- Macbook 2.0GHz - Intel Core 2 Duo - 1GB RAM - 10.6 SL & Powermac G4 - 1.8GHz Sonnet Dual Processor
She needs a Mac for uni for Sound Engineering TO RUN LOGIC! And be able to run a game or two..
Lots of RAM
Lots of HDD Space
Fast processor, pref. Intel
Lots of USB & Firewire ports (Inc. Firewire 800)
Capable of upgrading to the next operating system after Snow Leopard.
Whether it's a tower and a screen seperate or an all-in-one she doesn't mind, just not a notebook.

Are we talking new or used?
If new...and if your friend can scrape together an extra £169...this would be one awesome choice:
Refurbished iMac 27-inch 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - Apple Store (U.K.)
If she absolutely positively cannot spend more than £1000...then this would be a good choice:
Refurbished iMac 21.5-inch 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - Apple Store (U.K.)
If we're talking a used computer. It really depends on what is available for sale at the time your friend is ready to spend the money.
