  • 300 Laptop Advice

    Parents of my friend have asked me to find a laptop with a budget of 300 in mind, nothing fancy as only going to be used for school work and internet browsing. Any good recommendations for this price point?

          sorry didn't mean to come across sharply, arias range for the low end seems pretty poor unfortunately.

            Maybe go for a 5755G Acer.

                I picked up a new i5 sandy, with 630M, 500GB HDD, 4GB DDR3, for 350.
                I'll try and look for one, and send you a PM mate.

                    That X54 actually doesn't look too bad. If all you want to do is school work and internet use, why do you want/need an i3? The 5755G is a great laptop, but for 50 more than your budget, do you need the i5? :\

                    I'd have said get the X54, remove the HDD and get a 40 SSD, it'll be much better for your uses than the 5755G...

                      Can't find it anymore sadly (must have been some sort of deal :S?). Bought it near 3 months ago.

                        The i3 or i5 is not needed I know but for an extra couple of pound the i3 is definitely worth it, was only interested in the suggestion above as my my mate would love having a laptop that could play games for not much more too but unfortunately that's not available anymore, going to tell them to get the lenovo with i3 and 4gb ram for 320

                              I sold it not long after on the bay, with a 120GB SSD on it.
