    Ok guys, im thinking of getting a laptop this week. Best Buy is gettin a shipment of the new Compaq 900US on thursday/friday. Its an Athlon XP 1700+, 256 DDR RAM, 30 Gig HD, DVD/CD-RW. End price will be 1838 w/$250 rebate. Ive looked around but can only find DDR RAM bundled w/P4 computers. I am lookin for a laptop with DDR RAM and either an Athlon XP or P4 processor. I dont have a credit card so it would have to be a local B&M like Best Buy or Circuit City.Any of you of any other computers with similar features/performance for around the same price with rebates?

    thx, l8rz,
    Deepak Jr.

    I would strongly advise you to get a credit card before purchasing something like a computer.

    Buying with a credit card is supposed to give you certain protections that aren't available with a personal check or bank check. (If the merchant sells you defective merchandise and won't fix the problem, the bank can issue you a credit, which it recovers from the merchant.)
