The BEST netbook or laptop for $400

EDIT: I am now looking for deals within $300 USD!!

I am willing to buy from www.newegg.com www.tigerdirect.com www.amazon.com or any other company that is based within the U.S. As long as the store is reliable and the laptop uses quality parts.

I do not want to buy from ebay.

I am basically looking to get fastest CPU and as much RAM for $300, and that's about it.

Higher resolution screens are a plus.

I want one that uses an INTEL chip, unless someone can convince me that an AMD chip runs faster for the price range I am giving. I don't know why, but I have always stayed away from AMD.

Let the deliberation begin! Thanks for the help in advance! :)

  1. i should have said this earlier, but for some reason i would rather not buy from ebay!
  2. I have been looking at www.tigerdirect.com and www.newegg.com

    Here is what I have found so far:

    and a bunch more here:

    Help me choose? Basically I want the best CPU and RAM I can get. The webcam is pretty important too. I want something with clearer picture. I also need a built in mic (not just a mic jack).
  3. A netbook will not have much ram or cpu, nor will it have a high resolution screen. Some retailers have low priced 15" laptops and this will be your best bet if you need to buy new. You might find some deals on refurbs, such as from dell.com's outlet. Otherwise you will have to search for deals on used and that will be a big mess of sorting through different models and ages.
  4. i'd rather just get a new one. the point is that i just want the best new one i can get :P

    and remember--i am actually looking for something $300 (not $400, sorry).
  5. look at the links i gave :) there are quite a few choices!

    if anyone else sees a good one for $300 please let me know!
  6. What is the Netbook being used for?
  7. skype webcam calls, general browsing, maybe listening to some music, and maybe watching some movies/tv shows.

    some things to keep in mind that i mentioned before:

    "Basically I want the best CPU and RAM I can get. The webcam is pretty important too. I want something with clearer picture. I also need a built in mic (not just a mic jack). "
  8. best one so far: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834115826

    anyone that sees this plz remember:

    ~$300 is budget
    want good webcam
    built in mic
    fastest cpu as possible
    as much ram as possible.
    prefer intel cpu
