friend of mine has this on backorder for $300.. should she cancel and buy this instead
this was front page a couple weeks ago:: Best Buy has the Dell Inspiron Laptop with Intel Pentiumâ„˘ Dual Core P6200 Processor, 17.3" Display, 3GB Memory, 320GB Hard Drive for $299. Model: 17R-964MRB
Seems like an amazing deal for a new 17" Dual Core! This appears to be online only- not available in stores. Get free shipping with Best Buy though now through Christmas. May also be of interest that the cheapest 17.3" laptops I'm finding in the BF ads are $349 for OD (HP) and BB (Toshiba).

Got one today, and man, am i happy with this thing!!!
The screen is sweet, i can view 1080p videos fullscreen from youtube with no problems.
The sound is decent, the keyboard is good, i'm typing on it right now, the touchpad is good, i wish it had multi touch gestures, but other than that it's responsive and precise.
mm....it's not a feather, but i can lift it up with one hand, which is my test of a laptop being too heavy...
Overall, i'm totally satisfied, and the price makes it a no-brainer for me!
