    Its walmart they are always low, also i had a coupon but the marked price was still only $600 and acer is not that much of a name brand. I have had it for over 6 months and not one problem. :)

    Acer is no good IMO :)

    Go for HP or IBM instead, well worth the money ;)

    Sony Vaio is a good option...

    Slightly above your price range if you go for higher models..

    Edit: if you want books in your budget, go to Reliance Digital.. Its cool and they give lot of discounts..

    And, IBM is good, but not for an 18 year old... Just wait for sometime, earn more and get a Vaio or Macbook

    I recently bought a Sony Vaio, and absolutely love it. I purchased it for $1,100 + $300 3-year warranty. I would suggest Sony, Dell, or HP.

    I highly suggest staying away from the Mac Air. Although it is a beauty, it is more for "looks" than for "work". In order to transfer data onto there, you need to spend $100 on a external drive.
