Default Laptop Recommendation

I am looking for a laptop to buy for my dads birthday. My budget is 300$ - 400$. Do you guys have any good recommendations?

If you wouldn't mind it please give us a sample of what your father does on a normal computer and we will go from there.

I maybe wrong but look into this laptop here:
Newegg.com - ASUS A53 Series A53U-XE3 Notebook AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350(1.6GHz) 15.6" 3GB Memory DDR3 1333 320GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi AMD Radeon HD 6310
Its a perfect fit for your budget, plus since your dad will be using it for multimedia purposes I think the cpu/video card combo will be enough to handle his needs.

The only problem I see is the hdd size, but if he needed 500gb he could use it down the road.
