HI :), Im hoping someone could help take out the headache of purchasing a new laptop. I'm currently working on building a recipe website. I was thinking of getting a chromebook because I don't intend on watching movies or playing games on it. I woukd like to be able to watch Youtube though. I want something that is fast and fluid. My last laptop was slow and glitchy. Any advice on which specifications are best for my needs, brands, etc. would be much appreciated. Also I should mention I'm trying to keep around 200$

Something that is fast and fluid for $200.00 is going to be a little hard to find unless you find a good used laptop. I would suggest adding $150 then you may find something that is tolerable.

Considering your budget I think this is pretty good.  I would prefer All Intel stuff but that will be tough with that budget.  I like this one at the link cz097rj provided for that money.  Sure it MIGHT be a little slow but you can fix that if you are inclined.  doublesuperdragon was also spot on, and both these guys probably no more than I.  You can typically check out a pc like this at Wallmart etc.  The price should tell you something, take care of it, because it is not a super durable laptop.


Remember to read those consumer reviews, questions and answers.
