This is what she needs the laptop to do.

•skype
•sims 3
•web browsing
•word processing
•watch movies
•art - drawing on a graphics tablet


Price range
Absolute max £450, would prefer something cheaper, but it has to be able to performance.

It also has to be something easily accessible from the UK highstreet stores (PCWorld, curry's, argos etc)

I don't know of many UK laptops, but I can tell you what to look out for:

PROCESSOR
Intel i5 or i7, make sure NOT to get one with a 'u' at the end of the model number
AMD A8 or A10 processor

GPU
Nvidia, make sure for a 720M or higher.
AMD, look for Radeon 'M' series. I'm no master of AMD technology, but Radeon Dedicated should be perfect.

These are the two big thing to make sure of. Good luck, mate ;)
