At a $400 budget, you can easily pick out a top of the line Chromebook and mid-range Windows laptop.  Although, you likely would have to eliminate all brand new Macbooks from your list, the best you can do is look for a cheaper refurbished or used version if you are really keen on getting a Mac laptop.

One of our favorite laptops on the market right now is the Acer R13 Chromebook.  Priced right at $399.99 at most major retail stores, it is the best bang for your buck, especially if you are just looking to surf the web or watch some videos online.  The best part about this laptop is its available to run Android apps with a (mostly) fully function Google Play Store.  This is a feature that is only available on the newer Chromebooks on the market, and the Acer R13 is one of the first Chromebooks to have this feature. If you already own an Android smartphone, then you than start to think of the endless possibilities of what you can do with a Chromebook that runs Android apps.
