Default Typing

I am in school, but the school is located in a very low income area, and it is not uncommon to hear about somebody's coat or laptop or phone being stolen. I need a super cheap device that can type. It has to be very good for typing (I don't care if it's a laptop, tablet, ...), below $120 ( I don't mind used or refurbished), portable, and most importantly, will be so crappy looking that nobody would want to steal it. Thank you in advance!

There isn't anything junky enough that won't get stolen if you're in an area like that. If it's tech, somebody will steal it. The only thing possible that won't get stolen is a freakin typewriter.

Yeah I used to work in a low income area (a school)... Even broken laptops from like 2000 would be stolen. Worth less than the sum of their parts.

Best thing to do OP is lock everything down.. Password, encryption, etc, also physical protection (a safe, a computer lock cable thing, etc
