I'm looking to buy my 1st laptop which I will mostly use for email, facebook, web searches and photo storage. I really, really need advice. I'd like something that will last several years, costs no more than $600 or so and is not an Apple.I won't be using it for work and will rarely travel with it. I probably will use it about 1-2 hours per day on average.

You'll likely get better deals in the upcoming months as the new line of Intel processors (IvyBridge) is integrated into new laptops.

Sounds like all you really need is a tablet (email, facebook!) and an external hard drive to store pictures on.

If you like to play Facebook games they are slow on a tablet.

I have a laptop and an Asus transformer prime tablet. Love both but I wouldn't want to go without the laptop. Its takes longer for me to type on the tablet
