Keeping Laptop Prices Cheap does not mean limiting Quality

Each year will bring new laptop models which will reflect varying levels of features and each will also focus on specific consumers as well as price points. The basic laptop models are going to have what most people are looking for in a cheap laptop under 200 dollars. Even the basics are going to have multiple methods for connecting to the Internet such as Fast Ethernet as well as WiFi options. These days either one of these are going to be fast, and for those laptops designed with 802.11G for instance the speeds are going to be quite acceptable for gaming on the laptop as well. This will however depend greatly upon the actual download and upload speeds which you are getting from your Internet Service Provider or ISP. In most areas today there are options which are at least adequate for streaming video and gaming too.

Within the last few months there has been a noticeable amount of great laptop deals under 300 dollars each of which have the two ways of network connectivity, wired and wireless, yet these also have faster Central Processing Units (CPUs) as well. The Intel Dual Core processors can be found in many of these, from various manufactures, and they ultimately help the laptop perform faster during anything that you do on it. However if you are really considering what the additional cost will bring you should consider the following. By simply paying a little more for the laptop, yet remaining under $300 the processor may in certain units have better caching capabilities which will help in the performance of the laptop when you are online gaming for instance. This tends to be worth considering and looking further into to those consumers who like to use their laptops for these purposes. But what if you only need to do the basics on your laptop?

Refurbished Laptop

Those people who only need a basic notebook computer are in luck as well. Sure, there are going to be standards these days which in the past years would have cost far more but when they are considered standard even on the cheap laptops then there is relatively little price difference for them. If you look at some of the laptops for 200-300 dollars over the last year for instance then you will see some similarities among them no matter which manufacturer they are. This is in essence a great example of how the standard features within lower priced laptops today are found on the various cheap refurbished models. The overall speed however is going to depend on far more than just the CPU and the caching capabilities yet many consumers merely want to know the less technical information regarding the laptop specifications. So what we typically find is that people are interested in the connectivity options, the processor speed, the amount of Random Access Memory or RAM, and the hard drive space.

Sure, these are just the basics but you might be surprised at how often people only consider things like how many USB ports there are or whether there are ports for SD Cards and similar features as an afterthought. It is interesting but ultimately when people are considering the benefits of any cheap laptops under 300 dollars they will have what they want already in mind to some degree. We always recommend doing at least some research into the individual models before making a decision. This will help you understand not only the features better but the quality of the laptop as well.

Reliability in the Cheap Laptops you find for Sale

Being able to rely on a cheap laptop to complete what you might think of as basic tasks actually can involve some rather impressive accomplishments within the computer itself. Even the things which you do everyday on your computer still require the perfect work of the components within the laptop (CPU, motherboard, RAM, etc...) operating in conjunction with each other. Today’s cheap laptops for sale may be really affordable compared to the higher ranges of really fast and powerful laptops, but their core components are still representative of the advanced technologies which are at the forefront of mobile computing today. The amazing thing is often that these laptops can be as cheap as they are and still be so fully capable of doing what you need them for in a completely reliable manner.

For many people who rely on their laptops when they are working in areas abroad, they will utilize these same basics as part of their daily routine. Take creating and sending a simple email for instance. There is a need for a connection to the Internet and the cheap laptops for sale today all have a choice of either using the LAN over Ethernet (the cheap laptops for sale all still come with an RJ-45 port built into them) or they use the wireless capabilities which are also already built into the laptops. The user creates an email with their local client or they may use a web based account. The email is addressed and sent over the selected connection whether it is wired or wireless. It sounds much more complicated than it is when we actually do since we do it so frequently and do not need to put that much thought into what is going on behind the scenes so to speak.

So today you should expect that any cheap laptops for sale which you consider buying will have built in networking connections that give you an easy solution to whatever forms of connectivity that you may have wherever you are. If you travel a lot then you may find that not every location which you visit will have a wireless connectivity option established there. This is fine as it simply means that you will use the Ethernet over the LAN instead and then connect out through to the Internet that way. The cheap laptops for sale will provide you with plenty more than just this, but still you will know that even the most mundane basics are going to be accomplished easily right at your fingertips.

Dell D610 Laptops For Under 200

Among the various cheap laptops under 200 dollars we see each day are some great standards like the Dell D610 Latitude model.

D610 Laptops Under $200

This laptop provides the user with an Intel Pentium M processor typically in the 1.8GHz range depending on the original configuration. This particular incarnation of the Pentium M uses a 2MB L2 cache with a 533MHz bus. This was at one time an impressive specification yet obviously these days this would be considered quite slow compared to the much faster dual and quad core processors found in laptops.

The older cheap laptops under 200 today do provide people the opportunity to own examples of what used to be quite cutting edge in the world of portable computing. Just because these are not as fast as the new models does not mean that they are not reliable and quick. They can provide a solid basis for normal computing tasks just as they were designed to do. The Latitude D610 laptop which often sells for under $200 typically comes with one or two gigs of RAM and the maximum memory is 2GB to be placed in the two SODIMM slots. Obviously this configuration would equate to two 1GB sticks of memory to max out the RAM.

Among the standard features found in the D610 is an S-Video TV out port, USB, serial port and parallel port. Yes, this is an older laptop as you really don’t see specs like this on newer models but you will frequently find this on the laptops under $200 however.

The diagonal screen size is 14.1 inches. The SXGA display is capable of delivering 1400 x 1050 at 262,000 colors. This model also came with an internal Mini PCI Wi-Fi card and optional Bluetooth wireless capabilities.

One interesting note about the D610 is that they have both integrated and discrete video options. Back when this laptop was first release it would have appealed to those looking for a fast, reliable business class laptop computer with an emphasis on producing quality video in a variety of situations. These days these are basically great laptops for under $200 which still happens to be able to provide people with a solid cheap laptop option.
