    Default Small, cheap laptop/notebook for Tafe/uni

    Any recommendations? I'm wanting to spend under $500 and something small and light.

    If you have a stand alone **** smiths see if they are going out of business they are have a huge sale. If not I could try to grab one and if you wanted to pay shipping and repay me the cost I could pick one up for you and send it your way.

    **** Smiths aren't going out of business. Woolies is just seperating themselves from them.

    I think you won't have any issues getting a computer for under $500. Harvey Norman just had an ad on tv. They have laptops for $398 i think it was.
    Personally i would stay away from all of the big companies when buying a computer. You seem to get better deals from actual computer shops. They can build computers or change certain things to suit your needs.

    I got a free acer netbook from dodo when I signed up to their wireless internet. I use it to write all my uni assignments and its really great and compact on the train.

    I saw today in the paper that Coles has a couple for under $500, remembered this as i thought it was something new for them to sell and from memory it was an ok brand.

    I bought an asus from **** Smith for $350ish a few months ago. It's 2gb so it's faster than most netbooks and it's battery life is around 7-8 hours. I love it

    From what I was told they were shutting down the stand alone stores and keeping the smaller stores
