which laptop around $900

Hey all, I need to get the missus a laptop for christmas (last minute I know)...
I am a computer dumba*s... I literally have no idea what all the numbers mean and acronyms mean. I never cared and do not have th epatience to learn. My hearing turns off after about 45 seconds.

Anyways. I am looking for a lap top for the wife. She mostly just surfs the net, (facebook that kind of stuff) but is in nursing school so needs that capability.
And I think she wants a fairly good screen (her old mac that just took a dump had a 15 inch screen which she hated)

Macs are super expensive and her last two crapped out super quick...pc this time..

Any recommendations or links to good sales?

If thats all she does, you can find a nice one for her way cheaper than $900

Is she wanting one with a big screen or something a little more portable?

if all she's doing is net surfing and occasional documents, a $900 machine is way overkill. I know you don't want to cheap out on the wifey but, a $500-$600 machine will do what you're asking with ease.
