Thank you for your reply.
I ended up getting the laptop.
When I was buying it I ran the hd,ram and battery test in BIOS and everything checked out.
Also I checked the Computrace status (very important when buying a laptop!)
and it was disabled.
I got a receipt from owner with important info (name address and serial number)
I installed Win7 Premium 64-bit (COA on laptop) with IE9 Beta.
Interesting install. good experience.
She likes it. She likes the HP Dr Dre Beats commercial LOL.
Hopefully last longer than her Del Vostro 1000 Athlon64 x 2 1.8ghz (bought used lasted 2yrs).
For a single core chip the Sempron M100 2.0ghz is decent.
Funny the M100 would blow away the old P4 EE HT from back in the day.
Really shows you how tech has improved.
