This laptop has an easy to use touch screen, weighs around 3 pounds and has a 6 hour battery life!
Acer C720 can be had for less than $200. It is a Chromebook which relies on Chrome OS and is great for web surfing but little else. The option is worth mentioning but it really does not make the best of list because while Google is offering free space in the cloud to consumers during their first two years of ownership after that point they will only be able to access the Google cloud through a subscription service. Maybe down the road these machines will wind up offering a better package deal.
