hello, I'm a student. I need a good mini laptop that would be good for surfing the internet and making research as far as my academic work is concerned.
Please I need good suggestions. Thank you.

If you're on a limited budge a chrome book might be just what you're looking for.  Normally under $300 it is requires an Internet connection for everything as nothing is stored locally.

 

How much are you able to spend?

Among all the chromebooks. Which chromebook do you would be the best now. Could you just list the particular model we have?

I do not own any laptops myself, however if you're tight on cash a chrome book with a lightweight Linux distrobution would be perfect. Lubuntu or Xubuntu is what I would reccomend as they do not come with the Unity desktop environment by default, which is rather resource intensive, and they are basicly Ubuntu so you can easily get help with any issues you may encounter as it is the most widely used distro on desktop/labtop computers. And it's not difficult to use OpenOffice. at all, so it should suite your needs.

What is your price range?

For very little money you can buy an Acer or similar that will be a real computer with ample storage and also will accept more software than the Chrome.  I bought one for my grandson awhile back, if minutes of fooling with made take back the very same day more than disappointing compared to a Windows lap top.


If you don't stand for the flag then you will fall for anything!
