~ $500 Laptop (<14", 8GB RAM)

Hi all,

I've been asked by a family member to find a new laptop for them to do some web browsing and photobooks.

Must haves:

  • Screen smaller than 14"
  • 8GB RAM (or 4GB if RAM upgradeable)

Anyone know of a laptop that meets these specifications?

    <500 going to be hard without stacking discount cards and cashback promo

    Will they consider secondhand?

      I've already tried and they've said no. I've seen some good 2nd hand ones myself.

      This Officeworks one seems to be the same laptop but with 8GB RAM and $2 cheaper?

      However at $500 I think it makes more sense getting refurbished/2nd hand laptops.

        "However at $500 I think it makes more sense getting refurbished/2nd hand laptops."

        Why does it make more sense to get refurb/2nd hand at $500 ?

        I'd go with refurb/2nd hand if your budget is < 300 aud

          For the spec that OP is asking?

          With $500 you could probably get ThinkPad T460s or X1 Carbon Gen 4 + replacement battery, and would be a better laptop than the HP.
