Default Need some help

I have absolutely no computer knowledge. My son is going to Korea for a year in October and wants to get a lap top with a web cam as his wife and 3 children are not going wtih him. What is the best lap top and web cam? Oh, and he'll also be playing fantasy football with me so I want him to have a reliable computer.

Nearly anything on the market will do. Don't overspend. Most lap tops have webcams standard. You can go to newegg.com, and look at the prices.

I imagine those smallish laptops that are going for 200 bucks at best buy these days will work.

Others will know more, but this isn't that techy of thing to be worried about.

Depends on what all he wants. If he wants to be able to play games it'll be more pricey. If he wants to be able to type then a small notebook ($200-400) probably wouldn't be a good choice.

If he just wants something to help keep in touch with family then I'd go with something like this HP.

Be sure to ask him what size though. They vary from 8" to 18"

The primary reason is family but I'm sure he would love to play games also.

Buy it over there. Go to Costco in Korea, he will get a smoking deal.
Not kidding, korea has some electronic markets where they sell computers, all the locals go to Costco.

Plus if there is a problem costco will fix or replace it.

My good friend has a sister who is working in Korea, he just went to visit her and this is pretty much what she told him.

I was wondering if that might be the deal. I will tell him. Thank you all!

And Rev, he's the guy, she should be buying one for him!
