Just got the Best Buy Laptop for $499 no lines great deal;)
The HP - Pavilion Laptop with Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T5800 dv4-1114nr
I just got the same one
No waiting in line for us!
I personally think its the best Black Friday deal that Ive researched this past week. It has an Intel Core 2 which as we know will save battery power and run faster than that one that Office Depot is selling for $349 that comes equipped with a some what older processor know was the Intel Dual Core which more better suited for a desktop. The it has a solid 3GB and 160GB hard drive to start you off with. I personally dont need or want a 250GB HD, wouldnt use it, and it would only take up more battery power. Its has a 14.1 inch widescreen. A nice size that will give you better battery life than a 15.4 inch. However, I will admitt, if I didnt own a desktop then Id definitely want a laptop with a 15.4 inch screen. However, since I do own a desktop, three things that are important to me when buying a laptop is: battery life, size (14.1 inch being the perfect screen), and speed. Im a student and carry my computer around a lot, I dont want a 15.6 inch clunker. But with all aside, I recommend this computer to ever. For just under $500 you are getting the best computer for your $$$. Now dont get me wrong if your looking for the cheapest deal and you arent going to use the computer for many things then the $350 at office depot it alright. Im personally willing to shell out the extra $150 for the better more up to date processer that will give me better battery life and faster speed.
And on a side note, if you need a printer or just want more space and ram, you can get this exact same model that goes for $499.99 for $599.99 and it comes with a 250GB hardrive, 4GB Ram, Epson all-one-printer, and Virus Protection software. Personally I already have a printer, so I dont need one. I dont want the extra hardrive space. The Virus Protection I can get from anyone, plus thats just a bonus that costs Best Buy almost nothing to tack on. So really Id only be digging the extra GB of Ram, not enough to justify buying it for an extra $100 when I could get it for almost half that by itself. But who knows, maybe youd like that extra hard drive space, maybe you need a printer, maybe the virus protection gives you piece of mind, and maybe you like the extra GB of ram as much as I do. It all depends on the person. In the mean time I was to post these to deals up here so everyone has access to them. Seriously why wait "in line" to buy a laptop when you can buy it "on line" now.
Id give links but it wont let me since Im new
Heres the one I got:
Best Buy's Website and search sku 9102017 and it will pop up
Heres the same one, but with the extra stuff for another $100:
Best Buy's Website and search sku 9999101400050007 and it will pop up.
And heres an even better deal for you if you dont mind Windows Vista 64-bit instead of Windows Vista Home Edition. You get a Turion X2 Tl-60 processor which is basically AMD's version of the Intel Core 2 Duo. Then on top of it you get 4G of RAM and a 250GB hard drive. With a pretty cool looking graphic on the top of your case. And btw ignore my buddies one and only review. He wrote that and he doesnt even own the computer. He just wrote it so I would stop debating over which one to get the Intel Core 2 Duo or the Turion X2 Tl-60.
Best Buy's Website and search sku 9125537 and it will pop up.
Anyways good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!
