Anything at walmart. If it's just word processing, browser stuff, and some flash content, anything will do as long as it's comfortable and light-enough. (You're not gonna get anything both fast and really light at that budget though)

I hate to be the guy to ignore the budget but this is the closest I could find that might be decently usable at that price. Besides maybe a chromebook.

My friend does use low end games and apps such as RPG maker, so it kinda needs to have some performance

If there are NONE under 300, could topping yhe budgdet to 350 work?

What the 3rd poster had linked was pretty decent. Could always go a bit more, but it does the job.
