My wife had an HP DV6258SE and had loads of issues with it. I will never use another HP computer. Needless to say its out the window. She needs something for browsing the net, checking email, word processing with the word 2007 suite, maybe a few instant messengers. Its more or less for college course work. Size doesnt matter, the more portable the better I suppose. Wireless is a must. Ram isnt a big deal as I have the HP's 2Gbs still and most netbooks only take 2Gbs max anyways. Budget is the biggest issue. Looking around $200-$300 at the most. Im looking for suggestions, pros, cons, and issues that you have had.
