Cheap ass computer

My shitty laptop's video card got fried and now the dumb thing isn't working. I'm broke so I'm looking for somewhere to get a cheap computer to hold me over. I don't need it for gaming, just surfing the net. Best Buy has stuff for around 250 but I'm going to go ahead and ask around to see if anyone knows of any good places to find something cheap? Also anyone ever buy a computer on ebay?

I have not. You wont find anything cheaper than $300 at a walmart though. Online be the best place to look. Like TigerDirect. That is assuming you want it new.

Why not just use your consoles to surf. Netbooks are the cheapest, otherwise go second hand if this is a temp machine.

I would seriously recommend an Acer Netbook if you just need a computer and don't care about gaming abilities. They are some of the best netbooks and quite affordable.

Hey thanks, I did end up going for an Acer netbook, 220 bucks, not bad. Hopefully it'll be here Wednesday.
