Default New Laptop for School

I was wondering if you guys here at Tech Forums could try to help me find a laptop/notebook for my sister. She would only be running thing like, web browsers, word, and maybe itunes. I was looking at Dell laptops and the Leveno Think Pad. Price around 800 or less. Thanks in advance.

Definitely the cheapest one, as she's not doing anything heavy. No need to spend more than the Toshiba. I was thinking of getting that Satellite myself, just for internet and word.

Would she be interested in a netbook? They are really small and portable
The Acer Aspire come in different colors and are really pretty...not to mention about 300 bucks
