Best BF Laptop under $300???

Postby tattsb4u » Thu Nov 14, 2013 8:10 am

Curious.....my 15 year old just dropped her custom painted laptop :evil: and I need to replace the hard drive & have everything reinstalled....not very happy so I am considering just buying a new one. I have seen quite a few under $300 and would like some opinions....

Can anyone give me any advice on the lower end laptops this year? She doesn't download very much music, or videos and she does not play video games. Its mainly for internet and the occasional homework assignment or report.

Thanks!!!

Here's a good deal on a laptop you can get right now (Toshiba Satellite, Windows 8, 15.6", HDMI out, number keypad and a 6 cell battery):
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp ... 9060689174

Only $229.99 and free shipping! I ordered one and it arrived in 2-3 days.

4.1 out of 5 stars on the Best Buy reviews and comments/reviews on anandtech and fatwallet are good. Apparently this is a case of getting a bit more than you pay for.

The paint itself was a bit pricey because it's "automotive paint"....I told him he should start a business! Laptops for teens are great...but she had like the "best one" even though it wasn't a top of the line laptop because of the paint job. Not sure if I should invest in fixing it, or just pick up a cheap bf one. If I end up scrapping it I am ripping the top off and hanging it on her bedroom wall! LOL!....worse part is she wasn't the one who dropped it...one of her friends did. :?

you can buy skins and stuff.. but i dunno.... the whole process of trying to put them on... and the wear and tear. i use them a lot for my phones but i dont' think i'd want to deal with one for a laptop.

I have no idea how easy or hard it is, figured it can't be too hard, a lot of people do it

The bigger it is the easier it is to put on in my opinion. The laptop was much easier than the phone or the DS covers.
