    Hail TPU'ers ... Old Uncle Kreij needs your help.

    A young girl who works with us is starting school and is looking for a laptop that she can use for school work (documents, spreadsheets, etc.) and Internet activities (casual browser games, facebook, etc.).

    Me and Mrs. Kreij have sort of taken her under our wing as our "adopted" daughter and want to help her out.
    The problem is that her income is pretty meager and she cannot afford much.
    I would get her one, but I spent all my extra money having contests here on TPU. :ohwell:

    So if some kind soul has a fairly decent laptop (or knows someone with one) that they are willing to part with for not a lot of money (~$200 to $300), I will climb the nearest mountain and shout praises about you for at least 5 milliseconds.

    I don't have much feedback in my heatware, so just ask around if you want to find out if I am honest and good for what I say I will do.

    Thanks all. :toast:

    Are there minimum specs you want and a preferred form factor? Specifically are Atom based netbooks out of the running?

    I'm will consider anything, but would prefer a notebook over a netbook.

    Would be great for a student. Not too large, not to weak(hardware wise).
