Laptop or Tablet recommendations

Hello forum,

I'm looking for a laptop or tablet that supports Microsoft Office and is $300 or less. Other than the ability to take notes and work in office, it would also be very nice if it was mobile as well.

  1. You won't find much for that price. This 11.6" Acer Model will run it, but won't be particularly fast because it only has a Celeron CPU and 2GB of RAM (easily upgradeable to 4 or 8GB): http://goo.gl/ECLs4

    If you were able to go up to $350 and can compromise on size a little, this 15.6" Asus http://goo.gl/KkU1Z will be faster.

    If it really must be $300 or less, maybe you should look into refurbished models. This 14.1" Dell would probably be your best bet: http://goo.gl/EBERx

    Hope this is helpful.
  2. You won't find ANY tablet that can do that at that price. You might consider a chrome book with google docs.

    If you must use MS Office, then your best bet is a netbook considering your $300 limit.

    The following 10.1" Acer netbook is the only new netbook selling for under $300 t Newegg. Naturally, there are more places than Newegg to buy a netbook, but they have an excellent filtering system that is sorely lacking at many major e-tailers. Try searching Amazon, they might have a larger selection.

  4. The only tablets that can run MS Office are the tablets capable of running Windows RT such as the Microsoft Surface. However, these tablets start at $500.

    The only tablets selling for less than $300 are 7" Android tablets. MS Office does not exist for the Android OS.
