Computer?

Computer?

Unfortunately, I'm in the market for a computer. I don't want to get something dodgy that's going to break down in three months, but I also don't want to spend a lot of dough. I'm okay with either desktop or laptop (I prefer laptop, but beggars can't be choosers). I have an external HD to save all my pictures, files, etc. on so it doesn't need a ton of memory. Just the cheapest thing for the best value... An included printer/scanner would really rock, but I'll take what I can get. Anybody know of any amaaazing deals going on right now? Discount sites that aren't sketchy? Links? Thanks! ETA: I do some graphics work on them - nothing that would require a superfancy computer, just stuff for my website, and a bit of color tweaking on my art - but I worry that a smaller screen might not cut it (in talking about the Eee and such)? Basically, I need it to: send emails, type papers, make spreadsheets, do some design stuff (publisher or whatever I can get free, GIMP), hold a couple files while I transition them to my external HD from my camera, connect to the internet like whoa, and that's aboooout it. Playing music is nice, but not a priority. I love games, but don't have time for them, so that's not a big deal. I rock the hell out of my computer, though, so it's gonna get a lot of use... Any words on refurbs?
