Walmart and buy a $400 laptop. If it dies and by chance can't be fixed, buy another one for $400. Your luck can't be that bad, and you will still save money over the $1000 system that you won't need.
Need/Want one under/about $1000.
Is that realistic?
Brands: HP, DELL, or ACER?
I need wifi, [email junkie!] AT&T

Missed a great deal on a HP package deal for $999. went up for $1300. the next day! BUMMER! strike while the iron is hot to do something immediately while you have a good chance of achieving success. You may not get a better offer - I'd strike while the iron's hot, if I were you.
