But that only has Atom processors sadly, which may not work for her needs.

That is a great quad CPU that does everything my Toshiba 15" laptop with an i5 does. And nearly at the same speed. This is not your grandfathers Atom CPU. And it uses only 2 Watts. The battery lasts for 12 hours.

Oh maybe I was underestimating the power of Atom processors. Now that I think about it, they are better than my Pentium processor on my laptop. (New Pentium not Pentium I in case you were wondering)

I am sure it beats a Pentium hands down - and with a lot less power consumption. That in combination with the SSD makes for a great little rig. My wife loves it. She only had to get used to the small keyboard. She is a power typist. For me it does not make any difference. I still type with 2 fingers, LOL.

Thanks for your input all, appreciate it.
The store's "In Stock" supply of W7 laptops was somewhat limited, I ended up buying her a Toshiba. Had W7 Home Premium 64 bit, 15.6" screen, 4G Ram and 500G HD, and a 2.4G Intel Processor, cost $429.
I didn't think that sounded too bad. The next step up in stock would've been another $250.
The wife didn't want to spend more so I got off easy!

Is it the T135? The specs sound exactly like mine.

Here's one to try with a nice price and fast Core i3, also more RAM than usual on these $399 specials: Toshiba C55-A5100 Laptop, Internet Security Software, Sleeve, Mouse & Flash Drive Package

The benefit of buying from Best Buy is that you get to trial it for 15 days with no-questions-asked money back guarantee. I tried a dozen over two years until I found the Lenovo G500 core i5 also $399 which lacked any fatal flaw. So testing them first is a good idea to get the one which suits you best.
