A friend of mine is off to uni this year. She wants to buy a laptop. She wants something with WiFi, 80Gb-ish HDD, 512mb ram, a 3 year warenty and 'not too heavy' (so I'm leaning towards notebook personally) for around 500 quid. She wont be doing anything more stressful than word processing, surfing the net and listening to mp3s I expect.
Any suggestions? The Acer's look decent to me.
