I'll go for #7, but if she's downloading movie from the web then I guess you better upgrade the HD to at least 160GB. 80GB is not enough, from my experience.

Like people have said before, if you think you're up to it, building your own would save you a lot and you could have a lot more for the money.

Definetely number 7. Whatever you do, just get more ram and it should be quick.
