Opinions on laptop for Goddaughter

So I promised my goddaughter a laptop if she not only passed but got "commended" on her Math and Reading TAKS tests, and guess what? She did it! So yeah I'm happy about that. Now I have to keep up my end of the bargain.

She wants a gray laptop and she wants a DVD player. So she's not asking for much, but I want it to be new. I feel bad getting it off Craigslist as a gift for her. Anyway...

Here's the problem. I've only got about $400 to spend. Can I even get a semi-decent laptop for that price range?

Tell me if something like this is possible:

dual-core or core2duo
at least 2 gigs ram
at least 100gb hard drive
DVD rw
and it has to be gray.

If I can get a built in webcam that would be a plus.

Thanks guys!

not sure on the color, but Dell has quite a few laptops under 400, and i'm not talking about netbooks.

I think we ordered a Vostro 1000 not too long ago for under 350, but it was black.
