my 5 y/o toshiba finally died (screen), and since the kids are on the other one a lot (an HP we bought a couple of years ago after the Toshiba's HD failed) playing games (web, not from disc) i wanna get them a cheap one so we can reclaim the other one for general use. so, what's the best option? refurbed model ebay something off tigerdirect et al. i am likely not gonna go the ebay route, not enough savings to justify the risk. any thoughts on particular brands? if i could stay w/ XP home/pro that would be a bonus, after hearing the horror stories re: Vista.
