    I have to choose one for a friend of mine, but I'm not sure what to pick.

    I guess the mimimum specs should be like:
    Not sure for the proc.
    15.4 Display
    512MB Ram
    60GB HDD

    Brands: Dell or Acer (Toshiba also)

    The laptop is for a 11 years old boy (games, surfing & using Word, Excel for study purposes)

    Any help is appreciated

    Thank you.

    Im on an Acer TravelMate 2413LCi which cost me about £600 new but they are going for around the £500 mark now.

    1.5Ghz celeron
    15 Inch Display
    60Gb Hdd
    256Mb DDR2 ram

    So it meets all of your spec except for the ram, im sure a cheap second module could be added if you wish.
