Hello community,

I am currently looking to buy a laptop for my mother that is under $500.

She will be mainly using this laptop for internet surfing and microsoft programs.

It would be like great if it has some cute design/color with size 14"

Any recommendations will be great!

with only $500 you're going to be scraping the bottom of the barrel. also 14" laptops tend to be more expensive than equivalent 15.6" laptops.

by upping your spending limit to $600 and/or considering laptops larger than 14" you'll find something better.
what all will your mom do with it?

I disagree that you'd be scraping the bottom of the barrel, since mom's not using it for gaming...

I just recommended this for my dad yesterday. Buy it on line and pick it up at your local Best Buy.

Dell Inspiron 15R for $329. Core i3-2350, 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, HD 3000 graphics. pretty nice laptop, I didn't realize how good until I did some research.

move fast though...
