Our Laptop Recommendation
Thank you for visiting lptps.com!
First of all, for less than $400 you won’t find any notebook that will allow for serious gaming or that will run applications that needs a lot of graphic power. For that you’ll need a dedicated graphic card, which you won’t find in that price range (you’d have to spend 500+ dollars). But if you’re talking about playing older or online games, that’ll work fine.
Right now I’d say that your best choice would be to go with Asus, especially with the Transformer Books. They’re all easy to carry around, will play HD movies and have a good build quality. The detachable 2-in-1 T102HA or the cheaper T100HA are both the best value you can get in that price range. If you don’t need Windows, the Asus ChromeBook Flip is also a good choice.
The Lenovo 11e could also be an interesting option if you use it for business.
I hope that helps!
