Hello!

I need a laptop under $500 that can stream Netflix and YouTube at 1080p with no hiccups, but I do not intend to use it for gaming.

Thanks in advance!

This isn't from Amazon but this is Acer's Ebay account, so that's pretty reliable

This is from Amazon, but it appears to be a limited time discount, so you might wanna get this as soon as possible

EDIT: Some more laptops from Amazon

All the laptops have an AMD A Series Quad Core processor with some pretty good integrated graphics parts to them, so you can do some good multi tasking while streaming that 720p / 1080p (Some of those laptops are 1080p I think).

It's gonna be pretty hard to find a laptop for under $500 that can do those things but I might can find something. The thing is about 1080p playback, it requires a GPU with SOME meat on it, which most $500 laptops dont have. Also, most $500 laptops are 720p, but I might can get you something. I will post back when I find something.

But ebay isn't the most reliable place to get your tech but for your specifications, you're gonna have to spend a little more to get what you want.

Could you get me a 720p laptop under 500? An Amazon link would be preferred.
