Default Laptop search...

I'm looking for a good laptop to fit my needs and budget.

What i need it for...
-internet
-msn
-dvd rom to watch movies

Buget : under 1,000 CAN. or as least as possible.
I live in Canada, so something preferably from a Canadian Site or store, but if there's an amazing deal from the usa then i can get it picked up from there during the next month.

ohh, and is this a good deal?..from what i remember...
Compaq P3
dvd-rom
umm...can't really remember anything else right now...
well the guy is selling it for 400, the battery only is charged for 20 mins or so, and the screen hinge is lose and he is not able to fix it without buyin a new hinge...
So i offered 300, and he said 350, and we left it at that...

i've been looking at ebay since a friend of mine is most likely going to buy a laptop from there. I found a few good deals...
Thanks.

That's like the one the guy is trying to sell me, but it also has a dvd-rom, and some nice JBL speakers on both sides of the mouse-pad.
