What is the best and cheapest laptop I can buy?

I'm going to college and I am wanting a laptop. I just don't have a lot of money to buy an apple laptop. I was looking at a hp laptop but I don't know if that's the best .

It will be for work purposes so you should find one with 4 or 8 GB of RAM, 250 GB to 1 TB of hard disk space, and have either Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8 installed. if you plan on having games on it too you will want to have a graphics card with 1024 MB Memory. oh, and get either Norton (paid) or Microsoft security essentials (free). both are great. I don't like Norton as much though. so you can try to search these specs at best buy. you also want a good battery life

Acers are the cheapest of the cheap, but they really aren't good laptops. They are better than a netbook, though. If not Acer, I would try to get a Toshiba. They are cheap sometimes, but can also be out of stock a lot of times.

Honestly, buy an HP! I have an HP and it hasn't given me trouble in the 2 years that I've had it. Never buy a Toshiba. My sister and the girl who does her hair have Toshibas and they both said they broke down easily. HP's are pretty cheap to my understanding and they're a good investment. I've heard that Acer's have poor memory and break down easily, too.

You can also consider refurbished laptops. They are actually cheaper than the normal ones.

Well, the Chromebook is around $250, but it's a notebook, so it's much smaller, and not as powerful.

Google chrome book at best buy should be really cheap compared to others.

Yes, it's cheap but it cannot replace a normal laptop/notebook. It cannot effectively manage files that aren't Internet-based.

If it's just for college I recommend a Chromebook but it can't play any games.

chrome book is cheap if you don't mind the low physical storage. If its for high end gaming look for something pricier.

Check ebay periodically. I just bought an Apple Core 2 DUO that came with OSX 10.6 Snow leopard for $410. (13 inch) It is upgradeable for $20 to mountain lion. I did just that so I have a perfectly working apple for $430. Just keep watch and be ready to pounce on it.

I think you can go with dell. It is best and you can get in a reasonable cost.
