I'm trying to find a new laptop for my fiance as the one she currently owns broke. Well the LCD screen broke, it had a major impact making it very difficult to use, were in the process of looking to get a new laptop now.

We're currently on a tight budget and looking for laptops in the $300 range or lower.

I was wondering if this is a good buy, I can't seem to find any reviews or user reviews on this laptop. If its a reliable laptop, this is the one I'm heavily leaning on to get.

Lenovo Thinkpad 11e

Some home owners insurance, and even renters insurance will cover your computers in the case of an accidental drop. There is usually a deductible associated with that though.

If that is not an option for you. You could also just replace the screen on the laptop. If the laptop is still fairly new, it might be worth it to go that route.

If it is just an old laptop and she really needs a new one... This one seems to be decent. But be aware, if she has never worked on a laptop of this size, the keyboard could become frustration to type on. They are typical smaller than you average keyboard.

You can find some deals on dell's website under "deals>outlet" and also check their coupons section.

You can get an Inspiron 15 for about $300 with a coupon!

I don't have either of those insurances unfortunately. And its a rather old laptop by now, I would say its about 3 years old now. Thanks for your suggestions.

Your a life saver man, she checked out the video and really clicked with the Asus Transformer (I completely forgot about that laptop) we'll be getting that laptop as soon as possible. Thats almost $100 in savings we'll be making instead of getting the Lenovo I posted.

Thanks again.

We canceled the transformer order, we got the eebook instead that was also featured in the video. So the wait continues.

Most of the laptops in the video were pretty cool, and I hope you discovered yet another tech channel that is fun to watch. I watch him regularly. TechSource has some pretty good and interesting content :P
