Could i play fortnite on any of these?
Well I have that same Samsung Chromebook he mentions and it's really just meant for browsing the net and only to a certain extent. You're better off saving a $100 more to that 200 and get a new laptop for more features. You also have to keep in mind that buying an old laptop means it'll probably run up to windows 7. in a moment they won't support windows 7 .. .. anymore like XP and Vista.

I briefly considered grabbing a used laptop to keep in my bag, eyed an i5 Dell Precision M4700... until I realized it was 6 lbs./2.72 kg...

Hey Austin, 2 weeks ago my laptop stopped working. The GPU (7760m) burned out (yeah, I know :-/) and I had only $200 left. After lot of looking I found that none of the laptops in present market can serve my purposes (like 20+ tabs in chrome :P Visual Studio and CSGO in 80-100 fps). So, I chose a used HP Pavilion P204TX with extra 4 Gigs ram. It was my friend's and 3 years old. When I opened the chassis I was shocked seeing the cooling paste was still not hardened like it should have been. My friend doesn't know how to do these stuffs and I'm pretty sure I'm the 1st one to open. Also, believing my friend was telling truth, it is not been used more than an hour per week so you know :P So far, I'm happy about my decision. For me, the risk was worth a shot.

This is in euros so IDK about the US, but Lenovo ThinkPad x230 I got for €140 and upgraded to 8gb ram and 120gb ssd from another dead laptop. Lightweight, lots of ports, small form factor. Installed Lubuntu. Not for real gaming, but I can still play online games like Curve Fever whilst running a screen recording software in the background. Treated myself to a kebab with all the money I saved. ^_^

I managed to score a brand new Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 460 on eBay sometime last year for only about £350. I love it as it works really well as a school laptop and can even handle some light gaming (though the focus is definitely on productivity). It is lightweight, very powerful, has a touchscreen and stylus for those who are into that. It has the classic thinkpad nipple ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) and a fingerprint reader, which saves me so much time. The battery life is good, even with a fairly bright 1080p screen.

There are lighter smaller laptops you can get used for 200$, something like the thinkpad x230.

So I have a Chromebook and it is perfect for school. I can do anything I need for school. I have my gaming PC in my room and the Chromebook for taking places.
He say old, he say big , i say best Laptop ever made . If they ever build same HP Elite Book but newer specs , i will be first in line . First i can open it and clean it in minutes (no screws no hasel ) . Put SSD in it and some RAM , and you have best student laptop ever .

Refurbished thinkpads!
The HP Elitebooks meet my needs. Docking, expansion, and a business/professional end laptop. It’s what I have always had as a laptop. And I do need an optical drive and the track point. That’s my my preferred pointing device, and please. My current laptop is 6 pounds m. I can handle the weight

It's 2018 and I still use a ThinkPad T420. Works great, has 8gb of ram, good battery life (and you can swap batteries), does anything you'd expect it to only negative is the weight

Dont buy the hp stream. Its limited to 32gb flash storage- not enough to update windows even if all bloatware had been deleted.

Updates in the background while you're trying to do something is so windows 10-ish. Like who does that these days. Hey, I see you're trying to do something, would you like to reboot now.

Never a bad idea to pick up an old EliteBook or ThinkPad. Pretty cheap to begin with, and usually fairly easy to upgrade. Not exactly some gaming beast even after upgrades, but still damn good.
I have that chromebook, and my school has both laptops,lol, yer

Obviously : used laptops. Since the transition of 4th gen to 5th gen Intel cpus , low end laptops are pieces of shit , I have a low end laptop that is so much upgradeable that I can swap the Celeron cpu to an i7 cpu (equivalent to an i5 6300 HQ), I can put up to 32 GB of ram (infinite Google Chrome tabs xD), I can put a Bluetooth adapter , a external graphics card via the wifi module , remove the dvd writer for another hard drive , upgrade Even the screen and the keyboard (thanks to the simplicity of older laptops , I only have to find a screen with enough pines for a better looking 1080p panel). In conclusion , you can have almost a gaming laptop for a third part of the price .

Bought a refurbed hisense chromebook with 2 gigs of RAM for $89 bucks, it's easily the best purchase I've made it weighs nothing and even though it has the 2 gigs of ram 4-5 tabs is easily handled.

Toshiba Z30 for a used laptop. 2.5 lbs, upgradable, has an SSD and they usually have around 8-hour battery life. You can get 4th gen i5 models for around $200 on eBay.

Warden (9 days ago)
Bought the EliteBook 8470p because of Austin Evans. It came with a 320GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM - which I upgraded to 8GB. This laptop is worth the money, I paid 180 USD on ebay for it and besides the battery, everything is perfect. The keyboard is just wonderful to type on and the machine is plenty powerful, even when not comparing it to Intel Atom garbage. If you want to use this for school or for everyday use, this is a great laptop. Just make sure to buy a new OEM battery and you will be set.
