An actual budget laptop for school?

Okay so I watched Linus’s video of “budget laptops for school” he made a month ago and they seem to be far out of my price range. I’m here to ask anyone if they have any decent laptops for school around maybe the $400 range

You can find Lenovo T460s for that. Perhaps even some X250s. Those are what I'd aim for. I've seen NOS units sell on eBay for a little over $400.

 

Your title is a little off; even a $2,500 laptop is a budget laptop. Just happens that the budget would have been something around $2,500. You're looking for an ultra low budget laptop.

Would the Acer Aspire E15 be good?

used is going to be your friend here. otherwise you'll end up buying something cheap and slow that only happens to be newer but thats the only positive.

Barely fits the 'OK' category. But I still wouldn't recommend it
