Help me buyy a used laptop pls.

The son want a laptop for Christmas. I’d like to keep it under $300.

I’ve always been wary of buying a use laptop as I’m sure there will be something wrong with it.

Any advice is appreciated.

If it matters, my son will be using the laptop for flash games and watching youtube.

If you shop around, you may be able to get a new one for close to $300. Here’s a description of one at Walmart…Link
