Seriously, though, any of the "big names" can be had for under a thousand, especially if you're just looking for internet, email, word processing, etc.  Toshiba & HP are good (watch out for Compaq, though).  Acer has improved lately.  Avoid Sony, I think.

I've heard really good things about the Kindle.  Never tried one.  I think somebody that posted here had one...Realist, I think, but I haven't seen him for months.

I have an Acer which is under $600. This is my second one. I bought this one as an upgrade to a 17" screen. I really like it. Go to Best Buy. You'll get the better deals there.

I have 4 H P and 1 home made tower.  I got my first laptop about 8 month back.  Toshiva Satelite A505 Windows Index 4.7 Installed Memory (RAM) 4.00GB 64-bit Operating System.  With DVD and CD/RW also.  My Index is only 4.7 as I did not get the top of the line Vido Card. 453 GB hard drive.  Under 800.00 $$   All I can say is I like it.  Always know what your going to do with a computer before you make up your mind on what one you get.
  

Only a fool think we can give free health care and not have our premiums skyrocket every year.
