The Compaq Presario C500T is one of most inexpensive laptops on the market coming in at around $450. The base model of the C500T features an Intel Celeron M processor, a 15.4" screen, and includes Windows Vista Basic. While these emphasize the laptop's strong points, to get the price down the C500T cuts corners with a small 80 GB hard drive and includes only 512 MB of RAM. There are upgrades available however from the HP store.
