Best laptop for $400

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a friend that is looking for a good computer but I think she can get better for 400.

Here is what she is looking at.

I thought I would check here first then look around myself. She doesnt "plan" on gaming but she does have kids and a gamer husband. She basically wants to do documents for her business.

Thanks for the help ^_^

I will give you some better options.

Asus - 15.6" Laptop - Intel® Core™ i5-2450M processor - 4GB Memory - 500GB Hard Drive - IMR Matte Dark Brown Suit

Technically speaking this computer is really good if she can pay an extra $50. It carries an i5 so I think its worth it. Price is $449.99

If she can't spend an extra $50 then.

Asus - K Series 15.6" Laptop - 4GB Memory - AMD A8-4500M processor with UMA graphics - 500GB Hard Drive - Matte Light Indigo

This computer would be pretty good too especially if her husband or son decide to game on it. It is $399.99

Or just for her own needs then this last one is good.

Asus - 15.6" Laptop - 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ i3-2370M processor - Memory - 500GB Hard Drive - Black

Intel I3 2370m, $379.99. Way better than the E-1200 you link and better than the AMD A6.
