I'm looking for a laptop to use any place in my home.
For internet email and surfing with limited gaming.
I've been researching, reading and looking for months! Need help.
I have Time Warner cable modem internet connection.
I have seen so many reviews, posts and options.
I know all brands have their good and bad points. Gets confusing and stressful in deciding.
Like to stay within and up to $700. Under $700 is allot better.: )
Like to have Dual core or dual 2 duo with at least 2+memory, 2 GHz biggest hard drive possible. A screen size at least 15+" easier to see. Maybe 14+ if price is cheaper.
Can you suggest a brand and model that is reviewed best for my $$$$.
FYI: I have a new Dell desktop and an old desktop that I'm going to hook up for my grandkids.
Suggestions on routers would be appreciated.

I'd say you're deciding between these two. The only difference is the more expensive one gives you a 320GB HD compared to 200GB with the cheaper one.
If you're willing to spend a little bit more, you can get this one which has all the same specs as the $600 Toshiba above, but also has a discrete graphics card which will be better for gaming.
