Are you planning to order the laptop from R1? They can ship the product to you, or you can request an instore pick up. You can still order the item right now, but you'll have to wait for stock to come in before it gets shipped. You can also check your local store to see if they have any in stock, and just pick it up from there. If you order it from R1, they order through Best Buy's online warehouse.

Most E-SYSTEM Laptops are good, lasted me for 2 years without any problems.

Ground March 6, 2009 (Estimated Delivery Time) $19.99
Expedited March 4, 2009 (Estimated Delivery Time) $17.12

It's funny that Ground costs more than Expedited.

I'd get a dell. Inspiron. Get a dual core processor and the rest is really up to you. Take advantage of dell coupons. Inspiron has tons of them. There is one where you get like $250 off a purchase of $1,000. Hit me up on AIM if you want my help.
