Notebook recommendations

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I've never had or dealt with Notebooks, and a friend is looking for
one. Any suggestions for a cheap one? Obviously, I'd like to avoid a
Celeron, but the prices seem to really jump when they go to a Pentium.
His needs are minimal, but I'd still rather avoid the Celeron. But if
it's going to be a couple hundred dollar difference, the Pentium isn't
worth the extra $. TIA!
