I'm looking to purchase a basic laptop for 300 to 400 dollars. I currently use a laptop that is about 6 years old and it works fine for what I do (take online college classes, watch YouTube videos, download movies, and play an old computer game called Ultima Online). Unfortunately, it's on it's last leg so I need to buy a new one. I just need a nice basic laptop that can do the basic things that I would use it for. I'm on a very tight budget so if it's closer to 300 than 400 that'd be fine. I'm not opposed to a refurbished laptop as long as there is a decent return policy. Thanks in advance for any recommendations you can provide.

EDITED

This Acer is more powerful than the Lenovo I listed earlier, Its an A8-4500m which is superior to the A6-4455m found in the lenovo (the acer is also $20 cheaper)

If you can stretch your budget an extra $100 then this is a SUPER DEAL

It comes with an I5 Ivy Bridge processor and a GT 630m GPU (while not the greatest GPU) for $499 it's a pretty solid laptop and it should let you play modern games at low settings (like Battlefield, NFS, Far Cry) etc.
Just wanted to throw it out there if you're interested


Currently out of Stock - $399 with a touchscreen- However its 11.6" Not sure if you would like it that small

Thanks for the quick response. I like that Acer at Tiger Direct, that's probably what I'll go with.

Anyone else have any suggestions? I plan on ordering tomorrow and wouldn't mind a few more options to choose from.

Thanks!
