But unfortunately those systems are not within the price bracket of the OP.
NO, I wont being that.

It's amazing how much better technology gets. I bought my laptop 4 years ago for $800 and it is nothing compared to these lower priced laptops now.

The HP is what I would go for. Seems to be the best buy for the money.

Are those prices for new laptops ?!?

I'd go with the Toshiba - yeah 70gb less than the HP, 1 less USB and no webcam - but $150 cheaper, she can get a 1.5tb ext. drive for less than the difference if needed.

Here's an Asus with more harddrive space than all of them- ddr3 ram, webcam, 3 usb ports, but a slightly slower processor (2.13ghz) which I'm sure she won't even notice the difference.

ASUS - Laptop / Intel® Pentium® Processor / 15.6" Display / 3GB Memory / 500GB Hard Drive - Mood Indigo - K52F-BIN6

Thanks for your opinion, but more detail please! Why wouldn't you buy one of those?

Underpowered processors all across the line, I would never buy a Pentium or a Celeron, no matter what generation as it won't be able to handle anything with just a couple updates and within a year will be too slow to even watch videos without like Ubuntu, I would never buy anything without DDR3 memory, and HP is the only company out of the 4 that is half decent. Hope that helps.

When I bought my first laptop two years ago, I learned a very valuable lesson. Everything you find out about a particular computer "on paper" is all well and good --- but as supanatral said above, you really need to see these computers in person and try them out. That may very well change your whole feeling about a system.

I was down to my 2 favorites -- after researching laptops for a long time --- but when I went to Best Buy to see them in person, I didn't like the look or feel of either one of them. However, I did see a couple of other systems I hadn't really considered -- loved the look and feel of them, and ended up happily with an HP dv5t --- that I still love to this day!
