Check out Craigslist for your area in the computer section. You said you wanted something newer so do your research before you buy. You can also go to some "Rent To Own" stores and get something but make sure you can makes the payments and make sure you have the option of paying off early without penalty.

As the person below mentioned you can try Goodwill. You can also try a pawnshop. Just be careful, if you aren't that PC savy take a friend or relative who is.

Same with the Craigslist laptops.

Whatever you do please don't buy a laptop computer from eBay. I can guarantee that you will get burned because you are buying some else's headache.

Above is a website to consider, first call their customer service and get all the information that you can.

The PC Magazine website has a lot of information and reviews of all kinds of laptops. Once you narrow it down to a model or two, you can comparison shop. If you're like most of us, you don't need a "whole lot of computer", and ought to be able to get something nice for your budget! probably also rates places to purchase them, too. I have purchased locally, for the support and was glad to have done so. (05/13/2009)

My sis in law bought hers from Walmart, it is an Acer. I didn't think I would like it, but it's great and she loves it. She works from home and she does her medical transcription on it sometimes, so it has to run really well to do that. She paid less than 500 for hers. (05/20/2009)
