HP Laptop 160gb HD+ 1gb ram....$449.99 This laptop is listed as a Fri/Sat sale. I am a rookie BF shopper, does anyone think this is the top laptop at BB of if I am number 50 or so in line and go straight for it will I still have a chance? I know there are better and cheaper ones but I wanted a veteraned BF shoppers opinion based on the ad! Thanks for any feedback!!:D

Not sure all the specs but look at the Dell deals with $$ off codes and see what compares. You may get something a lot better for not much more $ without having to spend all night in line. Seems to me that for the savings in a laptop it is not worth spending the night freezing on a sidewalk.

I am not a big computer nerd and am looking for a good laptop myself. I will say go shopping for yourself BEFORE BF and take those specs with you. See what is out there, ask questions, see what everyone is offering and then you will have an idea if this is one that will work for you. You may need a little more, you may not. But go talk to someone and see, just reading all that doesnt mean anything until you know how it will work for you and the best way is to TALK to someone that knows!! Good luck, I am looking for one this year too, but the wifes surgery will put it back a little.

I would say no, but not entirely sure.... Last year I bought the Gateway Laptop, which was 699.99 (so a lot more) and I had to run back to the appliance area to get it. They don't usually have them out for people to grab (cause it would probably be broken before you got to it) but rather you run to a certain line where you can pick it up.

I agree with ryansplace, maybe you'll have to run to get the article. Maybe if you call your BestBuy after they publish the ad ("officially" LOL) they could give you a heads up on this matter.

9am on Thanksgiving day. The reason for this is that there are less CompUSA's around so alot of people will go to one location.

HP Laptop 160gb HD+ 1gb ram....$449.99

This laptop is listed as a Fri/Sat sale.

I am a rookie BF shopper, does anyone think this is the top laptop at BB of if I am number 50 or so in line and go straight for it will I still have a chance? I know there are better and cheaper ones but I wanted a veteraned BF shoppers opinion based on the ad!

Thanks for any feedback!!:D


For BB I would get there around 11am on Thursday. The reason for this is that BF has gotten alot of press and BB has always been a popular location. Good luck and if you have any more questions please let us know!

The one spec that is missing but important, is the video card is supposed to be an Nvidia and not an Intel. That makes a big difference in performance. I talked to HP support and they said it should have the Nvidia card. All the other models in that line have that video card as well.

No. If you are 50 in line you will not get the laptop. You need to be there around 11am on thursday.

Did you buy the Compusa laptop? I am trying to figure out how to buy that because there isnt a Compusa around here.

Can you tell me where it is on the web-site?

TIA.

I also got the laptop, and the external hard drive so I am a happy camper. I still have to go out though because my Husband's Grandmother needs a cheap computer. ($199 Desktop or $230 Laptop)

Not sure why you would go wait in line for hours for a $449 laptop when there have been numerous opportunities to buy an equivalent laptop online for the same price or less over the past few months.

I got mine early this morning. It is not much different than the Sony, except no line for the extra $50. The CompUSA one is a Toshiba with an ATI X1200 graphics(not as good), but the rest of the specs look to be about the same(it is sold out online).

I would just like to point out I also bought the HP laptop and 2 GB memory off the internet. I payed $25 (shipping) to not sit out in the cold for 15 hours. What a relief it was to wake up and find it for sale online. I woke up early too instead of sleeping in like I wanted to. Something told me I should probably wake up.

Its a weird thing. You can't find much on their website either. The problem is that some of these computers sold by BB or CC and such, have specific model numbers just for their stores. Usually you can find one almost exactly like it at another site or on HP.com, but the model number is off by a digit or two. BB does not usually sell refurbished units except maybe their outlet store.
