We received that laptop recommendation request from Beverley who’s looking for a 12-inch for her 13 years-old daughter. Let’s see!

Our Laptop Recommendation
Thanks for writing to lptps.com!
There are few options at that price, but let me suggest what I would buy for my niece if I was in your position. I would definively no go under 12-inch if she has to type a lot since the keyboards on 10 & 11-inch are quite small.
The first one I would suggest is a little over your budget at $399, but it’s probably the best budget 12-inch you can find. The HP Spectre X2 is a sleek detachable laptop with a very decent keyboard and 12-inch HD screen. It’s ultra portable and has a battery that last quite long.
The Asus Transformer Chi is also a good choice at less than $400. It’s another detachable laptop with a 12.5-inch HD screen and has decent power (enough for what she needs).
If she doesn’t need Windows, I would definitely consider the Acer ChromeBook 14. It has an HD 14-inch screen in a solid all-aluminium body. It’s probably the best chromebook on the market right now and for someone that uses internet for everything, that’s a great portable choice at a little over $250.
And tell me which one you chose, I’m interested!
Don’t hesitate if you have any other question,
