Default Re: Should I Go For It?

i could spend about $500-$550 on a laptop, but i kind of need to restore my desktop.
the only cheap laptops i see are with AMD Turion X2 i think.
i guess i will try and wait for a sale to go on or something.
but seriously, do i need a dual core just to multitask office, music/video, and firefox open with tabs?
i wont be doing any editing, or gaming.

You have my vote. Low-end C2D. 2-3GB of RAM. Vista 32-bit.

That's just not in his budget. The cheapest C2D laptops are like $700.
