@AniJan If it's for web browsing and note taking, I'd say get the Acer Swift 1 with a pentium n4200, or wait for the gemini lake refresh. The Asus e403na isn't bad either, but its chassis isn't fully metallic, and it's 14" instead of 13. If you're not afraid of chinese companies, the Teclast F7 is a pretty good option for light tasks as well, and it's even cheaper. Unless your high school has wall outlets everywhere, I think you should stay away from powerful used hardware, since a lot of older laptops will not last through an entire day of class.
