This is a great affordable option that will meet most students needs. With its sharp 11.6" display, the video playback is good and the size gives you a keyboard whose size allows easy typing.

There are not many new quality laptops under $400, but we did find a couple that has great reviews.

For a laptop that is 400, this laptop is an amazing all round laptop. This laptop comes with a built-in camera that actual takes pretty awesome video even in low light. The processor and sound quality are very good. The laptop box itself is very well built, the case and fittings are made of a very high quality matte black.

While the basic computer is fine for most casual surfing, email, and movie watching, if you want it to a bit more powerful you can upgrade the memory and CPU.
