I like acer but at that price point look at hp or dell. Don't get a nvidia gpu right now.

In that price range i think i would look toward asus eeepc

Good bang for buck and light as well. Fold On!!!

Eeepc's are very limited for $600 he could get a dual core 1Gb vista lappy with a bigger screen.

This isn't too bad Toshiba

This 1 is a little higher but does have the webcam

That is really nice. 2GB of ram and a dual core pentium. The new pentiums are really snappy. I got the crapware off a friends laptop that she had just got. It was the same cpu. Really nice.

The second 1 is a much better deal though

 I agree! For just $50 more (after tortuous mail-in rebate) the Lenovo adds 1GB more RAM, webcam, and a slightly-faster CPU. Amazing...for only $550 to $600 you can get a pretty-descent laptop![Y]

For sure on that, Bob!

 For your budget you'd better go and have a look in Dell.
