Well Jen8112 I thought about what you said about being happy with the lower price laptop so why not stick with that for my dd 14. So, I went to WM this morning and bought two of the Compaq $288 laptops. One for my dd11 and the other for my dd14.
Good for you, I'm glad you got them! Hope they work out good for you! And hopefully my DS 10 will be happy with a $100 netbook if they have them for BF.
