for interweb, word processing etc be fine
Cheers, she sometimes plays online games via facebook etc, would it be OK?
yes facebook games ok, 3d shoot-em-up's probably not so great
Great, thanks :)

It could be an awfully slow processor, it is a Core 2 (penryn) Celeron but it's only a single core one. On the other hand it is very cheap for a 1.6kg laptop.

The low-end CULV processors aren't used much so I don't know how it actually performs. Have you had a play with it? Advent as the DSG brand (PC World/Dixons/Curries) so they may have it in their shops.

That's a lot heavier.
Yes but its going to be used for college work at presumingly why have spend money on something crappy like that.
I wouldnt waste money on an advent...they will last just over a year if your lucky!

Spend your £350 or maybe another £50 if you can and your find a dual cored processor which will last longer then 13months.
Thanks for all your help :)
