    So, I know there are a number of different types of laptops to use from and I am pretty comfortable with the one I have now but I am curious to see other good options out there. What are some pretty low price laptops out there that are easy to carry around, have a lot of memory and have plenty of unique features?

    You have to choices for that. It is either to buy I used laptop, You can buy some high quality ones at Iretron or buy a brand new but older model of laptop. Older models are usually cheaper.

    Hmm, I never really heard of Iretron but I might just check it out. I can't help but feel like there is some kind of catch when buying an older model, like there might be too many bugs within the system but that could just be me over thinking it. I just been thinking of getting a backup laptop just in case.

    I too am looking for a cheap and best laptop. I want it for home use. Not for any hi-tech use. There are some very cheap laptops from Micromax etc. for around Rs.13000.00 which will be around $200.00 but I am not sure whether they are good ones and they will last?
    I have not heard of Iretron. Will check this out and see whether this suits my need.

    The best laptop this year was the Lenovo brand(2017 year)and it seems like the batteries go a long time(some up to 17 hours) without a charge. I think they used to be business favorite-but now they are going more mainstream today. Also the Asus computer has a pretty good price on it as well-but the tech support with this company is not to strong.

    Brand new laptops are expensive here that's why we are grabbing the promotional offer of HP. The Notebook 348 has a tag price of only 30k pesos which is roughly $600 which is a steal considering that notebook has good power and a screen of 14 inches. The software is already bundled in the price. We are just awaiting for the invoice and notice of delivery.

    What ever that's on sale, that you like and comfortable with is good, to me. I wait for sales at my favorite stores, then, I go to ebates.com where you get a free account and shop and get free money from ebates, if the store is at ebates.com to shop with. I like to do it this way so I save even more money when shopping. Right now is back to school sales going on a very good sale by the way so check stores for computer sales now at their back to school sales, lucky you!

    There are a lot of good options but it will always depend on your needs. If you'll be using it for office works then you have a wide range of choices at a cheap price, probably from $250-$400. However, if you'll be using it for gaming or video editing then you will need a computer with higher specs which costs a lot.

    I went the Chromebook route a couple of years ago and I love the thing. It is portable and cheap enough to not really care too much about being careful. I would recommend this as something to look into.

    Netboooks and Chromebooks are the cheapest from my finding. Though they are not much use other than Internet usage. But they can be good enough on the laptop front. You can see that netbooks with ChromeOS seems to be doing good in many ways. There are some really good options with laptops lately though. I'd say go with netbooks from HP or Surface tablets. That would be good for sure.

    Cheap and light will always be chromebooks or notebooks to use. It depends on what you prefer, Windows or Mac, because that's the real question. With Windows you have a lot more choice, but with Mac you will pay more, but can get a bargain with a refurbished model. I've seen a few on Groupon and other sites which makes it affordable.
