Well, the second one IMO. Depends on what he wants to do with it, what does he want to do with it?

Why is that, it does'nt have Duo-core tho, does that matter?

Well he just wants to have somthing that will last into the future 3-5years, and he can watch DVDs, get photos of his camera etc, you, maybe a little photoshop?

The first one then, but he may want to consider upgrading to 1GB RAM.

yeah that is what i thought he should do, is the duo-core that much better than the single core, maybe it only has 512ram cos it has duo core?

The core duo is vastly faster, get another 512 ram tossed in and it will be a very solid laptop for a while. 512 does not cut it anymore.
