^ I'm dual booting, and Ubuntu and win xp seem to be tied in my case. Also, a few laptops use flash memory for win bootup making it more or less instantaneous. I don't know if they do this with linux tailored ones or not.

I have an HP entertainment pavallion... it's refurbished, so i got it for 400 bucks...
My only problem with it = not enough memory... have to buy external harddrive...
40G just isn't enough.

mabey ill get a mac, but i looked on the apple site....they cost too much


Believe me... if you're gonna use your laptop for simple word processing, there is no reason for you to spend money on a mac. Plus, I think you noticed it already, but the cheapest MacBook goes for well above your stated budget, so whoever suggested you to get a mac probably didn't read your limits or needs.

wow u can't really get any good laptop with 700.... go to futureshop.... i think they have one there for 699 XD or u can custom build ur own laptop for a lot cheaper.. but relaly u can't do anything much with 700 for a laptop.......

oh and if ur willing to blow more then get an asus laptop... they are the best speed due to the high overclocking capability for the cpu

apples are too expensive....since you dont need an awesome laptop, better go for the cheapest like dell or hp. buying off ebay can be risky, and usually doesn't come with the manufactuer's warranty, so I wouldn't buy it.
