    Hi Everyone

    I am going to be enrolling in an online course for which I will need to purchase a new computer.

    Knowing nothing about computers I really need some help with my search. The requirements I need are below. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    -PC Computer (Not MAC)
    -4-6 GB's of memory
    -Intel Pentium Processor is preferred
    -Windows 7, 8 or vista
    -Internet explorer 8 or greater
    -firefox 8.X or greater
    -adobe flash version 7 or greater
    -javascript and cookies must be enabled

    Go to Wal-Mart or Bestbuy.....most laptops meet those requirements. Don't let them sell you 'Cadillac' laptops. A quick look at Walmart.ca and decent laptops start at $388, and BestBuy starting at $400. You may find something during the Boxing Day sales too.

    I was thinking boxing day sales as well...I don't need anything super fancy, just something dedicated to my course and work afterwards!

    @wimbly11 .....the following should not be deal breakers for you, as they can easily be upgraded / loaded / enabled and deactivated. Focus on good processor (CPU, Intel prefered) and more RAM (memory)

    -Windows 7, 8 or vista
    -Internet explorer 8 or greater
    -firefox 8.X or greater
    -adobe flash version 7 or greater
    -javascript and cookies must be enabled
