    Black Friday is approaching you might be able to save a few extra
    Look now for prices and try and hold off until the deals, some inflate prices weeks before just to look like savings but there'll be some bargains

    If your only using it for browsing, streaming and office then why not try a Chromebook.

    You can get some really good spec used/refurb Thinkpad T-series on ebay. I tend to recommend an i5 (4th gen or newer) and 240GB+ SSD minimum, they don't look pretty but are robust. I had a T410 off of someone on here that's still going strong, since then I had a T430 and now use a T460s as my main laptop.

    They usually have 3 year warranty when new so you ca often pick one up with a year or more warrant left for peace of mind, I think the T450 will be the oldest to look for if you want warranty. If you can get the serial number fro mthe seller you can lookup the waranty with Lenovo:
