Cheap Computer from Futureshop?

Futureshop is an electronics store in Canada. Can anyone recommend some cheap laptop to buy for my mom? All she'd ever do is:
Watch a DVD
The best thing would be for me to buy it on their site and ship to her.

|One of these two I guess:|
If you're willing to pay a bit more, Dell gives 24 hour tech support and a better warranty.

|I'd go for this:|
Since she watches DVD's and views pictures I'd go for a 17" screen instead of the 15". You don't need an i3 or i5 for those tasks. Dual core is more then sufficient.

|Would she have any interest in plugging the computer into a TV?|
Might consider making sure the system has HDMI.

|I guess we'll wait until the start of November to check again. She's going to see if someone else gets her a computer.|
