Default Good laptop for $600 to $900. General use.

Have a friend looking for a laptop in that price range. Any suggestions? Will use it for general browsing and task.

Thank you

Does your friend have any specific things he/she is looking for in a laptop besides general browsing/task? Such as size, battery life, etc.?

No he's not picky. "CD Burner and to be able to watch DVD". Doesn't get any more simple then that! haha

Although the specs are way more than his requirements, it's at a great price:
