Please recommend laptop/netbook for Mom
Nov 25, 2010, 5:56 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.
