    Looking for a school laptop

    Hey guys, so I'm going to buy a laptop that costs 500$ for use at school. I'll use it for word processing, research, and probably youtube/webgames.

    All I want it to be is as thin as possible, as light as possible and have as close to a normal sized keyboard as possible. I'm really not looking for performance here, only a laptop that can be easily moved around inside a standard school bag.

    tl;dr want thin and light laptop for school, performance matters little, must be around 500$ price-wise

    Will or thanks any suggestions, depending on their decency.

    I have a netbook (this one). The processor isn't that good, that's why it's lagging on some youtube videos. However, for some more money you can find a well working netbook . A netbook is definitly worth it if you are not looking for performance. The keyboard isn't that big, but to be honest I had the same thoughts as you have, but it's O.K. to write on it.
    360€ (~500$) is enough for a high quality netbook in my opinion.

    We have netbooks at school, and I fucking hate them with passion. Thanks for the suggestion though <3 .

    I have a HP G56. It's quite good for the price. I reckon it's around $500 (I deal with GBP and it was £300).

    It's great for just about everything really. You can play games (though with some difficulty on a trackpad) and much more with ease. (:
