    Zero: Try going to your local dump. really. When I drop off stuff at the Electronic appliances Recycling dump theres always several desktops and monitors just sitting around. 'course you gonna need someone to tinker with it, hopefully you have someone in your house that have some computer skills.

    250: You can probably get a refurbished desktop from a reputable dealer for that. Try newegg.com or googling around.

    See you in a new existence!
    Notebooks go for $250-300. I have a factory refurbished one for $200 from this website: Desktop Computer System - Buy.com

    Craigslist is a great place to look too since you can take a look at the computer before buying (as opposed to Ebay).

    Another thing to keep in mind are peripherals, specifically the monitor. If your current monitor works fine, you can put the whole $250 budget into the computer instead of both a computer and a monitor.

    If you don't need the mobility of a notebook computer, desktops are much cheaper & widely available (brand new) for under $300.00. (if you mainly use it for the internet, a Netbook may serve your needs as well)

    Go to Wal-Mart. But a brand new cheap pc. Don't buy the cheapest one in the store, but somewhere near the bottom of cheap is fine. It will be 100 times faster and better than what you have now.

    Try craigslist: montreal Petites annonces d'emploi, de logements, de rencontre, de vente, de services, de communauté et d'événements, lots of bargains on lots of things there.
