Solid laptop for $500 or under
Iím trying to help a computer less friend get something that will serve his family well. He is looking for a laptop for $500 or under, that will be good with music and movies. I think his daughter will be using it for school a fair amount. He is on a tight budget so the $500 or less is pretty fixed. What do you guys think will offer him the most bang for his buck in a laptop PC (or Mac if possible). I know it is a tall order, but I dont know a lot about computers so I figured this was the best place to ask.
All suggestions in that price range are appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
