A notbook



I found this one at Tiger Direct
and was wondering what you thought of it. I can’t affford a realy good one but I do want a dvdcd-rw in it so I can watch DVDs. I trust you guys and know u won’t stear me wrong.


Tiger Direct is a good company, E-machines…not so much. It’s also refurbished (possibly broken, then repaired and resold). I also haven’t looked at anything regarding AMD mobile processors, so have no idea how the heat situation is.

You might want to spend some extra get a new one from a place like http://www.sagernotebook.com/pages/professional_systems.html .

The price is very good for the hardware they are including, like $500 cheaper than comparable systems…and it should make most people suspicious. Buy the extended warranty if you go for it.


I suggest to keep checking sites like http://www.slickdeals.net

Just a little while ago they had a Dimension 4600 P4 2.8GHz System w/ 17" LCD $674

And this wasn’t their greatest deal either, they are sometimes better.


How about an iBook?
