Does anyone know any good computer stores online that can give you under $600 a AMD Turion 64 or Sempron with ATI graphics card or Nvidia graphics card?

Compaq Presario V2000Z

The Compaq Presario V2000Z's feature set and low base price are appealing, but you can get superior speed and battery life from slightly more expensive mainstream notebooks.

Specs: AMD Turion 64 (2 GHz), 256 MB DDR SDRAM, 5.4 lbs, 14 in TFT active matrix, Microsoft Windows XP Home SP 2

Here it is ... google is a wonderful thing.. typed in Compaq Presario V2000Z and there it was, right on the first page

If you buy it straight from hp right now (hp owns compaq), they have it with a $150 instant rebate and $100 mir, so it starts at only $450. Add a turion processor instead of a sempron and 512mb of ram instead of 256 and it's $600 instead of $850 (I would also get the 12cell battery for an additional $40).

The have a deal with Intel that states exclusivity... supposedly (and i would assume this is the case, but cannot say i know for sure) dell is able to get intel chips at a signifigantly reduced cost due to the deal
