any pentium M (/ celeron M) or higher computer is fairly fast with xp (if not overloaded with unneeded software). this includes all todays new computers and many second hand computers dell - is great computer. buy it if you want a laptop that works well thinkpad - the computer that survives the unbelievable. but is expensive. buy it if its gonna have hard life hp - sis of a friend has one and looks like she is happy with it. and the computer looks happy too. but it has very easy and peacefull life compared to normal use of a laptop lg - too breakable plastics apple - pay more to get less (and to further extent if you take the OS into account too) processors - if you buy old look for pentium Ms and celeron Ms. if you buy new look into core duos (not core 2 duos). i expect those to have the best battery life (a thinkpad with core duo and 14 inch 1024X768 holds in real life allmost 4 hours on standard 50WH battery when idle and almost 3 hours in active use) operating system - if you get a computer with vista call the manufacturer to exchenge (if that fails try microsoft) BEFORE you power on the comuter for the 1st time. vista kills the battery and makes the computer way slower than it could be

Dells are fine. I would normally reccomend mac, bit you are looking forceomething cheaper I assume. Whatever you do, DO NOT BUY HP. I had an up laptop which went through three hard drives, the network card failed, the USB ports failed and the power supply caught on fire. And that was before the motherboard died.
