    I don't like the 5gig per month limit. I'm guessing it would take a lot of web browsing and instant messaging, etc, to reach that limit, but still....

    If you were going to get the plan anyhow (or be reimbursed for it) I think it's a good deal. But beyond that I'd just get the laptop without it. And assume you can use the wireless at a coffee shop or something.

    I bought this laptop at Walmart, and once the junkware was removed, it was awesome! Running XP it was quite fast. I did return it, however, for a bonafide 14" laptop because I wanted more of a desktop replacement.

    I would suggest you get the model with the 6 cell battery. The larger battery lets the computer last about 6 hours, IIRC, while you only get about 3 from the normal battery. I'm not sure if the Shack carries the 6 cell model, but the 6 cell model was only $20 more from Walmart (online only but free shipping to your store).
