Hi

I'm looking for recommendations for a low-cost (ideally about $200) laptop that will be used almost exclusively for watching streaming video and web surfing. I'd prefer a windows system (although I'd be open to a chromebook), and a keyboard (rather than touch-screen). I don't care whether or not it can double as a tablet.
Thanks

which one?

I think it's a decent brand, I have a lenovo miix2 (tablet) and it works well, but have some bugs related to the virtual keyboard (never tried to fix it or find the cause)

the asus I mention have a bit more battery life, runs cooler, have more ram, but have a worst gaming performance than b50-30

this one seems to be better (but with a litlte less battery life, lenovo b50-45 http://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-B50-45-Notebook-Review-Update.126712.0.html

between the two you mention, B50-30 seems to have a bit beter graphic performance witch could help with videos, but have shotet battery life and run more hot.
