Default Cheap laptop for wife...

Hey guys,

My wife has decided she "needs" a laptop. All she'll do with it is surf the net, type up homework and maybe play some World of Warcraft. What's the cheapest, yet good, laptop I could get her? I'd like to stay well under 1k....if that's possible.

Thanks guys!

Doesn't look to shabby. Would it suffice WoW for her?
