Wanted: Basic laptop (running WinXP)

Wanted:
Basic laptop (running WinXP)

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I'm after a basic, simple laptop for my elderly father-in-law. He is quite disabled and has trouble with his hands & eyesight. They have an aging P4 desktop, and he has a Kindle Fire HD, which does most things he needs apart from managing his iTunes library (it's impressive for a 70 year old!), and it's not ideal for watching movies with his eyesight. Originally, he wanted a brand new laptop, but we are convinced that he will drop it, so the plan is to get him a cheap laptop, then if he hasn't dropped it in 6 months, then look at a new one. He's familiar with Windows XP too, so no learning curve (bonus at this stage)

I'm looking for something fully functional (I'm ok if Windows is toast, as long as it comes with a disc), in good condition (nothing broken or keys missing or anything like that). It would be nice if the battery wasn't completely knackered as well, but if I can get hold of a new one I guess that'd be ok. I'm not after much spec-wise - I guess a P4/Athlon as a minimum, or better if possible. No bigger than 15.4" though, he'll never lift it (I think he'll even struggle with one that size, 12-13" is probably ideal)

I know I'm a bit optimistic, but people upgrade and I'm hoping that they have their old laptop in a cupboard gathering dust!
