    Any brand/model# suggestions for a laptop from one you have bought and are using in the last six months yet being sold that is:
    - quiet, fan seldom kicks on, one that is not Core Duo which generates more heat.
    - since have the less than 20/20 vision, a display that can be adjusted to or something close to 1024 x 768, even if text is a little fuzzy adjusting from the machines native resolution. Also ideally a brighter display with text darker than fainter will too be helpful.
    - ideally around 15" display, but 2nd choice is around 14", and 3rd choice is around 17".
    - 1GB of memory (or better).
    Primarily the machine will be used for text such as internet browsing, email, Excel, Word, and not graphics.
    Thanks in advance.

    You should be able to find what you want at almost any Computer Store! If you use large fonts and "Cleartype" you should not have a readability problem at all.

    Native resolutions at or above 1024 x 768 are basically generic now, as is the availability of the 'Brightview' type of display.

    If you buy a machine with a 'mobile' designated processor, they should be quiet, since they are low power consumption by design (less heat).

    Go shopping, look and listen...that's the best way to get what you want...hands on!
