Just as the title reads, I am looking to buy a lappy for school, and I do not want to spend over $600. PC is for school so will be mostly used for web browsing and simple programming. No netbooks (too damn small).

I really dig this (mostly the way it looks :p but the specs are not bad as far as I am concerned.

Any suggestions?
