Pretty much every brand has low cost laptops right now. Have a look at Dell, they are certainly cheap. Acer, Dell and HP usually tops the customer satisfaction lists. Well Apple tops the list, but they dont make computers in your price range. Apple is closely followed by the other three at least :)

I got my laptop for $430 (R3000), it's a Samsung RV510. Really nice and simple to use. Not had a single problem with it.
Or else look at Toshiba, my previous laptop was one of those and it still works but had to be repaired because the battery went funny.
