I'm looking for a cheap laptop for my sister. She'd only need it for light applications: web browsing, text editing and watching videos.

However, this being 2013 and all I can't think of not booting from an SSD (especially considering laptop hard drives are generally 5400 rpm...) and an msata SSD would be ideal, as replacing the hdd with an ssd is not an option.

But I looked a little bit and I can't seem to find a laptop in the 400-500 bucks price range with an msata slot free... Does anyone have a cheap laptop with an msata slot free? tongue.gif

Otherwise I'd have to skip the ssd, with great regrets frown.gif

Buget is $600 (CAD) max, including a 128 gb ssd, so about $500 for the laptop.
A 14-15.6 in laptop would be preferred.

Thanks
