If you're not in a rush, and can wait till the end of the summer, I know quite a few states have "tax free" back to school days. In TN, it is the first weekend of August and since our sales tax rate is 9.75% that is a huge deal. Computers up to $1500 are included in this.


I am waiting until then to buy a new laptop. I almost bought during the April tax free days, but my classes were ending within a week and I could wait (and 3+months in computer land means more computer for the same price.) One thing I will say is that if you are planning on buying for college level classes, you may want to spring for 2GB RAM. A lot of schools are just beginning to incorporate 3D web (such as Second Life) into the classroom and by the time this years new students graduate in 4 years or so, that will be pretty common.

FYI, if you are a Costco member, there is a coupon in the new summer "Passport" for a HP 15.4" Core 2 Duo notebook with 2GB RAM and 160 GB hard drive, web cam and DVD RW that will be available 8/6-12 for $849.99. This coincides (partially) with our TN Tax free days and since they now offer the Costco concierge service for computers and televisions, the warranty on this is extended for 2 years for free. So I can really walk out of there with that laptop for $850; no tax and no extended warranty fee. Yay!:D
