- 533 MHz FSB
- 1 MB Cache
- 1024 MB RAM
- 80 GB Hard Drive
- DVD ReWriter MultiDrive
- 15.4" Widescreen HD Brightview Display
- Microsoft Windows Media Centre
- 128 MB Intel GMA 950 shared Graphics
- 1 Year FREE Warranty

Many thanks in advance for your help.

It all depends on what she will use it for.

Have to agree with me1982.
If its for student work then it will probably be fine as will any other laptop.

Snap it up and you will be OK for years. Check your student insurance to make sure that it is covered though.

Does she play the sims or any other games? If so this laptop is unlikely to be the best at playing it. Otherwise sounds to be good value for money.
