My daughter is about to go off to college for her freshman year, and we need to get her a laptop. Considering that she's likely to lose/drop/break the thing, and the fact that she's not a power user by any means, I'd like to spend under $450. She's just going to be using the web and the Microsoft suite of programs, and no games or high end video stuff. I just want something reliable without the bells and whistles.
Can anyone recommend something for this type of user?
