a good deal? It's a Lenovo G580 Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 2.5GHz 15.6" for $599. My uncle left his job and had to give up his work provided laptop. Thus, he's now using one so old it has windows 2000.

He only uses the pc for:
Causal games - texttwist, words with friends, scrabble, etc
Surfing the Internet
Microsoft Office stuff - Word and Excel. Actually mostly just Word.
Blogging - if he ever figures out how
Maybe Skype one day
The computer should be good quality, able to last 3 or 4 years.
He is in his 50s and the opposite of computer savvy so the company should have really good technical support. Since his job did all the tech support on his work pc (it was a Dell) I'm sure I will get roped into providing support if the company's support sucks.
Any other computer suggestions welcome.
