lap top ideas anyone?

I want to buy a laptop before my trip.
13" to 14" screen (small) and between 500 and 800 (or more?)
any dear readers have a suggestion?

ED: I'VE SHOPPED AROUND TODAY AND MOST LIKELY WILL GO WITH THIS TOSHIBA LAPTOP. GREAT TO SEE THE QUESTION GET SO MANY COMMENTS AND DISCUSSION GOING TODAY. THANKS ALL.

clay

was jsut reading about clay aiken coming out of the closet here. and I have to ask , His mother was STUNNED?!?!? uh huh....
he came out of the closet the day they announced he was having a surrogate kid, what straight guy does that besides michael jackson? (ha ha nudge nudge wink wink)
anyway, anyone guess which pic below is dan?

update from okc, I'm moving crap out of storage into my house and trying take a minimilist approach, and making a pile to get rid of clothes! i have to! must!
also cleaning it up because my austin bud is staying over tonight, we're going to plan our meet up in paris, what to do, and just catch up from whats going on this past 9 months Ive been gone.
met an ex army guy online that I chatted with before from overseas, he is a friend of my gay friend here in okc. SO I'll have to decide if that means I can ask the guy out or just hang out with him since he's been out with my gay friend in okc before. ya know how it goes. friends come first each time ahh yeah.
he's a very hot mexican american guy solid and laid back and seemingly very cool. just my type.
all right, now back to storage to find some glasses and plates to use in the house tonight.
no communication with the roomie but i will either find him tomorrow at his work or just change the locks on the door before taking my trip. oh yeah, the reason I said "sadly he moved out" is I really liked having a roomate, and he really was a nice guy to live with before I moved and he had no accountability to pay rent. ahh well.

craigs...

great morning

cloudy cool and wet out, garbage truck just came by taking away some trash from stuff I'd thrown out. I'm about ready to eat breakfast and get outside a little, and then watch kelly and regis. aww yeah, the states life!
actually I'm getting my house set up and then can focus on getting up to Arkansas to visit my buds there and then my austin buddy is coming into town later this week, so actually the AR trip might be postponed a few months.
I'm calling a family accountant today to make sure about my 330 day tax exemption and then will plan another 3 weeks in latina america after I return from the 3 week vacation already planned in october.... whoosh.
I've emailed a "bud" in town and still waiting to hear back, once my phone is connected i have a few numbers to call in this town trying to get some ACTIONE. ha

yardwork

got outdoors yesterday. all is good at the house, the roomie, sadly, has moved out a month ago. but that is prolly good news because it made it easier to just move back in. he left a couch and chair and computer and other things here which are now in a nice stack in the corner, and the furniture I'll move after i get mine out of storage.
i mowed, weed eated, weeded and the place is looking clean and good again. the only thing is the disposal inthe kitchen sink doesn't work and is all corroded I think. and the toilet will need to be placed, but other wise things were clean and vaccuumed. I'll prolly replace the locks on the door before I go on vacation unless I see him come by this weekend or something.
