Default laptop buying questions

can anyone tell me about laptop computers? A friend would like to buy one, and is not too picky about new / used, but I don't know much about them. She will use it for surfing, games and just monkeying around to pass time at work.

any tips or suggestions woill be a help.

Thanks.

Watch out for Sony laptops. They have extra security measures which can be a pain in the ass. I have stayed clear of laptops as I have never found them to be economical in time on reloads or money on purchase or upgrades.

Plus I never go anywhere..

muhaaaa

One thing to remember if this will be a gaming machine. Laptops use a compressed version of the 104 keyboard. I have found it necessary to plug in a regular keyboard when playing some games. Also, I recommend getting(if avaliable on Dell's machines) a radeon 7500 mobility with at least 32 MB DDR Vram or better. Otherwise, your graphics will just plain suck!
