QuoteI want/need a laptop. As you know, I am broke. So I can't spend a lot. I want something that will be able to handle both a wireless card, and plug into the internet manually. I don't know what- if either- will be available to me in Mexico. But I want the wifi for here in the meantime. I'd also like it to be able to handle iTunes. In my delusional mind, I plan to have an iPod before I move. How else can a music person survive? I only have shitty, scratched CDs and I'd have to take them with me? Not to mention my discman is dying. So someone told me then that the laptop would need Windows XP. And even looking at used ones, I'm still facing $400 or so.I'm posting this to see what others can tell me. Where's a good place to look online? What about companies that get rid of outdated puters? Does anyone know anyone getting rid of one? Any help or advice you can give would be appreciated.

Quotebecause the rest of the laptop is about 12" too.
QuoteLaptops with that large of a screen are hardly convenient to tote around when on the go.
QuoteIf you notice, most of these monstrosities are deeply discounted by online vendors because they have not been selling well.
