She needs a new one asap for school. Can anyone recommend one? On a budget of around $300-$400. Has to be on newegg.

She's in LA right now, I don't have the laptop, so I can't look at it.

It's over two years old though, and has been having tons of problems. She told me that now it just doesn't turn on and she wants to replace it.

I would just drop down to an i3 for class, really no need for anything more powerful than that.

All she does is watch YouTube videos and Microsoft word... I don't she needs anything fancy.

heck, I use an old Dell D600 for class.. Its a piece of crap, but even its meager 1.8GHz Pentium M gets the job done lol

edit; not to mention the thing is freaking invincible, when i got it, there were dents all over it, and theres even a chunk of metal missing out of the case, and the thing still works just fine lol

dual core 4gb of ram should run a treat and it only being a dual core means it will run reasonably cool.
