Recommend me a sub-$200 netbook/laptop
UPDATE: Please stop suggesting Lenovo laptops since I have not found one that fits my needs. If you know of a model with at least 4 hours of battery life, under 3lbs, under 14" screen, and under $200 then let me know but so far all recommendations do not fit this criteria.
My current netbook is on it's last leg (the replacement keyboard is failing, the battery barely holds a charge, can't handle most video streaming, basic browsing of the filesystem is slow and laggy, etc...) so I'm looking to replace it with a cheap sub-$200 device that I can carry with me but I won't care if it gets broken or stolen.
What it needs to do:
- Web browsing
- Video playback (YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and recorded 1080p)
- RDP to Windows servers
- 10/100 Port (willing to use a USB to Ethernet adapter)
- Have a battery life of at least 4 hours under normal usage
- Less than 3lbs
- Less than 14" screen
- Less than $200 shipped (Paypal payment is a huge plus)
What I'm looking at:
- Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 11
- Lenovo IdeaPad 100s
- HP Stream 11
Any suggestions or recommendation are greatly appreciated. I've been researching different devices for the past 2 days and still can't decide. I think I've narrowed down the processor at least but still not 100%, The Intel Celeron N3050 and Intel Atom Z3735F are at the top of my list but I'm seeing some cheap refurbs with i3/i5/i7s that would be overkill but more performance per dollar is better than an 8 hour battery life.
