Can anyone tell me if there is anything better that is available in a hurry! I know that Dell deals are available but there is a 3 week turn around at the moment.

Also, are there any shortcomings in the above that would make it unsuitable for a student - not into gaming but she will want it for course work, DVDs, music and so forth.

Thanks as always, Dio

"No that seems perfect for her needs, go for it!"

Cheers for that - probably will order later today.

Less RAM, smaller hdd but what of the processor?

Thanks for all those; I've gone for the HP from - will be more than adequate for what it will be used for.

Thanks all for the help.

Cheers, Dio
