There are many options when looking for an inexpensive laptop to stoke your hatred of Windows by limiting its hardware resources. Finding a laptop like this is easy here are a few things to keep an eye out for:
- Less than 64GB of hard drive space
- 4GB or less of RAM
- Intel or AMD chip made before 2012
- At least 1.5″ thick
- Standard Definition display
- At least 8 pounds
- CD/DVD Drive
Finding a laptop which meets all of these criteria will surely be difficult. The device will surely be less than $300 which is about $300 too much for any device of this caliber. Physical office supply stores and online retailers all have these devices for sale and usually promoted as a great deal.
Windows will have a hell of a time getting anything done on a laptop with less than 64GB hard drive. When you throw in the 4GBs of RAM and a 5+ year old processor good luck opening the Start Menu. Millions of deal seekers all around the world see a $300 Windows laptop and think they are lucky, however this has never been the case.
The urge to save money can frequently be to intense to over come. This means buyers must give in to this garbage excuse for a Windows machine then in three years spend ten times the amount of money on a Macintosh laptop and claim it is at least a two times better computer. So it goes.
