I am currently looking for a cheap windows laptop for browsing the internet, reading emails and some "basic" task, NOTHING FANCY.

This laptop is not for myself, but actually for a person over 50 years old, who hasn't used the computer soo much in her life.

I think that I'll go for some "basic hardware" computer, the only things that matters are those 2:

  • The bigger the displayis, the best it will be(as he as got some vision problem)

  • CHEAP, For cheap I mean under 500 Euros (something like 300/350 euros it could be great, but I also don't want to buy him a really bad pc as it will be his birthday present)

I prefer to install windows for myself , but also a computer with windows already installed might be fine.

Thanks to all

    Does it really need Windows for that? Chromebooks could be a very viable choice for such a user. Other than that, any laptop within your budget that has a modern Ryzen APU should be fine. At first glance, the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 17ADA looks promising for that regard.

    HP 15s-eq0025ns or Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15IIL05 looks grea. tIf you don't need specifically a laptop, you can use an Intel NUC.
