I want to buy another laptop and I'd like some advice.

Right now I do everything on my Inspiron. It's pretty much just a portable office for me that I only haul from my dorm to my house and back. It's big, 17'', it's powerful, and I trust it--hell, I hardly wear a condom when I fuck it anymore. But I'd like a second laptop, something small, no bigger than 13'', that I can carry around with me to class, on the train, in my local porno theater, etc. Pretty much the only hardware specs I need are a decent wireless card so I can leach wifi on the fly, an HDD with approximately 100 gigs of storage and a decent write speed, and the processing power to run Firefox and MS Word... maybe even simultaneously.


Where can I get the best bang for my buck? I know Geeks.com has some decent refurbished deals but I'm a tad wary since a refurbished laptop would not come with a manufacturer's warranty and, unlike desktops, I can't crack it upon and tinker with it all willy nilly.

Ideas?

    Hmm, not sure how you feel about ultraportables, but might you might look into an HP MiniNote. It's small, has built in wifi and bluetooth, a 120 or 160GB hard drive, and could pretty easily run Firefox and Word.

    I dont konw how you feel about used, but you should be able to pick up a used g4 macbook for like 350 on craigslist. Built in wifi, superdrive and theyll run all that stuff.

    I'm not a fan of the Mac OS so I'd rather stick to PCs.
