I am in no way computer savvy....

But if i was to get a newer lap top and i only really use a computer for interent and storing pics and making videos etc...

What would a decent one cost me?

Just a ball park, nothing fancy :blah:

just picked up an ibook (g3 500) last night for 100 bucks. Has the basics for browsing, email, etc.
12" screen, DVD drive, does everything I need it to (browsing w/ it now)
Cool little notebook!
If you just need the basics, no reason to get a loaded, brand new top of the line copmputer.

I just got a dell from best buy for $600. Fast enough for any photo editing or movie making with a 320gb hard drive to store it all. Works well so far. Vista doesn't seem to be that much different than XP besides little bells and whistles.

I usually go for the refurbs on Tiger Direct, you get a little better machine for the price.

www.deals2buy.com or www.slickdeals.net

browse each site for a week or three and then choose the highest optioned, under $500 delivered laptop you find.

I personally would go with something from Dell small business and go with the free installed downgrade to windows xp pro instead of the steaming turd/resource hog that is vista.

else, if you addicted to candy assed graphics, and "cool looking" graphical interfaces pick up a 2nd hand mac.
