So as long as it runs well, will run for a while, we are good.

Like mentioned above, this laptop is for my parents who do their internet facebook stuff, watch youtube videos, do some checkbooking, play some small flash games, and sometimes do some word processing. This would preferably be something that boots fast, is stupid friendly, and can last a while.
