My old laptop (an HP Probook 4520s) died like 4 months ago, so I was without a laptop since before new year, and the only computer I had was my desktop one. Of course, not so convenient if I want to publish from outside, so I was looking for a second-hand cheap laptop. Finally, I bought an old Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 for a bit more than 200 bucks.
14 inch screen, core i3 processor, 4gb of RAM and JBL speakers. Good enough for programming, playing guitar or of course, writing.
The only trouble I have with it is about the capacitive "SlideNav" panel that IdeaPad's brings built in. It doesn't work on linux (actually, it not even worked on the Windows installation that the computer had when I bought it, so I don't even know if it ACTUALLY works at all).
Anyways, goods news for me :D.
See you soon!
