So, some of you might remember me. Mainly in a not so good way. I hope you would toss that up :) 

I'm here today to ask for a cheap notebook for my father... I want it around $300, 15" LCD would do, It would be mainly for browsing and office jobs (for the work)
Dell, Sony and Toshiba would do.

Thank you very much!

Honestly, if price is set, all you got to do is go online and see the best hardware you can get. One tip is to search for a notebook with 4GB memory and a hard disk with 7200 RPM speed if possible.

Stay away from Sony. The prices are way too high for the support.

Dell is a great option.

Toshiba are expensive sometimes and build is not solid.

I tried but I didn't find anything good.
I'm leaving this to you all, and coming back tomorrow.
My connection is pretty unstable, I won't be able to come back today.
Toshiba is a very good brand, and it's the only brand which has warranty in Egypt (international warranty)

And by the way, I don't think $300 would get 4GB RAM and a 7200RPM HD as well.

Thanks anyway.

Then go with Toshiba. $300 would definitely get you 4GB memory. I am not sure about the hard disk speed.
