    ok like i said i have $500 to buy a new pc.. im selling my current for $650 today and wanna keep $150 of that and use $500 to buy a new one.
    I prefer a laptop.. and for a laptop i can go up to $500.. i can also use a desktop but i won't pay over $250 for a desktop.

    btw i want VISTA on it not xp.

    make sure you check the deal sites like slickdeals.net etc.

    Also Newegg is really good place to find some deals on laptops/desktops
