Default general use laptop...$700 budget

This is for the girlfriend's mom. She wants a laptop to replace her desktop. Just general use...Pictures and editing (not hardcore photoshopping/rendering or anything) will be the most done on it.

What's the best laptop for that? Has to be an in-store type place or a website that accepts checks because she doesn't have any credit cards.

Your best bet will be to go to BestBuy or a local shop. We dont know what you have around so we cant recommend shops that sell PC's other than BestBuy. We dont know if you would have them there or not.
