Laptop for under 300

#1razidPosted 6/17/2012 8:57:31 PM
My brothers moving to another city and he needs to apply for jobs, but he can't take his computer yet. So we want to get him a cheap laptop that will only be used for internet, microsoft office, and stuff like that.

I'm thinking the best bet would be a refurbished from newegg. Have any of you guys gotten refurbished laptops from newegg before? How are they?

Any other good options?

You're just not going to find anything good for under 300.

I don't necessarily need good, just something that will work, reliable, and has ok speed. Just basic programs like chrome and word. It's not gonna be used for gaming or anything

This seems like a pretty good option:

Probably not gonna get much anything better for under 300.

don't have a waifu. 2D is just too mainstream and 1D is not even visible.
