I've heard that Toshiba makes the best Lap tops and that one that MCKbrew linked for $480 sounds like a good deal.

I have worked with Toshiba, Dell, Mac, Gateway, Acer, Sony, HP and some off brands. IMHO HP has been the best for notebooks.
+1 on the HP that Bobby_M suggested and linked to. The price is good and for what you are doing you won't need anything better. When you go with cheap laptops you have to be carefull with the type of processor that is put into it. That HP is at least still using an Intel. It may only be a Celeron (their lower end type) but for surfing the internet, it will be fine.

I think for newbs and experts alike, they are tough to beat. Factor into the price of any Windows based laptop things like AV, Anti-Spyware, etc. and you are close to the cost of a macbook.
lol you pay for software???

I mean I totally do too

I just got a $3500 notebook for $1350 on the Dell refurbished site. http://www.dell.com/outlet
Anything on that page is the bet deal around in my opinion.
