Best Cheap Laptop For Internet Use

Published by OnlyBestLaptops, on Apr 01 2010, in the categories: Best selling devices, Economical class

Many years ago it was thought that the laptops won’t have success on great masses and they will be just some fancy devices that will be popular for a short period of time. But this wasn’t true, and the laptops have continually grown in popularity. Today a lot of people even prefer spending their money on a new laptop, rather than buying a new desktop computer. A laptop offers many advantages, and the biggest of them would be the portability. A notebook computer is much smaller, thinner and lighter than a PC, meaning that you can take it with you anywhere you go. And it even has an included battery, meaning that it can work without a power source for a few hours. So this means that you can use it practically anywhere…you can take it with you while traveling with the train and watch a movie, or you browse the internet while being in a coffee shop, or a lecture hall, or listen to some music while staying at a picnic and so on. There are so many things that you can do with a laptop, and it all depends on your personal preferences.

If you are not looking to do some fancy and advanced activities on your laptop (such as playing video games or watching movies in High Definition), and you want one for simple activities such as browsing the internet, then you won’t even need to buy a very powerful laptop. And it doesn’t need to be big either…so this means that the best cheap laptop for internet use would be a netbook.


A netbook is a device that is even smaller than a regular laptop. Since it is smaller it couldn’t have all the exact components, so usually it has a smaller keyboard (all the keys except the numeric ones) and it doesn’t have an optical drive. So in case you need to use a CD or a DVD, you will need an external optical drive. A netbook usually has the size of the screen between 7 and 10 inches in diagonal and the weight between 2-3 pounds. It doesn’t have as many features and as powerful technical details as a regular laptop, but it is not weak either. It is just great for simple activities such as: browsing on the internet, writing mails or documents.

There are many models of netbooks on the market, and today we’ll discuss about one of them. For today we’ll choose the Lenovo IdeaPad S 10 which you can find as a refurbished laptop for 269 dollars on the site It offers quite good technical details that will allow you to easily and rapidly do the tasks we mentioned before, and even many more others. It has a display screen of 10.1 inch and it also features webcam and a microphone.
