What are good laptops on the market as of late? Answered

I'm looking to buy my step mum a laptop for her birthday, but I have no idea what to get her... I'm looking for something light wieght and portable but still have enough space for games, or shows, or movies she might want to download. Also it has to be able to have a CD/ Game part (see I really don't know about laptops.... and computers) and good keyboard. I don't know what else she would like, but if there are any good laptops on the market right now with those things please tell me... Oh and also I'm kinda on a buget so no more than 500 hundred dollars, and if you do know the price that would help a LOT, thanks ;)

Dell and acer both make good laptops. Toshiba makes even better ones but they are sometimes very expensive. I would try to stay away from HPs as they are poorly made.

One other thing. You might have a hard time getting a cheap laptop right now. This is because there was some flooding in asia and a lot of hard drives and hard drive factories were destroyed. this means hard drive prices have tripled.

Good luck.

Thanks for your help :) I got a pretty good Dell laptop. It was for 599.99 but I don't really mind. And thank-you again so much!

Dell makes good laptops and their website is user-friendly. You can easily pick and choose things like price, screen size, processor size, memory etc to tailor to her needs and your budget.

The other option is to go to a store like Best Buy, because their sales staff is NOT on commission. (Commission sales staff make money off each sale and may try to sell you more than you need. Non-commission sales staff are more likely to sell you only what you need). They can also help you pick out the right laptop for her needs and your budget.
