Default I need a new laptop.

I need a new laptop. My techy knowledge is slim. I need to use Microsoft office and use the net. That is basically all I want. I don't want a big screen or a tiny one. I want something fairly fast and cheap. What is a good simple laptop to fit my needs? What should I look for when shopping? I'm not sure what other info you need. Teach me gl4x4 nerds. Please keep it simple I am not a guru just a basic pc user.

Go buy a Toshiba laptop. Get the one for less than $300.
Then go download 'Open Office' so you don't pay millions of dollars for unused software.

What about a good desk top? What would be a good option for that?

You could look at dells returns/refurbished laptops. After the holidays they get cheap.

My Toshiba sucks...newer satellite that shits out all the time. I personally wouldn't recommend Toshiba. Didn't google come out with a basic, user friendly laptop recently?
