Closed Please recommend laptop/netbook for Mom Tags: Laptops Netbooks Product Last response: April 1, 2013 8:00 PM in Laptop Tech Support Share chedderslam1976 November 25, 2010 5:56:48 PM My father has tasked me with finding a decent laptop for my Mom to use. Doesn't necessarily need to be before Christmas, but if I can snag one during the upcoming sales that would be good. Main use will be writing, so MS Word most of the time, maybe some light browsing. Need to be $350 or less out the door(shipping if not local/Best Buy or tax). She says she would like a full size keyboard, but I think she would adjust to a slightly smaller one. So I am thinking 14 or 15 inch. Definitely want Windows 7. If we could possibly squeeze in a (small) ssd, that would be awesome. I might be willing to buy the ssd seperate, as a gift from me, if need be, but don't want to spend too much. Refurb is definitely ok. Does any one have any recommendations? I am a custom gaming desktop guy, so completely out of my realm of knowledge. Thanks!
