starts 9/10 midnight (12AM) and ends on 9/10 11:59PM
or whenever quantity runs out

deal doesnt seem to be live just yet, email is linking to this page which leads to logitech speakers at this moment but it might swap to the laptop soon
DEAL: http://www.tigerdirect.com/sector...he-day.asp


from the look of the picture, specs, and price before MIR, it should be this K55A

OOPS! Today, TigerDirect sent you a Daily Deal Slasher email promoting an ASUS Core i5 Laptop for just $399 after a mail-in rebate. Unfortunately, the offers promoted in this email will not become available until TOMORROW, Monday, September 10.

We sincerely apologize for this mistake and for the duplicate mailing. Our merchants have worked extremely hard to bring you this incredible offer, and we hope you'll be excited about it. It's available only in limited quantities and is sure to sell-out quickly on Monday.

Again, the ASUS Core i5 Laptop for just $399 will become available, for 24 hours only or until sold-out, TOMORROW, Monday, September 10.

Feel free to add, change or remove information shown here as it becomes available. This includes new coupons, rebates, ideas, thread summary, and similar items.


REBATE INFO FROM THE FORM:

If your rebate payment is $5.00 or greater, you will receive an American Express® Prepaid Reward Card issued by AEPCMC under license from American Express Travel Related Services Company, Inc. (the “Reward Card”). Reward cards may be used at merchants in the United States, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands that accept American Express Cards. The Reward Card is given to you as a reward, refund, rebate or gift and no consideration, value, or money has been paid by you in exchange for the Reward Card. The Reward Card cannot be used at cruise lines, for recurring billing charges, at casinos or ATMs. The Reward Card is subject to applicable law; a $2.00 monthly service charge applies but is waived for the initial six (6) months after receipt by cardholder. See cardholder agreement for complete terms and conditions. If you prefer a check, simply call the toll free number on the back of the Reward Card upon receipt and follow the telephone prompts.

According to this article, it has Intel HD Graphics 4000.

That's kind of what I expected, since it does have a Gen 3 Ivy Bridge Processor.

For comparison purposes, this exact same laptop sells for $599.99 at Best Buy.

Yes, I believe so.

You are referring to a different processor that is closer to an i3 and this is an i5 that is third generation, so it has better graphics and improved battery life, as well.

Spec-wise, this deal is pretty similar to the Lenovo z580 staples had a while ago (but you don't need to be a student for this one). Looks like a good deal to me.

Now, I always here about bad experiences with rebates from TD, anyone experience that here? Seems like a really good deal and I might bite, even without the rebate. Just add another stick of ram and this will be good.

Plus, do you know which kind of ram I would need? I can't find it in the specs, (1333Mhz, 1600Mhz? etc.)
