Recommendations for cheap (__cheap__) notebook/laptop
April 21, 2014 10:13 AM Subscribe
I'd like to buy a small (10-12 inch screen) very inexpensive (sub-$300) notebook, to use for reading PDFs, taking notes, and very light coding (i.e. emacs and python). Any recommendations would be most welcome.

My main desiderata are a decent screen (ideally something I could use in direct sunlight e.g. at the park, but I doubt that's feasible) and a usable keyboard. I'd like to avoid Windows so I suppose it'll have to be Linux, which is fine with me.
Besides those preferences I'm basically open, so if it's something like a Chromebook with a different OS, I would be fine with that. Thanks!
