    My sister has asked me to help her find a laptop on a tight budget, not more than or as close to $550 as she can get. It is for home use, light Word and Excel work, she will need to do some one on one video conferencing with it. I've always used HP laptops and have been very satisfied with them but my budget has been a lot higher. I am looking at an HP Pavilion 15t laptop for $556 with the following configuration. Any opinion on this system? Any recomendations for other possible laptops?
    Thanks
