Discount Laptops Under 400

October 25, 2011


With today’s economy most are more frugal than ever before. I remember ten years ago it was almost impossible to find discount laptops under 400. Today you can find laptops under 400 that will meet and exceed most consumer expectations. Last month I had a little bit of extra money in my budget and decided it was time to upgrade to something new.

With my budget I was looking at laptops under 400 dollars. I narrowed my search down to three discount laptops under 400. I had to have at least a 15.6 inch monitor, 4GB ram and a 320GB hard drive. The laptops I found with these specs and within my price range are listed below:

  • Toshiba Satellite C655-S5339 – 15.6” Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Notebook
  • Acer Aspire AS5750Z-4887 – 15.6” Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Notebook
  • Lenovo G570 (43344QU) – 15.6” Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Notebook

Get Prices on

While all three have what I’m looking for, there are a few other things to consider when formulating my final decision. One of the most important differences is battery life. The Acer and Lenovo average about 4.5 hours battery life while the Toshiba gets about 5.5 hours on a charge. To me this is a significant advantage for a laptop at this price point. While most specs are almost identical there is one other major difference between the models. The Toshiba also has a 10-key on the side. Although this may not seem significant to many, if you are in the habit of using one it’s a nightmare when no longer there. I end up wasting time when typing because I’m a creature of habit and I find my fingers reaching out for what isn’t there.

My final decision was the Toshiba and I’ve been very happy with it. With the 10-key on the side and the extra battery life when compared to the other models is a great addition to the already wonderful laptop. Be sure to pay attention to the little details when comparing models, because these are the little things that really will stand out throughout your experience!
