My mom needs a laptop... ugh

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My old Dell died during the Saturday storm, so my mom needs a PC she would rather have a laptop.

What is your maximum budget? The cheaper the better, it can even be used. I would say 200 might be pushing it, so used :/ it can even be from one of you, but it has to be able to play farmville.

What country are you in? USA

What will be the uses of this laptop? Farmville

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you? nah, just needs to be cheap and dependable. If under warranty I need a decent warranty company.

What screen size do you require? I think a netbook might be too small so 9"+?

What screen resolution do you require?

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay? Cheaper the better.

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet) Playing Farmville I say 1hr is fine, since it can stay on the charger otherwise. But the more life the better.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings? Farmville on my mom is a lamer settings.

What operating system do you need? (if any) I can take care of OS, plenty of friends with plenty of keys.

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.) Dont care.

How much hard drive space do you need?

Do you need any special hardware? (blu ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)

Is there anything else we need to know? She is a smoker, a heavy smoker, and we all know that reeks hell on stuff, so maybe one that the vents only blow outwards as to not suck in dust and stuff. Oh and mouse pad style mouse, not eraser-head kind.



TL: DR my mom plays farmville, needs a mega cheap laptop.

I would recommend keeping an eye on craigslist to see if you can pick something up while you wait for somebody on OCN to contact you.
