Budget laptop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a budget laptop for around $500-600. What do you recommend? Little to no games will be played. Mainly video watching, messing around with spreadsheets, and net surfing.

i would suggest something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834312518
$400
Core i3 2.4GHz
4GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM
500GB HDD
15.6" Screen
Intel HD 4000 Graphics

Capable of watching videos, surfing the web, and doing spreadsheets with ease. i would even go as far as to say it could do some light gaming as well.

Acer i know this is an open box laptop but its worth the shot i5 3rd gen GT 730 6gb ram
Asus this one is refurbished but its an i7 2nd gen and 8gb intel 3000HD
Asus Xotic Pc this one is i5 3210m 4gb ram 750GB HDD intel 4000HD
Check them both they are the best two laptops for the money right now (if you want new ones not refurbished or open boxed you can get an i5 with lower GPU model)
