My mom's looking for a used laptop thats less than 600 dollars Canadian, hopefully sub 500. She'll wont be using it for any heavy stuff but she wants something that she can carry around and use whenever. The big things she wanted were at least a 40 gig hard drive, hopefully 60 gig, a dvd reader drive for when we're on the road and it can't be a million pounds or be slow as sin while running windows XP.
We found a refurbished one on tigerdirect.ca for 600 dollars that has everything she wants plus a little extra so it isn't uber slow later on.
Here's the link for the Laptop. I wanna know if this is something we should buy. It is good enough for our uses, as far as I know, although I have no idea if a celeron M is good enough for anything better than DOS and if this thing is a real POS. Can you show me the path to enlightenment, O fathers of mobile computing?
