Hey guys... I got a big favor from my brother. He needs a computer that doesn't go over 250 ish.. less money, the better... He's going to buy the computer and take it to college... so... please... if you have the time, help... i've been looking up computers too.. Also, if you guys can find good deals, that'll be awsome... don't you guys think that computers are getting so much cheaper? So mabey it'll be easier to find a good one... thank you for your time and I'll be greatly thankful for your help!
Computer that cost about 199-200? or lower?(8 posts)
A new computer under £250 is still not going to be very good, even thought prices HAVE lowered
what is this computer going to be used for?
if I were you follow Geeks advice and use ebay or similar
word of warning
is it is vista
you NEED 1gb + RAM, 2gb is better
Used is your only option. And as I know you Chris, you want XP anyhow. So an older PC (I assume you want a laptop for your brother) is your best bet. But buy from someone you trust because those deals usually come without any warrenty. $450 is the absolute minimum in new laptops ($400 for desktops with a small monitor). And for that you don't get much plus it's all Vista. There is one option though. That is the Asus Eee for $300 (if you can get one). That runs with Linux and is very, very small (I think a 7 to 8 inch screen, small memory and small SSD - Solid State Disk). But it weighs only 2 pounds.
