Hi,

Does anyone have a good suggestion for a laptop for mom? I am having trouble finding a sub $300 laptop (they're all netbooks)

I need:
At least 13-14" or higher screen size, easier on their eyes.
Built in webcam for skype and stuff
Wifi a plus
Doesn't have to be very fast, just need a basic laptop for browsing.

If you can deal with used laptops, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/catego...|lp:200:hp:499.99|c:2509|&Sort=4

Outside of Refurbished and used, you won't find a new laptop for under $300. Netbooks would fit under $300, but they don't have any larger then a 12" screen and no dvd drive.
