Need a (very) budget laptop

Looking for a new laptop for the wife... 99% for web surfing/email/watching hulu. I was really thinking of a netbook... but she seemed to balk at the tiny screen. The only game that would possibly be played on it is WoW, and it doesnt have to be played at a super high setting to keep her/me happy.... Ive got a pretty decent desktop for that.

I'd love to keep it under $450 US. I was thinking that the Acer Aspire AS5517 ($399 on newegg) would be sufficient. Anybody know of a better deal? Think it could handle dinking around on WoW?

Thanks in advance

Screen Size doesnt really matter, as long as its not a 10 in netbook. She really didnt seem to dig that. 14 in would be fine.

I have some good gaming laptops to recommend but your budget is a little bit low. Currently a gaming laptop that meet your requirement is about $700 or above...
