Default Looking for a new laptop. Any advice?

So my mom is looking to get herself a new laptop, since her 5 year old Toshiba isn't quite cutting it. I'm more of a desktop guy, and don't really know where to look in the laptop industry. She will be using it for surfing, movies & media, and gaming(not very demanding games though). The only real limitations are that it should have a minimum screen size of 17", the larger the better. The budget is 700-800, but we'll be looking for one used. MSRP comparative budget would be about 1000-12000. The asus G70 series comes to mind, but I feel like it won't be pushed graphically nearly enough to justify the price. Any other ideas?

Can I just ask 700-800, what currency are we talking?

Never heard of ComputerValley.

You ever consider getting a 14" and an external LCD screen?

Well, here's what I found in the $700-800 range with a 17" screen. Has a dedicate GPU, albeit not a very strong one.

Newegg.com - Acer Aspire V3-771G-6601 Notebook Intel Core i5 2450M(2.50GHz) 17.3" 6GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M

Well, at that price range, that's about as good as your going to get.

Don't get a used laptop, please. You won't get warranty otherwise.
