Anyone know of any not-s*** laptops at or under $400?

At Best Buy theres a 399 dollar Toshiba Bundle. Its an i3 with 6GB ram. Or an HP Touchsmart for 449 dollars, its an A8 AMD CPU.

Well, I managed to push my budget up to $500!

I decided I definitely wanted a touchscreen, so I'm looking at these two:


I know the Acer has better specs, but it also has worse battery life and is a bit bigger. Also, most places seem to put Acer near the bottom as far as brand quality goes. So I leaning towards getting the HP and just adding some RAM down the line if I need to, since it already is significantly better than what I was looking at, and I'd prefer longer battery+smaller PC.

Any opinions?

I would go with the Acer personally. HPs are solidly built but I've never had one that wouldn't burn you if you tried to do more than browse the Internet on it.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
