Default In Need of a Windows 7 PC

Hey all,

A friend of mine has a really old Compaq laptop with Vista Basic on it. The laptop constantly reboots....I can't even get into the OS. When I try to boot into an Ubuntu live CD it reboots as well, same thing with a Vista recovery disc. I think it's an internal hardware problem (maybe the motherboard?) that I cannot fix.

So, with that said, I may need to suggest a new computer. The problem is, they're not so good with technology, so Windows 8 is not an option.

Are there any places to buy a Windows 7 laptop for around $300-$400? Something basic for web browsing/word processing would be fine.

Thanks for the help !
