    "The Acer Aspire 3 is one one of the best values you'll find in the budget laptop lineup. The case is pretty cheap and the screen isn't spectacular. However, you get a huge amount of computing ability with 6 GB of ram and a 256 GB solid state hard drive. At under $500, you won't find many better value machines."

    "Is a computer affordable if it drives you nuts? I suppose you generally get what you pay for, and you're not paying for much here. And buying a computer from Walmart means you're pretty much on your own. This machine might work for Grandma who only reads email, but for most other people with a variety of tasks and interests, it's probably a bad deal."

    "I was a bit tight for cash, and I was looking for a new laptop, so I went to an online consumer guide's section on the best affordable laptops, and they recommended the Dell i7559-763BLK. I looked around for them, but found them to be a bit on the expensive side. Nonetheless, I picked one up at a local electronics chain, got it home, and it's a nice machine, but more of a gaming computer than the pragmatic budget laptop I was looking for - it was overkill, and had lots of features I didn't need. Thankfully the store had a generous return policy, and I got my money back and purchased something more suitable. It's a good laptop, but not really a basic and affordable one."
