I'll keep both of these in mind, thanks guys.

There's a pretty good variety of low priced lappies out there. I love my Asus, even though it's a higher end laptop I've heard their quality is good across the board.


Is anyone still playing minecraft? I've got a load of free time right now, and I'd love to plink around on a shared server again.

If I was in a different area/bigger city I'd look into that, but I don't want a computer from the paper in this town.

So, I need some quick advice from the group here. My mom is looking for a cheap computer that we can set up for my little sister, and I know little to nothing about what brands to look for/avoid. I'll probably go to Walmart if possible, but BestBuy or the Internet are an option too.

Basically, all my sister needs to be able to do on it is play Minecraft, watch YouTube videos, flash games, etc. obviously, Microsoft office/works would be needed too.

Beyond that, we just want the cheapest possible one without buying a knockoff that is liable to melt down in a week.

Any suggestions? Thaks in advance forthe advice, btw
