Cheap PC or laptop. $375 can get you a decent laptop for movies.
can you give me some recommendations
If it is just for movies and such it does not need to be anything special.
Personally I would look at a refurbished Asus Transformer or the like. ... but that is just my opinion.
Honestly a chromebook should be fine for what you want to do and I would recommend this one.
While I dislike Acer their chromebooks are pretty good and this one has an Nvidia Tegra in it.
If i were you. I would get a chrome book on sale. Ive seen them for about 120$.
There is a new 13 inch acer chromebook coming out with the new nvidia k1 gpu in it. I have had a chromebook for 2 years now and as a secondary computer chromebooks are great. It comes out in September and a few different configs.
so i found these.... which would be the best?
I would highly recommend a chromebook for your needs. If you're not going to be gaming or using heavy applications, then there is no use in spending extra money on a laptop or PC. Most people out there today would do better off on a chromebook than a laptop or full size desktop. Those of us that edit photos, render video, and code can use the horsepower of a full size PC. If you want to game, you pretty much have to have a strong laptop or at least a mid-range PC. However, most people use their computers just to surf the web, watch youtube, and play games on Facebook. Those people don't need anything more than a chromebook or a tablet.
