Well, yeah, looking for something like an android laptop. Hopefully something at around the $200 mark. Front-facing camera is a must, keyboard is a must, peripheral functionality (USB devices and such) is a bonus, as long as there's at least a touch-pad or something for a mouse. Don't care much about external video output options.

You either get a Chromebook or a tablet with a keyboard attached.

You could get a used laptop and install Android X86

A new laptop or even tablet for $200 is likely to be a massive disappointment and you probably will have buyers remorse.


That being said a Chromebook might be a decent option. It can run most Android apps and you can get a Chromebook within your budget. Still, it Is likely to be junk and I would recommend something used at the same price point.

Not sure I'd want Android x86. Definitely don't want a chrome book.

That looks good, but a bit pricy. I might try a cheap chromebook. As long as I can get to the play store and do what I need to do, it'll be fine. I just keep running into things that are android (play store) only, and I don't really like using my phone for them. A crappy chromebook would be more comfortable.
