Hello,
I'd like to buy a laptop for around $300. There are a few with 4GB ram and around 250GB of disk. What are some specific model recommendations?

What do you want to do with it?
Game?
Web browsing?
Document editing?
3D modelling?
Video editing?
Penetration testing?
Typing? (some have better keyboards than others)
etc

The i3 370 acer looks appealing -- any thoughts on it vs the Lenovo with a B950?

Both have 4gb ram and 500 gb hdd.

The Lenova at newegg is 389, the acer at walmart 409 w/ tax

What are you thoughts on this i3 370 acer vs the b950 Lenovo? RAM and HDD are the same. I have 1 acer at home. How does Lenovo compare? Is the i3 worth $20 more? That's the net of it for me.

so the i3 is a bit better cpu-wise, but the b950 is better graphics


Yes you are right and my suggestion was based on better processor and price they are offering is pretty good. I mean good value for money :)
