When looking for a new computer its important to find that that matches your needs. In this case the computer would be mainly used for web browsing, email and watching DVD’s. There are some really good bargains going around at the major retailers for low end laptops. The great thing about getting a cheap laptop is there isn’t a significant financial loss when the children drop it or drop something on it. There is some downsides to these laptops though, their processors will be very low end, they will not be able to play 3d games, and they wont have a great battery life. Not all low end laptops are created equally so the buyer must still beware.
