I want to buy someone a new laptop - would prefer a 17inch screen. They work on word documents etc, surf the net and use outlook express, don't game or need anything fast but would like a decent battery life and memory. Any suggestions welcome. as running out of time.

preferably new as I'm a bit wary of buying second-hand as a present

Wrong, a smaller screen would only be better if thats what the user wants / needs.

yeh well i meant it easy to carry and give good battery life n with 17" you got limitation like low battery power n you can stick it on your lap all day plus it is bulky to carry.....any way good luck with the find, n hopefully the person like it as well
