Nothing special just trying to max out what I can get for 300 bux for my moms bday present. Nothing fancy. Windows 7 preferable but I realize its hard to not get stuck with windows 8 these days. Anyone know any deals? I've looked a bit haven't found any deals that clearly stand out to me as "oh its gotta be this one" or anything like that.

Why not get her a good tablet, like a Nexus 7 or something similar?

Does she actually need a laptop? If she's only browsing the Internet, watching movies, listening to music, reading books, etc. then a tablet would be a better choice than a crappy $300 laptop.
