Best laptop to get $300 or under?
Oct 27, 2012, 1:41 AM
I'm thinking about getting a laptop for college this Christmas and was wondering what the "best bang for buck" laptop I could get for $300 or under?
Some things to keep in mind,
I am an IT major
I have some programming classes that involve Java, C++, C#, etc.
Using to take notes
No video editing
SSD compatible? Yes
Future proof? If possible
I am willing to go over $300, but it all depends how close the price is to $300.

This one goes a little over your budget but it seems like a nice pic. It has a nice sized hdd and a good amount of ram

I wouldn't normally recommend an HP, but for that price I think this might be the best bang for the buck:

Best sub $700, sub 15" laptop
Laptop for grandma
Where can I get this laptop?
