Laptop thats light which doesnt overheat

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking for a laptop for my sister, hopefully not to big and bulky. Also her current laptop gets as hot as an oven so we are looking for a cool one.

Looking at spending 700$ CAD

17 inch screen with a webcam and a long battery life

500g hdd minimum

Windows 7 is a must

Dont really care about the brand, I am not that familiar with laptop brands anyway. But not used or refurbished preferably in black.

This laptop will be used for websurfing, watching movies, file transfer, skype (no gaming)

Thanks

I like the Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T, but it doesn't have a dvd drive.
