We don't know how you use your computer, but if you use it for purposes like streaming, e-mail, browsing, word processing and other undemanding uses, you don't need more than a moderately powerful machine.

I don't know how tight your money situation is or if you want to likely save hundreds of dollars while getting a satisfactory machine but you may want to consider a machine from Computers for the blind. They sell refurbished machines and I believe laptops sell for about 150 dollars.

Of course, it won't be a really fast machine, but it should be fast enough to satisfy people unless they really want a machine that does things like open programs quickly and other things like convert files from one format to another quickly. But for a lot of people, most of the time they spend on a computer is in working with a program such as in reading and writing e-mails and the time savings is unimportant.

I don't care that my e-mail program takes perhaps five seconds to open my e-mail program and perhaps three or four seconds to open my browser. If I spend twenty minutes going to and reading web pages, what difference does four or five seconds make?

Hi Janit,
I have a Linovo, and I love it!!!!! It's not a touch screen, but even if it was
I wouldn't use it. It's fast, has good speakers, small, lightweight, and easy to
use!!!! Then again I use my computer for pretty basic stuff, emails, Internet
browsing and such, so I don't want/need a real fancy or high-end laptop.
Congrads on your purchase, I hope you'll be happy with it and don't have too
many (or better yet no) issues and that it lasts you a long time!!!!!
Madison

Hi David and All,
David this is so true what you are saying, and I didn't mean to say a Word
Processor though, but to say a Processor for the Laptop I was wanting to buy. I
don't really need a Word Processor, as I will only be doing some basic editing.
Thank you for this clarification. I don't know as much about computers as I
would like to. So, you just tought me something. I bought a Lenovo - IdeaPad 3
15" Touch Screen Laptop - Intel Core i5-1035G1 - 12GB Memory - 256GB SSD -
Platinum Grey. I won't use the touch screen though, it came with the Laptop.

Janet,
There is a difference between a word processor used for writing and editing
documents as opposed to a processor in a computer which can determine its
overall speed and performance. Which term are you wanting more information
about?

Hi Everyone,
I am wanting to buy a Windows Laptop, but I don't know what to look for in a
good Word Processor though, as I've noticed some Laptops have different
processors in them, so I'm not for sure what to look for.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Janet
Peace Be With You.
