I'm on the look for a new laptop because honestly this laptop I am using is on its last legs.

Im NOT looking for a Mac. I want something of great value for money. Nothing too pricey, i.e. nothing more than 400.

Any suggestions?

If you're looking for a Macbook for less than $400, something like Craigslist is going to be your only option.

You're not getting a recent Mac for $400, not even used. You need to be looking at PCs if you want good value. But it depends on what you need the laptop for. Do you just use it for browsing the web or viewing pics? You could just get a $200 Chromebook for that. If you want to use Microsoft office, do mild video editing, or run games (very basic games) then you could maybe get a PC with like an i3, 1tb HDD, 8gb ram for $400, on sale. If you want a laptop as your main computer consider raising your budget by a couple hundred dollars and pick up a PC with an i5 cpu.

Sorry my bad, I meant to say I'm NOT looking for a Mac.

I'll edit the OP.

I dont really play games on laptop or any PC for that matter. Something for everyday use i.e. browsing, doing some work, etc.

Recommend this deal site to find the best sales on a laptop: http://slickdeals.net/ . If I happen to come across a good deal I will post it here

p.s. try to avoid Acer laptops, oh and if you can find a great deal on an i5 go for it. The speed boost is worth it.

I would go on Newegg or a similar site, search for a laptop that meets your criteria (price, screen size, OS, etc.) and look for the best value. I got an Acer Aspire on sale for $356 (reg $799) with free shipping. That was in Oct 2013 and it's still going strong with ~6 hours daily use (mostly word processing, excel, and internet). FWIW, I had a roommate that played online poker that went through two Dells in less than a year.

Chromebook. If all you do is use the computer casually and browse the web, you can easily find something that will suit your needs for under $300.

If you only browse the internet and use a couple popular phone apps, sure. When you need it for stuff more advanced than that tho, it can be very frustrating. I would not get a chromebook as my main computer. It's basically a phone with a larger screen and a dedicated keyboard (with the specs to match).

I got an Acer last year for about 350 dollars, works pretty good for me.

MACs & Apple are overrated. That's a different story.

I have an MSI (don't know the product ref top of my head) but I love it.
