    For that money your best bet would be a Dell.

    Under 1000? Wait till you have more cash... the less you pay, the less time you'll get out of it. (From my own experience.)

    If he's spending under $1,000cad he won't be doing much more than streaming media and using the internet. Like Rock said, Dell is probably your best bet for that price if you insist on spending that. However I agree with CJ, save up a bit more and go for the HP DV series in the 1300-1400 range. I've got one, it's a good laptop.

    Edit: http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/prodde...7&catid=20354# this is a good deal.

    Toshiba makes some good laptops for the money. The only problem that you run into on Dell is if you want to upgrade the RAM you have to use DELL RAM rather then Toshiba where you don't have to use Toshiba RAM. As with Apple products I would only go with them if you had more money to spend.

    Build yourself a budget gaming desktop if you don't need a lappy

    Mac Books start at $1250 canadian. Although for people who are used to PCs, the stats numerically may not look as impressive, but I assure you benchmark very highly. I use an iMac at work and people often say "only 2.0GHz lol!!!111!" they fail to realize that it's dual core, and each 2.0GHz core benchmarks with the latest Pentium 4s easily.

    Anyway what I'm trying to say amidst all my rambling is, if you think you're ready to handle the switch, I highly recommend Apple's products, as their prices have never been better.

    I fully agree. I've never had a better computer than my now over one year old iBook G4. Once you get the hang of it, its much more efficient to use than a PC imo.
