I am looking to buy my wife a netbook for our anniversary.
She really only uses it for youtube (most of all), MSN messenger, facebook, hotmail (so internet stuff) and occasionally plays some minor games (like Gamehouse stuff) and rarely though needs to have Microsoft Word.
She is also quite accustomed to Windows XP. I guess she could get used to Windows 7 (if need be) but not Ubuntu or Linux.
I'm not sure what spec I need. HDD doesn't need to be huge, 20gb or so would probably be ample. I do think 1gb RAM is essential though as well as Wifi and 6-cell battery. I'm not too concerned with 10 inch or 8 inch unless someone has any recommendations either way.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should be looking for? Are there any suitable deals out there? Are Samsungs really that much better than say, Acer? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I must add, I'm not in a big rush. Our anniversary is in December which is when I want it for. I am also looking to spend around the £200 mark.
