Looking for a decent laptop, $400 budget

it's for a buddy. He's not looking to game on it. Just use it for music and media and a workstation with the occasional emulator. Any suggestions???

What kind of emulators? Current ones such as PS2, Gamecube and Wii can forget it. PS1 and lower will be fine though.

You should be able to grab something with an A8 or an i3 for around $400.

You can always change the Hard drive in laptops. Or you could always get an external one. But let me look. That is probably the best CPU you will find for that price though. If I do find one with a bigger drive it would be of a lesser CPU most likely.

yeah I forgot about additional HDD's, but Like I said it's not for me, but for a buddy. I'll run this by him. I seen some others on there as well that he may be interested in.

I found this one. The HDD is bigger but I think the CPU is of lesser quality just slightly though.
