So I'm looking for a notebook for my mom.

She wants a 15.4" screen with a webcam. She also wants extra battery and a Dual-Core and at least 2Gigs of ram. OS doesn't matter between Vista or XP. Integrated graphics is fine. I would like to see her get a nice reliable notebook such as Lenovo. But I want to hear your opinions/ideas.

The budget is 1grand.

Thanks for the help.

you can get the xps1530m for that...
right now it will go a little over a grand with tax and shipping, but if you wait i am sure it will be one sale..

Lenovo R series Thinkpad should be a good machine for your mom, and maybe even an ideapad (not sure how the support is for those though) or the SL Thinkpad. I have also heard that Fujitsu makes some good machines.

It is a Good Suggestion that the OP's mother, who would be okay with integrated graphics, should get a gaming laptop. That will be an Effective Use of Money.
