My friend (next to me) is having a birthday in about 2 hours and he is getting a laptop. He has not yet chosen a model but he is looking at this:

He will need the laptop for:

word processing

web

a little bit of animation (maybe)

light gaming (fs2002, fs2004, etc.)

 

any suggestions would be great

 

Edit: He is also considering ibook

 

Edit2: budget <= $1200

No it has a 32mb video card and those are old can t really play any kind of new games. If you want to play some games try to get one with a 64mb video card. OR if you want the best get one that has 128mb video card.

 

What kind of games are we talking about not sure what fs2003 or fs2004 is?
