Best Cheap Laptop for Everyday TasksKey features
- Impressively quiet and cool
- Decent touchpad and keyboard
- 15.6-inch, 1,366 x 768 screen
If you have around £300-£350 to spend, the Asus X550CA-X0113H
is a great Windows 8 laptop on a budget. The 15.6-inch ultrabook features an Intel Celeron 1007U 1.4GHz processor, 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive and a DVD drive. For connectivity, there’s a VGA port, two USB slots, HDMI support and an Ethernet port.
It manages a not so great 3-4 hours battery life but more than holds its own in the performance department compared to other £500 laptop offerings. If money is tight and you simply want something to get everyday tasks done (browsing and word processing) it’s a good shout.Price
