Many of my students have indicated an interest in buying a laptop and at the moment Harvey Norman has some offers.
I did a search on their site for 14" laptops between $200-$400 and got the following results (click on the link below)...
They are all good entry level laptops and are certainly all you would need for using the internet, checking emails, watching movies, etc.
When you have clicked on the link you can see the laptops, get more information about them and check to see if they are available at a store close to you.
They all run Windows 10, if this is daunting to you don't forget that the Microsoft store at Pitt St Mall offers free workshops for help.
Make sure when you go to the store you stick to spending no more than $350 to $400, despite what the salesperson may say you DON'T need to spend more than this!
Good luck computer hunting,
