I would like to throw in Asus as a great suggestion. Their laptops are pretty much bulletproof.

Thanks everyone, I'll be heading out after one this weekend. Hopefully I will have some access to the internet while deployed, and I will stay in touch as much as possible.

If you're still in the market for a inexpensive laptop. RadioShack.com has HP® G72-B63NR for 399.99. The Pentium 6100 is a slightly faster processor compared to the Core i3, but it will also consume more power, you can't beat the price though.

A little update, I ended up with an ASUS U52 w/intel core i5, 4 GB RAM, and a 640 GB HD, and built in web cam. Got Office 2010 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus. Got the folks at Best Buy to fo the set up and install. I'm really pleased so far. Thanks again for the suggestions. I did a little more research after getting a good start here and found that the ASUS brand was rated #2 behind apple in several different forums and magazines. Dug a little more and found out the ASUS supplies motherboards and other internal components to quite a few of the big names. Thanks again for the help, I just hope I have access to the internet.

I have a dell e1705, it's been pretty dang good, i took it to iraq for 15 months and pretty much wore the cd drive out watching movies and stuff. the computer itself is doing good, but i suggest blowing your laptop out frequently and perhaps cleaning the cd drive out once in a while to help it last longer. Don't know where your going but be safe and god bless.

You may pay a little more, but my Vaio's have always done right by me. We all chipped in and got a satellite link up for intenet service in the motor pool when I was in Iraq. 15 months of use out doors, In and out of Humv's, and convoy trucks in my bag. 2 IED attacks, one that put my truck on its side with no problems. I refuse to buy another brand. Now my son use's that lap top because I upgraded myself, and wife to 2 new Vaio's last NOV. They cost a little more, but they have good strong hinges, and if you ask me can take a hit. The only other lap tops that look as strong is the heavy duty ones I think Toshiba makes. Be Safe, take care of your self, and come home like you left.......... And Thank you.
