Need Some Help

My laptop is old XP and I cannot access a lot of websites anymore.
I need to buy a new one but can not even make a selection on any websites. I am still in the hospital and do not have access to anything other than this one.

I can't even pay some of my bills online anymore.

I need a CHEAP small notebook/laptop [I have a small Acer right now]

All I need is W10 Home and WiFi capability. Storage is not a concern, only fast enough web performance to9 not fall asleep waiting to change pages.

I'm looking for under $200.

Could some see if they cab find something along these lines and post a link to it for me to use?

I will be forever in your debt!

Thanks

If you just need to use a web browser, email client, spreadsheet, word processor, etc., you could just use your XP laptop and boot a small Linux live OS, such as Antix or Puppy.

You just have to make (or get) the live USB (or CD/CVD), which is very easy.

Hope you get better soon!

This is what makes this place great.

I just feel like a shit for not doing it first.

Tom, I could send you two 'live' linux CDs in case you do not get a new computer. One disc is for 32 bit, the other 64 bit. I have Linux Mint on my old Acer laptop and it still works great!! Linux Mint is very fast and easy to install. You can install it side by side with the Windows part of your hard drive. It's called duel booting.

I went to school in Olean, NY years ago and we were practically neighbors, so if I could help in any way feel free to ask.

Good luck,

Jackie
