Laptop advice needed please

Posted 31st Aug
As my wife returns to work as a childminder, I'm going to avoid her potentially Covid kids in another room. What would you recommend as the best sub £200 laptop for simple web browsing. New or reconditioned?
Thanks

Cheap chrome book
Or Hazmat suit
Finding hard to recommend anything new for £200.
For new Its worth spending a bit more and you get a better system.
For under £269 you get a decent processor with 8GB Ram and a 256GB SSD. Or just get a refurbished.
If it's just for web browsing, why not get a tablet instead? Most are available with keyboard cases if you'd prefer that to an on-screen keyboard. Tablets are usually lighter, more compact and the batteries last longer than laptops in the same price bracket.

Having said that - a lot of web browsing experience is better on a desktop OS. So Chromebooks make sense, more than Windows machines, if new. On the other hand, there's always places like ITZoo for decent 2nd hand machines.
Thank you all. Plumped for the Chromebook.
