Top 5 Laptops You Can Buy in Less Than $500 USD

Posted on 11 July 2009

Need to shop a desktop or laptop for your children who are ready to get back to their school. We are presenting here some suggestion for buying a good laptop that are ranging from entry-level to high powered quad core processor machines.

lets have a quick look at the laptops that you may want to buy.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955

Price: 350$

It’s difficult to ignore a laptop that has the price tag of 350$ only, a good television were not this low cost five years ago. But the question arise after seeing such price that what I am getting for such price.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 is one of the entry-level laptop that we choose for our Back-to-School roundup. Its not only the price tag of 350$ catches our attention but its quality also. We can have 15.4” display with all the necessary component like 2.2GHz Intel Celeron 900, 2GB, DDR2 800MHz memory, 160GB 5,400rpm hard drive, Intel GMA 4500MHD graphic card with Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and its weight is just 6.5 pounds.

The good side of the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 is its cheapest price and the decent screen look with great video streaming.

The bad side of the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 is its old slow processor, thick and boxy look and have no webcam.

To conclude it’s hard to argue with a $350 laptop, Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 is basically a Netbook with a large screen and good streaming video result.

HP Compaq CQ60-417DX

Price: 499$

Our second laptop that comes in our back-to-school roundup is HP Compaq CQ60-417DX. The laptop has a price tag of 499$. The thing that make it a complete machine is its component that not only easy to work with it as Netbook but has also the basic items that a standard laptop have.

Specification includes Intel Celeron 900/2.20 GHz CPU, memory 3GB with a Storage of 160GB. It is also supported by DVD +/-RW. The hot 802.11b/g Wireless LAN with Bluetooth 2.0 make it a great laptop. It has Microsoft Windows Vista. So you can consider it while go for shopping.

Dell i1545-012B

Price: 429$

Our next laptop in back-to-school roundup is Dell i1545-012B. It comes with a price tag of 429$. It really worth its price as it has Intel Pentium Dual Core 2.0 T4200 CPU. Display size is also a great factor that play a major role while considering to buy.

Good side of Dell i1545-012B is its 14.7 inches Wide-display screen that is powered with Dual Core CPU.

The bad side of Dell i1545-012B is its very stripped-down design that misses some basic functions.

To conclude Dell i1545-012B is great mainstream laptop that has price less than 500$.

Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965

Price: 449$

Again we have here a Toshiba laptop with a Dual Core CPU in price just under 500$. Can you imagine Dual Core laptop just for 449$ in the time of financial crises.Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965  is equipped with Windows-Vista and it is powered by a dual-core AMD Athlon X2 CPU, 3GB of RAM, a decent 16:9 15.6-inch screen, a DVD burner, 250GB hard drive, and basic ATI graphics–which is a pretty good package for less than $500.

It leave behind the sluggish Intel Celeron processors as it has the dual-core AMD Athlon X2 CPU in entry level price.

The bad side of the Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965 is its bulky design and it also lack some basic feature like Bluetooth and webcam.

To conclude for a price just less than a Netbook, Toshiba’s smart 15.6-inch Satellite L505D-S5965  is  good choice to have and can fulfill one’s basic computing needs.

Asus K50IJ-RX05

Price: 449$

Here again we have another laptop that has price less than 500$. Again the charm in this laptop is its Dual Core CPU. It has 2GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core T4200 that is boosted by 3GB, 800MHz DDR2. It has 320GB 5,400rpm Hard Disk Drive. DVD, Bluetooth, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, 4 USB 2.0, SD card reader increase its charm to have.
