Cheap laptop/netbook

Hello all

I'm a college student looking for a cheap, lightweight laptop. I'm not really interested in power as all I'm going to be doing on it is word processing.

If possible, I would like to be able to install linux on it, but it's not a necessity.

I've been looking at some of the Chromebooks under $350, but there's so many netbooks I don't know where to start!

Any help would be appreciated!
