    I've started school as a freshmen at WIU this year and I've decided that i need a laptop for taking notes and stuff in class. im looking at this one here...

    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4782349&Sku=A180-8035


    ...because its cheap. IT MUST BE CHEAP! i REALLY dont want to spend more than $300. i also dont want any IBM thinkpads. they just scream crappy when you look at them.

    it would be nice if i could find one that has a screen bigger than 10 inches. but i really dont think thats possible for under $300. if you can give me links and such to places that sell laptops for <300 bucks it would be great.

    thanks in advance!

    I know it's a netbook but I'm calling it a laptop.

    Well, unless your eyes can't handle the screen, or you are into heavy video editing, a netbook is fine. Mine does anything I need to do, and does fit into my pocket, despite what Apple says.
