Hey all, My friend just gave me a call saying she was looking for a laptop to replace her 6 year old one. She's got a budget of 700 (or less preferably) and is looking for something reliable that will last a while w/ good battery life. She doesn't do all that much of intense things such as gaming, just the usual of watching a movie here or there, music and internet surfing. She is also not opposed to a netbook idea either w/ an external dvd drive. What do you all think, any recommendations?
