I need help to buy my sister a new laptop. The last one I got her lasted 7 years (screen is starting to die and it's slow) and was an Acer which is here:
https://www.amazon.com/Acer-AS5745G-7671-15-6-Inch-Laptop-Black/dp/B0041RSEVA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1290791433&sr=8-1

She will only be using it for Office, browsing the web, or streaming Netflix. I'm thinking 1 TB HDD, 4 GB RAM, i3 processor would be fine. Her budget is preferably under $500. However, if it was me, I would probably pay extra to get a laptop with two drive bays, one for small SSD for loading times and the second 1 TB HDD. I don't know if she would pay extra for that though.

you could always swap out the hdd for an ssd.and use the 1tb as a external drive.

Buy literally any $400-500 laptop from a reputable brand and it will suit her needs.
