Hey guys, I have a friend and she wants to buy a laptop for her studies - office needs.
She can't decide between

Dell Latitude 13 SU7300 4500MHD
Asus Eee PC 1215N

Can you guys please help? What's the better computer for the uni. studies?
Best answer for me will be your rough opinions on pros. and cons. for these 2 and a final decision between the 2.

Thank you!

Any other options available to her?

Dell Latitude 13 reviews
ASUS Eee PC 1215N netbook reviews

Maybe a Acer Aspire AS1430-4857 w/ Core i5 520UM(1.06GHz) 11.6" LCD Intel HD Graphics 4GB RAM 320GB HDD
Or Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3820T-7459 Core i3 370M(2.40GHz) 13.3" Intel HD Graphics 4GB RAM 320GB HDD

Netbooks don't quite measure up to laptop/notebooks in office productivity / educational multi-taking needs.
Passmark CPU benchmarks:
Intel Atom D525 @ 1.80GHz = 728
Intel SU7300 @ 1.30GHz = 975
Intel Core i5 520UM @ 1.07GHz = 1236
Intel Core i3 370M @ 2.40GHz 2193

get Asus Eee PC as it will provide better standby but performance-wise Dell latitude is better.
