Purchased one here in Southwest Florida. The cashier looked up how many laptops were at the surrounding stores and she verified that each store had exactly 3 of the laptops. When I fist got there, she told me that they had 2 laptops and 1 on display. But she later realized they never put the display model out for display. Good luck getting them! All 3 were gone within 15 minutes at the particular store I went to.

This deal compared to the popular Acer Extensa 5230 a few days ago.
You actually have a chance in hell of getting the Extensa +∞ Acer

Got lucky here in West Chester, PA.

Went to church, picked kids up from Sunday school and on the drive home decided to stop in to OD and see if I lucked out... got there at 10:45 and much to my surprise, I got number 2 of the 3 that they had received.

The salesman tried to offer me additional software and services, but was polite and wasn't pushy so I didn't even cut him off. $119 for a 2 year extended warranty on a $319 computer didn't seem to make much sense to him either, so he was even hesitant to offer it.

I did pick up a copy of Win7 Home Premium Upgrade for $49.99 that OD offers with the purchase of any new PC - that covers the other machine in our house that hadn't been upgraded yet.

Thanks to the OP for this deal. It's sitting on the kitchen counter right now waiting for my wife to get home so she can unbox it.

Any of you guys who just got the notebook please download and install Nvidia System Tools 6.05 and see if you can overclock FSB via Performance Tab. My store opens here in 45 min and I am on the edge and if overclock works I will jump.

dhouser - I'm the guy that bought the laptop Sat. evening at the Bethel Park store. I called before going to make sure I could get it at the retail price that evening and then price match it later. Will go back for the price match Monday. Hopefully, Stephen, the sales person did not get in any trouble. Since you indicate no one was in line this morning at the BP OD this morning the manager should just chill out!

I just got back from the store in Aurora, IL (Rt. 59). Nobody in line. Bought 2 of them (son 10, daughter 8). Tried to push ex. warranty, bags, software, etc. Sales person got upset because I did't buy the ext. warranty or anything else. Didn't ask how many more in stock.

I'm sure he will be fine. But he seemed overly upset. I tried to cheer him up a little bit after his boss walked away. I don't think his boss was being mean or anything, I just bet "Stephen" felt bad because he doesn't like making mistakes. Just like anyone else would be.

hurtz777 - I would love to see if it overclocks and that is one of the reasons I am not opening the box right now. Hopefully, someone else will see if it overclocks and let us know. I am also waiting to see if there are any other deals in the next 2 weeks before I open it since OD will charge a restocking fee on open boxes. The Toshiba with a T6500 and the Sony Vaio (T6600) on Black Friday at Best Buy are possibilities but not sure if I feel like camping out Thanksgiving eve.

As info for everyone...

I haven't opened it yet - leaving it for my wife to do later, but I did go on and register on msi.com for the warranty.

The warranty shows as being in force until 10/26/2012 - looks like 3 years from the date of manufacture.

Hit my store in Westminister, nobody even waiting at the door, but there were a dozen people waiting at Michaels (go figure)!

I picked up 2. Since there was no limitation on how many you could purchase, what the heck!

But these guys are apparently trAined big time to shove all the extra wArranty and coverages down you r throat. I told the sales rep they were gifts and I didn't need any extras...

Got out the door finally with 2, woot!!!

I think I got lucky. Even though there is no limit stipulated on the add (like limit one per customer), I was expecting them to deny the second laptop (and try arguing with an officedepot manager). I had a back up plane though, since the store in Oswego (10 min. away) opens at 11:00 am instead of 10:oo am.

If you so choose:

The Office Depot outer box and the MSI inner box can both be easily opened from the bottom by pulling the flaps out, thus not disturbing either box's taped seals on top......
