

Thank you,
Residentevil

I'm not a huge fan on referb's... What all are you looking for in the system, and how much are you looking to spend?

BestBuy has some decent Compaq laptops (2ghz processors 1+ gb ram) for about $400; or if you have a grand you can get a nice dual core machine... they have a kickass warranty (if you have to have it serviced 3x in 3 years you get to choose a new laptop at the same price)

Hello Residentevil,

A good place to pick up a dell computer for a better price is the Dell Outlet. Sometimes there are some really good deals there. Go to http://www.dell.com and click on "Home and Office" under Solutions on the right hand side. It will bring up a window with drop down menus across the top, one of which is called Dell Outlet.

Dell Outlet has Dell machines that have been scratched or broken and have had a part replaced. I have seen an XPS laptop with 120GB, 1.5GB and a 128 video card going for $480 before shipping and adding anything. I think it was about $550 after shipping and an upgrade I was considering.

While I ended up buying a Mac instead and have never bought from the Outlet, a friend told me good things about it, which is why I checked it out. Other than that, craigslist.com is a good place to find a used laptop for a good price. It's a local free advertising that covers many cities in the world. It gives you an opportunity to see what it is before purchasing since the seller will be local.

Hope this helps,
