I'm looking for a good deal on a laptop to replace my desktop. My computer usage is very limited to word processing, internet, and emails. Nothing that needs a great deal of power. I'm not into PC Gaming that much, however, I like to play "Links 2003". I believe, the following specs would be adequate for my needs:

intel/athlon 1.5 gig mhz or above
cdrw/dvd rom
good video display

Any suggestions or recommendation would be appreicated.

Thanks in advance,
