I am in Canada. Any other recommendations?
If you can wait for shipping, order Dell or Lenovo online. They have weekly deals and coupons, go to www.redflagdeals.com and browse their hot deals section to see if there's anything new. I got a Lenovo SL400 for $730 all-in. LED backlight, Intel Core2Duo P8400, 4gig ram...

The Lenovo T400s are getting good reviews. Just waiting for prices to come down. Still the best keyboard in the business.

I ended up getting a Lenovo T500. I prefer the plain styling more than the fancing, shiny, graphics on most laptops nowadays. They were also discounted, and then another 25% off coupon on top of that. Specced out at $1850 or so, and discount price was $1059. Quite pleased and looking forward to seeing what I get. It's been about 7 years or so since my last IBM.

How long ago was that and how common is it for that model to be priced like that? My six-year-old Dell desktop is running like, well, a six-year-old Dell. I'm looking to upgrade relatively soon. What you got sounds real good. I'm not a gamer and would really only be using it for Office, browsing, and my eBay business.
