Let's talk budget computers

I know this does not get brought up often where people want the absolutely lowest cost with their computing. However I really did score a deal on BBY's early BFsale with a 14" Lenovo Laptop. But I feel that today's budget computers don't perform too well compared to that of when the Netbook craze came about and those were awesome machines even the onesthat rocked Windows XP.

Re: Let's talk budget computers

I totally feel ya, hockeycanuckjc! 

 

I spent a while searching for a super low budget computer a while back. I'm pretty picky, but it felt like a lot of the computers struggled to hit a performance I personally was happy with. If I was spending a little more, there was some clear winners such as this Lenovo. With some of the deals we have, it's absolutely wild the power you can get spending $400! 

 

I ended up catching an Open-Box deal by shopping my local Best Buy store on a Chromebook actually. I was able to get everything I wanted for about $275 thanks to an amazing Chromebook Open-Box deal. I wasn't able to find the exact one I bought on BestBuy.com (I believe it was discounted) but this appears to be a similar computer. 

 

What Lenovo did you end purchasing?
