In today’s post I gathered a list of the best value laptops under 200 $ on Amazon currently available on 2015.
Before we start, some of you might be thinking that on this price range one can only afford either refurbished or used laptops, but no, this is a comprehensive list with the best NEW laptops under 200$ on Amazon, and they are entirely new, not even refurbished.
This list also brings a topic that everyone is constantly reading or hearing in any tech related website or communication channel: “The Cloud”.
The cloud for individual users represent the possibility of gathering all of your personal files remotely in a server, allowing you to have the safety of knowing that no matter what may happen with your device, you can easily retrieve all of your data online, a feature that has saved me a number of times and probably you already.
As an example of how clouding computing has probably affected your life we can mention google drive and itunes.
But, coming back to our list of best value laptops under 200 $, you should be probably asking yourself, what is so special about these laptops, and why should I buy one of them?
Most of these laptops (but not all) came with brand new Chrome OS, which is an operational system created by Google. It uses the concept of cloud computing to its max, requiring very little physical disk space in the actual device.
Buying a laptop is certainly a personal choice and it depend what kind of needs you require in your laptop. If you are the typical internet user requiring an internet connection, a web broswer, and the main features found in the MS Office software, this kind of laptop is certainly for you.
If you also travel a lot and don’t feel comfortable typing on the screen of an android tablet or smartphone for hours, I would also recommend the devices on the list, since they are very compact, and – the most important thing – they are light (without the price tag of an Ultrabook).
So, let’s start with the actual best value laptops under 200 $ on this list:
