Default advice

my friend needs a laptop for his room, for general internet surfing, thats about it, and i have found these two laptops for his budget:

Dell Inspiron P2 333 Mhz, DVD, 128 MB RAM, usb ethernet adapter, dvd decoder, for $320.

NEC Versa P1 MMX 150 Mhz, 8X CD-ROM, 64 MB RAM, for $175.


what i am wondering is if the cheaper NEC will access the internet. I know its out of date, and slow, but it has a new battery, and the RAM can be upgraded to 256 MB, so is the laptop worth the money if its upgraded?

Or should he get the Dell with the DVD-rom and upgrade that?
