    Where can i buy a good laptop for not a lot of money?

    I want a laptop that has a DVD drive, touch-pad like on the mac book, pretty thin, light up keyboard and less than $300.
    I guess im aiming a little high but i thought id ask.
    I currently have a chrome book which i like, but i cant install Ubuntu on it.

    Thanks,
    tahdas

    Which Chromebook?
    I'm sure that someone will have Ubuntu installed on it soon.

    As for your request - a Macbook like-touchpad is non-existent except on Macbooks, to my knowledge. DVD drives are on the way out in thin laptops / netbooks / ultrabooks too - might have to accept an external.

    I not sure the of the model number of the chrome book, but I know it would require skills I don't hav ego install another OS on it. I searched eBay, but it's all above my range, which is Really $200 max.

    I think I might have to build a computer, is this hard? Can I do it for less than $200?
    I have a old desktop maybe I could salvage parts.

    Thanks,

    Those laptops dont look like what i want. And $200 is the max i'll go. If there was a macbook for $200 id jump for it.
