Well first, what will you be doing on this computer? Any gaming? Watching DVDs? Just school reports? Internet of course. Of all the laptop brands, I would say that Sony, IBM and Toshiba have served many people well.
You didn't answer my question The type of processor you will need depends on how you will use the computer. For example, if you will be using the laptop for gaming, and other applications that require good speed, you want an AMD processor over an Intel. If you won't be doing any of this however, Intel works fine for you. Keep in mind that a laptop with an AMD processor is a bit hard to find, and could be costly compared to the traditional Intel-based laptops.
Well, if you won't be gaming, an Intel will better suit your needs. I would say an Intel Celeron Processor is good for you, as it saved battery life. Don't get a processor with any less than 1.6 GHz on it, as that will be a bit slow. As far as RAM, stick with at least 512 MB to stay safe. You can get away with 256 MB, but that might not work best for you. As far as brands, Try to stick with Sony, IBM or Toshiba. One last recommendation... When you make a laptop, build it to last. Once you build it, don't try to change the graphics card, or processor, anything like that. Build something that will still serve you good for a few years.
