Good day,

I would like some help with choosing a laptop.

I currently do online teaching and I am looking to buy a brand new laptop. The problem is i dont know what to choose.
There are so many products in the market. I am looking for something under $400 ( R7000 rands)

I don't know whether to choose a celeron or i3 processor. I currently use a teaching software/program + manycam+ skype+ zoom.

I am not interested in gaming. Please provide some help.

A typical under $400 machine will only get your 4GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD. For video meetings, you need a machine with 8GB of RAM. And 128GB of disk space won't leave you much room to store anything. Consider upping your budget to $800 which will get you a mid range laptop. If you buy a $400 laptop, you will regret it very soon.

I agree with lunarlander.
An "under $400" brand new laptop is not going to provide you with the speed and hardware you need.

If you have documents in an online storage, and you are not planning on installing too many programs, then you probably can get away with 4GB and 128GB, but depending on the brand you would be looking at $600 ish... $800 ish will get you the 8GB and 256GB.

Can you be more specific on the other apps you are looking to use? If your job/school provides Office365 account, you can use Word/Excel online with OneDrive for storage.
