Default Good laptop?

My mother wants to get a laptop and I was helping her look for one. I found one in my search.

Hewlett-Packard - Special Edition Pavilion Notebook with AMD Turion™ 64 X2 - White - dv6448se

The reviews seem pretty good but I'm more familiar with desktops than laptops so I figured I'd double check. She'll be using it for basic things. Email, internet, music, movies, the like.

And if we fall, we all fall, and we fall alone

that looks good. the only thing that might be iffy is the moniter. 15.4" isn't very big, but I doubt that your mom will need anything big. But as far as portability and power for the basic things go that should be fine. if 900 is a good price and isn't too expensive for her, then i would say go for it and HP customer service is pretty good so their a good company to go with.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Okay, thanks for the help. She'll probably pick it up tomorrow.
