Here’s a list of laptops you can go for if you’re looking for a cheap, portable computing solution that doesn’t require a lot of processing power.

Budget laptops often receive a step-motherly treatment by consumers and manufacturers, as they lack the horsepower to run demanding applications such as Adobe Photoshop effectively. That being said, if your use of a laptop is restricted to text editing or web browsing, a cheap laptop is all you’ll really need to get work done without burning a hole in your pocket.
