Re: buying a laptop
I think thats overkill for what shes looking for. I know my sister wouldn't use near that. For the things you said she would be using it for, check out an EEE pc. I would suggest the 10" models such as a 1000HA.
My Current PC-
Intel Q6600 G0 |Western Digital 250gb HD
Seagate 500gb HD | Western Digital 500gb HD | VisionTek HD4870 | 4gb Cruical Ballistix Tracer DDR2 800
850w Thermaltake PSU | Cooler Master Centurian 590 | 2x Dell 22" LCD
-900HA EEE pc
