Specs:
Laptop is NOT 1.2 GHz, it is 2.13 GHz!!!!!
Laptop has GPS.

Purchase:
SALE PRICE DROP - PRICE MATCH: inventory check screen at the store displays drop in price (effective 12/30/10) to $329.99. For anyone price matching to the new $329.99 and had the the "Free" 19.99 antivirus software (like mine), make sure they discount the price properly. You should get $27+tax back. $329.99 - $19.99 software = $310. (356.99 - 329.99 = 27 or 337 - 310 = 27). Note: to avoid having to re-ring, manager can manually override price from $329.99 to $310 because of the antivirus.

Don't forget to ask for your Reward Zone points!

Additional Peripheral Discount - Printer for $19.99!:
the Epson 520 printer is back to regular price - NO SALE PRICE AND NWO NO WAY to get the printer for 19.99 anymore! http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Epson...8197012320
But for those of you that need a printer can take advantage of the printer discount promotion. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspa...4300050019

Laptop Case:
Model No.: HP WU677AA #ABL. Available from Buy dot com $22.38+tax shipped; Walmart has it for $22.84+tax for site to store pick-up. Both stores listed in CB rebate website.

MOST SUCCESSFUL WAY TO GET THIS LAPTOP FOR $359:
1. Request inventory check via SKU# 1126323.
2. If price shows on screen as $4-5XX.XX, request that the BB employee searches the stock at another store. (The screen prior to the current store's product information will show all store locations and avail. units on hand). One of them is bound to have it marked down as $359. *Item will be noted as "DELETED" in the system.*
3. Request BB price match if they don't offer you the price.

TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS:
Anyone that is having issues with the touchpad, try installing the newest driver! Latest version:15.1.22.2 http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers


Best deal for extended warranty


***Added by me Gigahetz21***------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For all those getting this laptop, don't forget to get an extended warranty....I can't tell you how many laptops of friends and family have failed after a year or so.

The cheapest way to get a 3 year extended warranty is go to squaretrade.com and do a quote for a laptop. If you enter $356 for the laptop price the warranty should be $60, now apply the coupon code "FF30" and the price will drop to $30 for a 3 year warranty. *Update* The coupon code will apply to your order correctly but after you press the order button, it says you can't use the code. It says it's not valid with the product....so just google around and find another coupon code to take some money off the warranty.

You can add protection from drops, spills and other accidental damage for $40 more to make it $69.99 total for a 3 year extended warranty if you tend to be accident prone.

If the link below stops working just go to squaretrade.com and do the quote yourself:
https://www.squaretrade.com/buyer..._campaign=

Squaretrade discount code: FF30 (or TWTYOFF for a 20% discount). Some other possible codes are listed at http://www.retailmenot.com/view/squaretrade.com

Repost of a killer deal:

http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2512721

Two problems in my case:

1. I'm away from home and far from a Best Buy.

2. Someone already posted in the other thread that they searched all of the stores near where I live and found the last one.

So it's listed as $549 on the shelf but it doesn't ring that way? How does anyone know this?

Hmm, the availability checker just says "in store only" for all the stores near me. Doesn't say if it is actually available. Frown

if it saids in store only that means that they actually have some in that store.

im posting from it right now, and everything is pretty smooth. only thing that i dont like so far is the multi-touch scrolling ( like a macbook).

anyways here is the specs and the receipt for anybody who wants it.

Wow. Upset. I went to the store on Christmas eve because bb.com said "in store only" but they told me they ran out days earlier. I will try again tomorrow I guess, but I wonder how long this will last.

Even though it says unavailable on the website, is anyone getting success with going into the store to see for themselves?
