Not a budget buster and cheap in the refurb market. Example at http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?InvtId=AO751H-1948-R
I have the 8.9 inch Netbook and get good use from it. But at today's price of 259 and free shipping, not too much too hard on the budget. Since the PS3 takes on the gaming task we can avoid the expensive laptops.
Hello and thank you for this forum. I truly need your assistance.
My wife and I, recently and unexpectedly, became the guardian of a brother and sister, ages 15 and 16. Making a long story very short - I was a Big Brother to this boy for the past 6 years. In May, I was asked to take him full time, three weeks ago, I was asked to take his sister. Instant Family!
Our foster son wants a laptop for school - he is in high school. I have NO clue as to what to buy him. I want to buy him something that wont break my bank and yet not disappoint him when he unwraps the laptop at christmas.
I have read the forums and tried to answer the questions as to what is our budget, what size we would prefer, size, components, ram, .......I have no clue.
We will be buying in the US, have no budget but we will find a way to make this happen. Hopefully we can find a solid laptop in the 500 - 700 dollar range. I don't mind a refurbished laptop. He will be using this for facebook, itunes, Youtube, school papers etc... He has a PS3 and plays "Call of Duty" with his friends on line. He is a typical 16 year old.
Any recommendations as to what to buy and where to buy would be much appreciated.
Thanking you in advance!
