Help Buying Netbook/Notebook From Bestbuy

Oct 30, 2010
I am needing to get a $500 or less netbook or notebook today and my only options are Best Buy, Office Depot, and Office Max.
I need it to surf the net and watch movies/netflix/youtube.
Would like for it to have decent size hard drive and be able to play 1080p videos if possible, and gaming is not a major concern for me at the moment.
Anyone have a suggestion or recommendation?
$500 is my budget but I can go a little over if needed.

talk to the sales manager (not a regular salesman) and get them to promise to take the laptop back if you decide you want a different one. Then just get the one you think works best, try it for a few days, and see what you think.
