    Hi everyone,
    I build my own systems but need opinions for a laptop for my sister who lives in another state. She's ready to upgrade and plans on buying a new laptop.
    Her current PC is 11 years old. What I want her to get is something top of the line because she won't be upgrading again for another 10/11 years.
    She's not a gamer, just needs MS [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Office[/COLOR][/COLOR] and email. But i want her to have lots of speed cause she only has DSL and not cable like i have.
    And also because she won't be upgrading again anytime soon.
    Any and all recommendations would be appreciated.
    thanks
    danny

    how much do you want to spend ?

    MS Office does not come with any PCs as standard , unless theres some really special deal - so you will also have to buy the MS package - there are free alternatives - openoffice.org for example

    for basic use most machines will cover your needs for email and basic use of word and excel
