Can any of you "youngsters" or computer experts out there recommend a good deal on a laptop? (definitely under 500.00) hopefully less than that. Something basic, durable and user friendly (for 50 somethings) without a lot of bells and whistles? Thanks in advance. :)

Under $500? The guys at the fire department know where to get one for under six thousand dollars!

Didn't they get laptops for five THOUSAND dollars?

I guess us overtaxed taxpayers don't mind spending that kind of money for a good cause!

Go figger!

I heard OECD bought them (for $5000.00! :shock: ) so George and merle could keep a record of their citations written, inspections and a daily log, and they never ended up using them! I really wonder why the city is broke?

If I were to pay $5,000 for a computer ...... every naked girl I look at on the internet would have to step out of the screen and become real! LOL!




I'm pretty sure that technology is still pretty far off!

I bought my acer aspire for 299, and i think they are 249 now. of course mine has had 3 operating systems since new... and now its iff at best... but it was pretty nice when i bought it haha.

$5,000??? I didn't even realize such an expensive computer existed... my few hundred dollar pentium 4 with a $150 video card can handle autodesk inventor, autocad, microstation, and microsoft flight simulator X just fine.... What exactly are the firemen doing? crunching numbers for the NSA?!?
