    So long story short, I dropped my laptop and broke the screen. It is going to take time to fix and with what I have going on right now, I can't wait for the repairs forever.
    Does anyone out there have a cheap (though usable) laptop that they would be willing to give a good price on for a fellow BHW member?

    I found this on ebay and it's about the best laptop that I could find for the money. Anyone, seriously, I am in a pinch! I need something to hold me over (for now), but good enough to use for stuff when mine is fixed.

    Not looking to spend a lot, as I say I am in the middle of a big project, but that project involves a comp too you know..........

    I can pay today if someone can help and the offer is right....

    I live in USA. And I have a laptop. It is broken. I am looking for something to hold me over until mine is fixed. Something cheap, but workable. That is all.
    Thank you all for you help, but cheap cheap....
    I was actually thinking that maybe a BHW member had one laying around that could part ways with it for cheap as it seems many of us spend a lot of time on computers......

    Buy a Netbook as a backup computer. I have the Acer Aspire One, from Newegg. It has 160GB, 1GBRAM, WinXP, 1.6GHz Intel Atom, 10" Screen, and all for under $350. It makes a great backup computer.

    It does feel stupid. I have done that before, but it may work just fine. Only thing is I hardly ever work from home. Will do, but still if anyone has anything let me know.
