Help me find a LINE (in) on a cheap laptop

I need a cheap laptop that runs Windows 7 (or 8) and would be good for audio recording. Basically, it needs to run skype and have mini-jack inputs for headphones and a mic. Can you help?

I am finding lots of $300 and under laptops online but the specs on such machines are so fuzzy and I don't know if the brands are trustworthy (Acer, etc). Due to the specs being underwritten for such cheap machines, I don't know which ones have mic-inputs and my experience with mini-jack to USB adapters has been less than good.
Can you help point me in a direction?
