Is it possible...
To get an okay laptop, uses, for under $50? Yes, I know this is a tight budget, but for $50, if I could have a laptop that had 10 gb of hd and 64 mb of ram, that I could put linux (debian) on, I would love it. I would just use it for word processing and internet (wireless), and thats about it, besides the occasional download game or two. Battery life isn't super important, 2 or 3 hours is good, and weight dosen't matter.
