I don't know if this is a good place to ask, but my wife's work is looking for a laptop for about $100 that can run Excel, Word, and do email. If anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be awesome.

I know it's not gaming related, but I know this board is usually very knowledgeable when it comes to PCs.

Non-existent. Nothing is free in this world unfortunately. If you want a laptop that can do all of those things you're going to up your budget. The Asus T100 can do all of those things but it's $400. That's about the cheapest you're going to go.

Yeah, the only laptop you're going to get for $100 is going to be ancient and incapable of running those apps, you're going to need to up your budget to AT LEAST $300 or so, and even then, performance isn't going to be stellar.

Thanks for the responses. It's not for me, it's the company my wife works for being cheap I guess lol. I think it's just for the head house keeper or something.

Thanks again.

Does it have to run Word and Excel specifically, or just documents and spreadsheets?

A Chromebook might be a decent option if generic documents and spreadsheets, but it would be running Google Docs instead of MS Office.

You can get some older used laptops for $100 but the minimum cost for a new Windows laptop is generally $250-$300. I have seen some get close to $200 on sale/refurbished but definitely nothing under $200.

It needs to run those specifically, but can be old as hell. Apparently, one she got runs XP. So, nothing spectacular.
