Best cheap laptop computer

As laptop computer becomes so popular in every occupation, people are always searching for the best cheap laptop computer to buy. Actually, getting best quality laptop computer with cheap price can be very challenging since we always pay more for best product.

However, if you know well about the hardware specs you want and the type of work you are going to do, then it will be easier to get best cheap laptop computer. You may get laptops starting from 100$, but make sure that it fits with your work type. For example, if you are into gaming, you need a laptop with powerful processor and video adapter. If you only see the price, then you will purchase a laptop that is short of processing capacity even to carry out ordinary works such as e-mail and internet browsing.

It is recommended that when you plan to buy a computer you need to know well about the BIG 4 computer parts Spec (processor, motherboard, video card, and memory). This is because any laptop computer performance extremely dependent on the specs of these parts.

Laptop types based on price

In the laptop computer market, you will find three types of laptop computers: brand new, used laptop and refurbished laptop.

Generally, the price of brand new computer is always higher when comparing to other types, but still depends on the spec. If you want the best cheap laptop computer among from newly manufactured laptops, you may go to one of the best and cheap online stores (such us, TigerDirect, Newegg, geeks, Dell, bestbuy) and start searching beginning from the least price then go upward until you reach the desired spec. Remember the BIG 4 parts.

Used laptop computers are also available at computer stores. These kinds of laptops were used by the owner for some time and put for resale without any maintenance and refurbishment. You do not get as many as used laptop online comparing to refurbished laptops. Nevertheless, you can still keep it in your search list.

Refurbished laptop is the other but the most common laptop type available online. What is refurbished means? Here is a the best definition I find from,

“In computer technology, refurbished refers to "old" or used computer equipment that has been restored to like-new working condition and/or appearance or computer devices that have been sent back to the factory to fix a flaw. The term typically refers to the hardware components of a computer that have been either replaced with similar components or updated with newer technology than the device originally came with. Companies that lease computers will often refurbish the computers after they are turned in and resell the refurbished units, commonly referred to as refurbs, at prices lower than those of new computers and/or donate the refurbs to schools or charities.”

Refurbished laptops are not new, that is why they are labeled as “Refurbished” and packed for sale. If you have financial constraint, why not try refurbished laptops, there are varieties of choices available in this group as well.

Here are some of the best cheap laptop computers that may interest you. (November 2011). You will also get used laptops at eBay with the price much lower than the following.
