Hello everyone.

I'm looking to buy a new laptop FAST (mine crashed and burned on Saturday). I'm not exactly rolling in dough right now, so I'm looking to buy one for under $400. Any suggestions?

Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated!

Great! Thanks so much for the suggestions. I am going to go with NewEgg. I've heard a lot of good things about them.
