Default Pick a laptop for me

I narrowed it down to a few choices. It will just be used for Interweb surfing, emailing, looking at pics, just the basic stuff and maybe some MS tuning. The Dell is the only refurbished one the others are new. I've had pretty good luck with Dell but im not totally happy with their physical construnction. I know nothing about Acer's and as for the E machines, I have two desktops but dont know anything about the quality of their laptops.

Thanks

I picked up 2 of the e machine laptops last week, just like the second one you have listed.
picked them up on eBay for $379.00 each. They are not as fast as my new Lenovo, but they are perfect for the teenage kids that will be receiving them for Christmas.

out of those choices, id go with the dell mainly because ive delt with dells on an enterprise level and their CS is outstanding. i guess having a corporate account helps.

I would have gone with this one, but it just ended.

I wouldn't even get any of the others.
