    I found a great price on a used Dell loaded with MS software. Check craigslist for classifieds. The guy that sold it to me worked for MS and included all the orginal legal and legit CDs with COA.

    I've got a dell and I can't complain. To be honest I'm 100% satisfied, I thought it would be just OK but it turned out to be the best computer I've ever had.

    Whatever you get, try to get the biggest screen you can and opt for the long life battery if you plan to use it without AC power.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention it's an Inspiron 1150 with a 15" screen and 12 cell lith-ion battery that has over 5 hours battery life! I bought it a year and a half ago and it's still going strong, great machine.

    Ebay and search for laptops.
    Search for new and in sealed box.
    You really can get good deals there.
    Dell laptops are supposed to be darn good laptops.
