    All I care about is the internet, Word, Excel, lightweight, USB ports and spending less than $300.

    I am currently using a MacBook Pro and don't like it.

    Is a Chromebook the way to go? :dontknow:

    You'll be able to find a laptop for under 3 bills, but not loaded with the software you're looking for.

    I ended up buying the boy a new one for Christmas. An HP laptop with all of the stuff you're looking for, for 350 from Wal Mart.

    For 299, you won't get a CD burner, or any Word, or Excel software.

    I am OK with using Google docs. That is what I use now because of the stupid Mac I have. I am inclined to go with a Chromebook, I just don't know anything about them.

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite at Walmart a few months ago for 499. Just use it for Internet. 8gb of Ram and 1tb hd.

    Chromebooks are limited in what they can do, it's basically just a big android phone. If you play poker forget about it, can't do it. There's no windows os, it's just a browser.

    Thats fine. I think I am settled on a Chromebook. Its just a matter of which brand/model at this point I think.
