Help with finding a laptop

I am interested in getting a laptop pc. I figured this would be a good place to get some possible suggestions that I may not know about.

I need something basic. I would be using it primarily to surf the internet, with wirleless capabilities, so I can surf anywhere in my house or elsewhere. Other than web use and word processor use, I don't really have much need for one (no gaming or anything else I can think of, except maybe to use as a portable dvd player, that would be cool).

Since this would be just a secondary pc, more for laziness reasons (and with the fantasy football season coming up) and since I don't really need one, I was hoping to find a cheap one (I would give a price, but I don't know how realistic it would be, so whatever is cheapest, but still reliable).



Summary: Any suggestions for a cheap (and reliable) laptop?

I got the Dell 6000 last week and I highly recommend it.

Nearly a month ago I got the Compaq M2105US, which I just love. It'll do everything you just described. I've seen it several places usually with the exact same deal. It'll run you around $750, but you get over $200 back in rebates.
