Ok, pretty soon I'm going to be buying myself a new computer, but I decided to go the route of a laptop. It would be handy for school and college in a few years.

Anyway, I'm on a super old AMD duron 800 right now. I hope this new computer wil last me at least 2-3 years.

so I want something in the price range of 1000-1500 CAD, and I would really like a build it yourself laptop do I could maybe get some parts off ebay.

I want 1 gig of ram, 2 would be nice though. 60-80 Gig HD, and wifi are the mains.

For a processor I woild go for a Turion 2ghz, or maybe the newer one.

15" monitor is fine, If It's not ALOT more expensive I'd go for 17"

Any suggestions? Do you think it's a good idea to buy a processor off ebay?

hehe, sorry this is so badly typed, I have ski team practice in 10 minutes. /tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />

You can probably find a MSI barebone, but I have no idea where it is sold in Canada. /unsure.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='unsure.gif' />

MSI 1029 should be a good fit...

If you want a 17", the 1036 is also a fantastic option...
http://www.msicomputer.com/NB/...spec.asp?model=MS-1036' ">http://www.msicomputer.com/NB/...spec.asp?model=MS-1036

These are available as a bareboe as well as pre built from MSI and from some other companies which re brand laptops.

Is buying a cpu off ebay a good idea??? Well if you are buying from a reputable seller the chances of it being defective would be less, but in any case I would say avoind it and buy the cpu new since you never know what the cpu has been through if buy through ebay.

If you decide to build it yourself than the msi ones are nice... but if you want to purchase one heres a few from best buy canada iv seen that look pretty good. Only downside is the X200 graphics... so if you do games the msi comes with an X700 i believe, but otherwise these are popular ones.

Gateway notebook

Both are very similar, and good notebook cases. We carry both of these lines of notebooks in south carolina and they are very popular.
