You got to share how much you want to spend and which OS you want.

What he said.

Plus, in general, with how low prices are now on laptops, I'd look to new. I have recently seen a couple of very nice models in the $600 range.

Unless you are getting a higher end IBM or something, I'd get new. Latest OS, warranty, good battery, etc, etc.
