Windows 7: Advice on purchasing a new laptop

windows 7 home premium 64bit

I will go on a cruise trip next week and on the way back I will be staying in Maimi for a week.
I am thinking of going to Tiger Direct and Best Buy. If I buy on line it will cost a lot getting it in Aruba.

Does Tiger Direct have retail stores? I've never seen any.

Costco sells Dells, but they may not be Vostros.

Best Buy sells Dells too.

If you want a Vostro (matte finish), you may have to buy online. But I'd look at Best Buy online to see if they sell that line from Dell. They may sell only the home line, not small business??

Well guys, I think I found it.
Dell Vostro 3750 core i3/2 GB DDR3 single channel/250 GB 7200 RPM/17.3" LED display with anti-glare
6 cel ion battery for $600,= if online.
I hope I can find it at Tiger Direct (yes there is a retail store in Miami)
I only need a computer or laptop to search the web. To me the screen is very important,
so I can live with this anti-glare. I am not eighteen any more.
I might go for a 4 GB dual channel and 350 GB 7200 RPM if there is no much difference in price.
Thanks to all of you.
You guys have been very supportive.
ignatsatsonic thanks for the article.
