What types of games? No need getting high-end graphics when she just plays SIMs or Helly Kitty Adventure Island.

Yea sorry for not including budget it's around 700-1000€//900$-1300$

but note that the laptops may be more expensiver here than over there

games are more like World Of Warcraft and other RPG games is more her style

but she has to run it past her parents so cheeper "would" be better

EDIT**

HP offers the Pavilion dv6000t (Core (2) Duo) and dv6000z (Turion), they're 15.4", with nVidia Go 7200/7400. You can easily configure a dv6000z with most of what you'll want and stay under 1000$ : 2gig of memory, bluetooth, camera, dvd burner, Vista Premium...(on the HP USA website, however).

Dell also has the Inspiron 1420/1520/1720 (first 2 numbers is the screen size), you can configure them similarly, but they cost a bit more than HP's I think.

EDIT: you can customize Dells and HPs on their US websites, though finding the one you really want in Finland might be hard because they might only have pre-built setups...
