I am trying to help my uncle buy a laptop for when he travels and he asks that it be a "simple" system that he can check his e-mail with (so wireless card coming with it), fairly decent speed, resolution, etc.

He would like to spend at most a thousand dollars.

Any comments appreciated.

Thanks

You can buy a iBook 12" with Built-in wireless, it's small easy to carry and easy to use for only $999. Currently MacosX does not get affected by Spyware or Viruses, something else to consider.
