I'm looking to get my GF a laptop/notebook for under 400$, it's pretty much going to be used for browsing Facebook, youtube, webcamming.

I was thinking about getting her this.

Do you think that's worth the price? I'm trying to find something that look's good, but is also an alright PC. I know i could most likely find her a better laptop/netbook on Ebay for the same price that comes with a DVD/CD drive, but i don't really have a way to buy anything off ebay atm. Any other suggestions?

Isn't the B950 older then the B970? It would be nice to get one with a DVD burner, though.

It's the same series of entry level Sandy Bridge CPUs.
Realistically, you'd not be able to notice a difference in performance between 2.1Ghz vs 2.3Ghz CPUs.

Yeah, i'd be willing to go with a refurbished laptop, if the specs are nice.
