Re: Good laptop?
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.
