My wife has a similar CPU and such laptop. Sure I see a HP there but it's HP and well, not for me.
Hi all! I have a Dell Latitude D531 that is about to die out on me, it's got an overheating problem and some usb ports are loose and not working and half of my keyboard keys are dead. LOL
So I'm looking for a laptop on a limited budget, I want to spend approx. $200, $30 under or over is fine. I like to play games and watch movies. I know $200 won't get me far but surely I can find something at least a smidge better for what I do for that price right? I mean my D531 came out forever ago lol. Anyway I hope I get a response I'll be watching closely I'm excited about getting a new laptop
You can get a second hand laptop within this bracket but if you want to have a new one, you need to increase your range to make some hardcore uses of it like playing games and watching movies.
Either, you can go for chromebooks. However, chromebook do have certain limitations which usually laptops dont have.
Chromebook are usually good for users who loves to use google chrome as their default web browser and already do lots of work on cloud.
I wrote an article about choosing the best laptop in your price range, click to see. That could help with what laptop and performance specifics you are looking for.
However, your budget is kinda tight to buy a new one which is suitable for gaming too.
Have you looked on eBay? Here's a search for laptops under £200 (that's only a bit more than $200).
Saved eBay Search, click to see.
They might have some more refurbished or second-hand laptops on offer.
Check them out.
This article from Lifehacker might help you determine what kind of laptop you need: How to pick a laptop
If you want hardware specifics on laptops then Tomshardware is the place to go.
There is even a guide here on Cnet that helps you buy the right laptop: Laptop buying guide
Hope this helps, though my personal advice is to go over what you plan to do with the laptop and how fast you want it to go. Determine if it's for gaming purposes or average use. This will make a difference in the laptops you'll be looking at.
Anyway, happy hunting!
P.S: To moderators, I'm posting these links to help OP. They have no correlation with me or my business. Thank you!
