Just my opinion....if it has Vista on it don't buy it. If it will support xp or win 7 buy it.

If it is a Vista machine...consider it to always be a Vista machine as there is a driver problem should you decide to go xp or 7.

You are going to see a lot of outlets unloading Vista computers and the reason is stated above.

I would look for monitor size.....hard drive size and memory. And is it set up for wireless.

Also take a close look at any warranty.....and does it come with any cds..(OS)

Laptops are becoming like Bic lighters....when out of gas you toss it. The repair cost can be more than a new one...........

Core i3 > Athlon II > Turion II

The system should have at least 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD or better, & if you're into gaming, the graphics type is extremely important. Also, Windows 7 is the only way to go - 64-bit if it's available.
