Ugh, can't believe i'm posting this.
I have a female friend who's looking for a netbook/laptop. I asked her what specs and price range she was looking for and these were:
*Has to be Pink
*10.1" to 14" screen
*£200 - £450
*relatively lightweight (i assume she means anything under ~2.4kg)
*She'll be using it mostly for Uni, so MS Office, bit of light java (alice.org, processing.org), surfing net
*She wants to be able to play fable (first one) on it, so i assume something with DirectX9 capabilities
*battery she says she doesn't mind about carrying Power Supply providing it's not too heavy
*doesn't have to have bluetooth or HDMI
gawd. If she didn't mind about it being pink or not, i'd have no trouble finding a laptop for her but she definitely wants pink. it was her number one priority lol.
I saw the Sony Vaio http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sony-vaio-vpcm12m1e-p-pink-netbook-/799342
deal, but it seems to come with Windows 7 starter pack and a very poor GPU which probably wouldn't play Fable.
Any suggestions are very welcoming!
EDIT: Fable the lost chapters minimum specs are:
* One of the following Windows XP operating systems:
o Windows XP Home Edition
o Windows XP Professional
o Windows XP Media Center Edition
* A computer that has a 1.4 gigahertz (GHz) equivalent or a later version processor.
* Microsoft DirectX 9.0 or a later version of Microsoft DirectX. Microsoft DirectX 9.0c is installed by Fable: The Lost Chapters.
* 256 megabytes (MB) of system RAM.
* 3 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space.
* 32x speed or faster CD-ROM drive.
* 64 MB shader-capable video card.
* A sound card and either a set of speakers or a set of headphones are required for audio.
* A Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device.
(I can always rip the game onto USB and install it that way... if the netbook/laptop doesn't have a CD/DVD-ROM
