Default best place for cheap laptop????

A guy who fishes with me has a kid in college and he wants to get his kid a lap top for college. This guy has a very limited budget I am talking 500.00 and under!!! Any suggestions as to where I can find him a good value laptop on the cheap?

For a college student a note book fits the bill I buy from this group and they are trustworthy...

Dell, they have a sale on that ends today (12/10) I think. We use them at work. Good quality for a good price.

Good Luck.

I got my IBM/Lenovo off ebay for a touch over $300. The Thinkpad T series are workhorse machines, and hold up very well to business/student life. Mind is a referb, and I use it all day every day in my truck for work. Handles email, MS office applications, and several other business tools with no trouble.
