We’ve explored a lot of different areas of the budget laptop market on this site so far (including a merry jingle from Sandta!) but there’s no point going over the fundamentals unless we get into some serious details as to which cheap laptops are going to really be worth your money. Everyone is different, and everyone will have different needs, but this doesn’t stop us from picking out a few favorites that it’s seriously hard to go wrong with. Most of these were taken off of LaptopNinja’s cheap laptop review guides.
The ASUS X202E-DB21T is an excellent example of touchscreen technology at a dirt cheap price. For many people Windows 8 was a complete failure, but what most don’t seem to serious it that this was mainly due to a lack of touchscreen capabilities for more initial Windows 8 laptops. This bad boy packs some half decent specs and makes for a perfect travel companion and netbook to use for work or entertainment on the fly.
The C55D-A5240NR is on another end to the scale of the laptop above – it has a large display more suited to heavier entertainment usage as well as dual core processor, a 500GB harddrive, and a Radeon HD 7310 perfect for entry level gaming. While this PC won’t blow you away performance wise, for the price it packs some decent power and unless you are a serious power user it should fulfill most day to day tasks more than fine, with a sneaky game or two thrown in to boot.
The 15 i15RV-6190BLK is a bestselling laptop from Dell that has received great reviews for it’s overall design factor and performance. Dell tend to dominate on the design front and for putting together laptops that look and feel great to use. Though it doesn’t quite have the specs of the Toshiba above, this Dell more than makes up for it just in terms of raw design flare and quality of finish.
These are just a few of the great laptops on offer for under $400 one can find if you do a little digging – last but not least be sure to put in the time and effort to make sure that the laptop you choose is right for you, as there’s nothing worse than a disappointing purchase!
