Any suggestions for a laptop or tablet for $250 or less? Low budget...I know, but it's for my 17 yr old and she will be using it for online school, internet, fb, watching movies, music. etc. I'm technically challenged and really need some advice...hope to have it under the Christmas tree this year. Thank you all in advance!

Hi Zebzeb,

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday is over, a lot of the biggest deals have passed. Groupon has a laptop on sale right now for $249.99. I also provided a viable option from Amazon that match your price range. The one that I provided has the best battery life and screen size of all of Amazon's selection.

If you would like to do your own research the following points are important:

Wireless: 801.11 b/g/n -- Do not worry about ac
CPU: Dual or Quad core processors
Hard Drive: 500 gigabytes minimum
Operating System: Windows 7 or Windows 8.1

All of the other options will be irrelevant for what you are looking for.

Amazon:

Good luck with your search! Also, refurbished is a great way to save money. Nearly everything I own is refurbished. :)
