I am looking into buying a laptop for my parents and have a budget of €500. It's going to be used for browsing and email primarily. My only solid requirement is that the screen needs to be around 15" (they have a netbook and they hate it, and the last laptop has a 17" screen which made it a bit unwieldly to transport around).
I've done a bit of research and I've narrowed down to what I think are decent enough laptops for their price. If anyone thinks any of the laptops below are better than the rest, or have an alternative laptop within the €500 budget, I'm all ears.
Samsung Series 3 (i3 2330M, 4GB RAM)
Acer Aspire 5749 (i3 2350M, 4GB RAM)
Lenovo G580 (i3 2370M, 4GB RAM)
Dell Inspiron 15 (i3 2350M, 3GB RAM)
Asus K53Z (A4 3305M, 4GB RAM)
Wildcard: Acer Aspire 5750 Refurb (i5 2430M, 4GB RAM, 3 month warranty)
