Maybe I'll just... accidentally drop it. :P
Lol. My girlfriend is wanting a 10" pink netbook, and her parents are paying for it since it is for school. They are asking me if it is better than what she has, which specs wise it would be the same or slightly lower than what she currently has, but it's the best price option for them. She is not the techy-type and doesn't usually care about electronics other than their color. Her old laptop is very dirty and was never maintained (with software) so it is slow, freezes all the time, etc. Just yesterday I finally got on it and cleaned up like 2GB of junk files and like 1000+ registry errors.
I have a feeling if she could get a $500 small laptop of the 12-14" variety that had a dual core CPU it would be best, but usually those are either single core CPU's or more expensive than $500.
