Cheap Laptop/Chromebook for kids

My son is using a Chromebook a lot at school so I thought we should look into buying one for him for home. I can certainly find one cheap (Newegg has one for $89) and I am fully aware it would be a lot slower than a laptop but hey for a kid who needs to access Google Docs for school and maybe wants to watch YouTube I am not sure he need a lot of power.

What are the opinions around here? If I wanted to get him something but not spend much more than $150 what should I look for?


Sure thing! I started my boys on a Chromebook and they eventually moved on to a regular laptop, but it was a good learning tool for them.
