I am looking for affordable recommendations for a laptop or chrome book for my 9th grader. She's not a gamer, btw. Thanks!

What do you consider 'affordable' ? What are you willing to pay ?

Is she familiar with a Windows computer already, and/or a Chrome book one ?

"Affordable" is subjective. Having said that, for school work or just normal everyday activities (ie: word processing, email, surfing the web, etc.), most any off the shelf model should be sufficient.

Things to watch for, budget allowing: 1) screen size (bigger is better) 2) HDD (Hard Disk Drive) size - look for 1TB or larger models to provide plenty of storage for all of the clutter younger people collect (music, movies, pictures, etc.) 3) Warranty - Teens are typically rough on stuff and not always purposely so. It's nice to have a safety net.
