Would anyone recommend a new laptop?

I need to buy a new laptop. It doesn't need to be very powerful. I do require Windows and would like something 1kg/2.2lbs. or less. Under $600 would be a good price point.

Hundreds of choices and your demands are so minimal that almost anything will do. But look at Costco. Their online store has 18 computers under $500...all name brands like Dell, Lenovo, Acer, etc. You can buy one, try it out, and return it within 90 days if you don't like what you chose, and you get a 2-year warranty included in the price.

I second Kudzu's suggestion of Costco. You just can't beat their prices along with the 2-year warranty.

If you are not a Costco member, you could try Best Buy, which is where I bought mine.

Walmart has several under $600.00 on display in the electronics dept.

I ended up with a Dell Vostro 13 5391 for $626 - directly from Dell. It has 5th gen i5, 8 gigs of memory and a 256 SSD - 2.7 pounds. It should arrive in about a week.

Congrats on the new computer. It would be helpful to other members if once you’ve used it for a bit to post a short review.

Sounds like you found a very nice and well equipped machine at a good price.

Almost all of my computers have been ordered from Dell and I never had a problem. I call them, tell them what I use it for and I get good advice.
