Lowbudget Laptops

by raul90606 / July 2, 2006 9:57 PM PDT

I 'm looking to purchase a low budget laptop. They have three good deals.

The purpose for the laptop is to watch a few DVD'S but 99% for work related (word, excel, powerpoint).

They have HP dv8305 for $699.00, Hp dv8000z for $499.99, and compaq v5108cu for $599.99, all prices are after rebates..

Which one is the best one?
