Ozamiz laptop

My friend wants to buy a laptop computer for her 13 year-old daughter in Ozamiz City, Philippines, for about $500 Canadian/US. Could you recommend a reliable brand and model for that price, and possibly a retailer in or near that location? Thanks.

Response by poster: $500 works out to about 21,500 Philipine pesos. She is sending her daughter the money rather than buying the laptop on the internet and paying shipping. Presumably that is more economical?

Lenovo makes some pretty good laptops for maybe $350. Shipping for $150?

Lenovo is good quality

Can I suggest that 500 has lots of options and most will be similar. Look for service & warranty.
