Need laptop advice (not FSX related)

Recommended Posts

Guys, I need to buy my kid a new laptop for school (Grade 10). Main uses will be MS Word, Excel plus just the general online nonsense like Facebook, MS Messenger, Skype, etc. I want to buy a very cheap laptop with screen of 15" or more that will do the job and will not be too slow. I have seen some for $350 with AMD chips (Dual Core C-50, E-350) but honestly I don't know a thing about these chips and if they are any good or not. Do you guys have suggestions ? (and thanks because every dollar you save me here is one that I have for some FS addon !!!) thanks, Mark.

Anyone will do for those tasks. What slows down computers the most is poor manteinance and reckless use (filling up the HDD with tons of crap, fragmentation, viruses...).

Have a look at the Dell Inspirons. They're pretty well done, and warranty is really good.
