In today’s age, you cannot get by in a working environment or student environment without the benefits of having a laptop, they are great – the are portable, they can store all of your work, they can be put away if you need the space unlike a desktop and they connect to the internet. The only issue with laptops is how much they can set you back, if you are just starting out in a new job, you are a student or you are an entrepreneur trying to make it on your own. Money can be a bit tight, well very tight depending on your situation.
This is why most laptop manufacturers are trying to get more competitive in the market and they are doing this by dropping the prices of laptops. It is not crazy to think of buying a laptop under 200 dollars anymore (five years ago it was unheard of, but today it can be common practice), this being said you are not going to get the best, fastest laptop out there, but you will be able to get a reliable one with a good operating system and even some extra features thrown into the mix.
It is possible to get a laptop with most of the bells and whistles that one is wanting on a budget these days – you are able to get one with a really good internal memory, good RAM and most of the time comes with a CD Drive or even a webcam – depending on the brand. You are able to get all of this for under two hundred dollars, make sure when you go to buy the laptop that you know the specs that you are looking for, but also consider some of the instore specials being offered to you, such as a bag being added or a mouse.
