Hi folks,
I'm looking to buy a budget laptop for my mother, nothing too expensive, and hopefully nothing too complex to use.

Had a look around and I am finding it very confusing, the choice seems endless.

I have found this HP model - it says it's a Pavilion ze2401EA.
And at £410, it seems like a good price for it's features.

It's on the front page here:

Any thoughts on this model?
Any advice appreciated.

Thanks all.

The mid- to high-end business HPs are very good, but I can't comment directly on the ultra-budget end. They get good reports.

I'll have to disabuse you of the notion of finding something that is not complex; all PCs are complex to the same degree at the end of the day, despite MS's best efforts. Computing rookies face a fairly steep learning curve, so be prepared to help your mum as much as she needs if this will be her first PC.
