What kind of laptop do you recommend?

My mom is getting me a laptop for christmas since mine broke this past month. What kind do you recommend? Looking for one for $500 or less, so definitely not a macbook (although that would be nice!). And as for what I use it for, just basic things. School, browsing the web. I dont download music or play games like crazy.
