cheap laptopsA Cheap Laptop is the computer of choice for millions of businessmen, scientists, students, and people on the go in general. Refurbished and used laptops offer big savings to shoppers. A cheap laptop is capable of many of the same tasks that desktops perform, although typically less powerful for the same price.

They contain components that are similar to those in their desktop counterparts and perform the same functions but are miniaturized and optimized for mobile use and efficient power consumption.

Cheap laptops usually have liquid crystal displays and use SO-DIMM (Small Outline DIMM) modules (rather than the larger DIMMs used in desktop computers)for their RAM. In addition to a built-in keyboard, they may utilize a touchpad (also known as a trackpad) or a pointing stick for input, though an external mouse or keyboard can usually be attached.

Many people just like the compactness and mobility of these machines, and the ability (with wireless) to carry them from room to room and even enjoy work and play outside on the deck, by the pool, or in the garage.
