Laptop advice.

MoshJosh

My wife mentioned wanting a laptop for school. . . I know very little about them, so I’m coming to you guys for advice. She will mainly be using it to type up papers and do research, nothing to crazy. Budget is gonna be less than $500, but $300 would be better haha, would consider buying used. . . What do y’all suggest?

I personally own an asus and I've only ever had good luck with them. Depending on what type of research and what she does an iPad could even be better but that based on preference. Might be able to find something used for pretty cheap right now.
Hope this helps,
Emily

If its just online stuff, a low cost Chromebook wouldn't be a bad idea...

I was gonna say Chromebook too. My friends son has one and is doing College work and loves it. I think any entry level laptop would do those things you mentioned.

I advised my now wife to get a Chromebook for her college classes. If you are having to submit a lot of documents it can be a pain in the hindquarters. She has to upload her document to her google drive (done automatically) then open it on my Windows PC to do the editing otherwise the editing gets screwy then fix the editing issues before she can submit it. Honestly, I'd get a low-end Windows PC if that is all you guys will be doing on it! Less than 500 is a pretty easy price point to hit with a low end. You could find a used on the internet as well, but make sure you run a complete reformat on it prior to ensure any residual data has been wiped. Also, make sure you have a program to find malware people are getting pretty malicious on the internet! If you have anything you are considering feel free to let me know, I am going back to school for IT stuff I can even help you find an anti-malware that fits your budget to keep you safe a well.

Best of luck - Cheers!
