    Friend asked me to recommend a laptop, so I took a look at Dell.com and
    there's a Vostro 1000 system for $499 that seems like a helluva deal. 1GB
    RAM, dual core AMD, DVD burner, etc. I told him to get XP not Vista. My
    only question is the 29WHr battery - seems kinda wimpy?

    It's a $499 budget system. Probably options in the configuration to bump
    that to a battery with longer life for more $$$.

    What age is the user? Is this for college, and if so will it be
    carried around and use for things like note taking?

    If screen real estate isn't necessary, an outlet XPS M1210 would be
    the most useful for many students that need something powerful,
    portable, and durable -- having a light laptop vs. a heavier one is a
    big factor if also carrying heavy textbooks.
