    I've always been a Lenovo fan...but probably not in your price range. Really just about any new laptop will work these days, they're all pretty good...stick with name brand though so like Lenovo, Dell, HP, Acer, etc.

    Forget the CPU specs, it doesn't matter. Biggest bang for the buck is amount of RAM (8GB is almost not enough for modern Windows) and SSD vs spinning disk (5400, 7200 RPM).

    For the display (screen) TN isn't going to look as good (grainy look, poor viewing angle) but will be much cheaper than IPS screens.

    Ideally you can upgrade components later too. If you don't want to worry about data transfer later (or Windows reinstall etc) get the SSD now. Size doesn't really matter since you can keep a lot of stuff in Google Drive etc.

    RAM is much easier to upgrade but can be pricey especially if you wait too long and you need to buy new, old stock. RAM is generally just expensive right now anyways.

    Flash/SSD memory looks to be bound for a price correction in the next 12 mths or so, which means upgrading from spinning disk to SSD would be relatively inexpensive.

    In your price range if you can find 8GB memory + SSD and have to compromise on the screen and CPU you're doing well, imho.

    Or look for a used laptop with an Intel Core i3 or i5 and upgrade the RAM or disk to suite.

    Also depending on what you need it for look into a Chromebook which will be much cheaper but won't have Windows, Office, etc available.

    I work at Red Hat now and even prior to that just use the Google Suite stuff for word documents etc. Works great for me. I haven't had a Windows computer in nearly a decade.
