Cheapest Laptop

 

If you're not a very active computer user who is looking for the cheapest laptop, why should you spend 1000's of unnecessary dollars? The cheapest Laptop is ideal for Internet and Emails If you're just in the market for a laptop to browse the Internet and/or send emails you should definitely look for the cheapest laptop. Sure, you can spend lots of money for a new name brand laptop but if you're just looking to use the laptop for simple tasks why spend the money on all the fancy latest features that you won't use? Instead get a much cheaper 'outdated' name brand laptop loaded with features that will serve you some purpose. The money you save on a cheap laptop you could spend on faster internet connection, like DSL or Cable.

Cheapest laptop example

Of course if you're looking for the cheapest laptop it will not have all the fancy options an expensive one would have but for basic needs it will have all the right parameters. I was just searching on TigerDirect.com for the cheapest laptop I could find and I found an IBM ThinkPad for $649.99 This IBM laptop has the following features:

Intel® Pentium® III 700MHz Processor

128MB SDRAM Memory

12GB Hard Drive

14.1-inch TFT Active Matrix XGA Display

Removable DVD-ROM Drive

S3 Savage Video

Crystal SoundFusion WDM Audio

Integrated 56k Modem

Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Professional

It's an amazing deal for the cheapest laptop on this site. With all these features, the laptop will fulfill all your basic needs.

Personally, I followed my own advice and my needs have been fulfilled to the fullest. Four years ago, I searched for about 2 days for the cheapest laptop I could find and bought one for about $750. The laptop was not a name brand and only had about 330Hz and 32 MB of memory, but I have been really happy with it. I take it everywhere with me and I don't really have to worry about losing it or damaging it in any way because it cost me so little. I use this laptop for emailing, typing and even just to listen to music. At first when I purchased the computer I was a little hesitant because I did not believe any thing so cheap would totally fulfill my needs, but after four long years the cheapest laptop I could find is still serving its purpose.

Where to get the cheapest laptop


When it comes to buying the cheapest laptop you will have some options. Your best bet for buying the cheapest laptop would be to go to the online discounters, like Tigerdirect.com. Online discounters sell all types of cheap laptops and these fall into some categories: Refurbished laptops- These are laptops which had problems in the past and where returned or were slightly scratched or damaged before even sold. After fixing the problems the companies sell these laptops to online discounters or other used computer dealers. These laptops are in great shape and these deals should be taken advantage of! Outdated laptops- If you're looking for the most basic laptop, buying one from even a couple years back will save you lots of money and get the job done!

*All these laptops come with warranties and if you are not satisfied there are always extended warranty programs.
