Thread Details

Starting this thread for discussing the Best Laptop Deal on Black Friday. I am not talking about the Cheapest model here but the Best Value for a Good Configuration.

The whole intent of this thread is to update each other (and Wiki) about the best possible deal on Black Friday. Thanks for everyone's input so far.

As of today, I found these from the ad scans but this will continue to evolve as more ad scans are released.

Dell Inspiron 15R Laptop w/ Intel Core i5, Windows 8, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD (Exp 11/30) [dell.com] - $699.99 - Really DELL? this is your BF deal? vomit

HP Envy 14" Laptop w/ Intel Core i3-3110M, 6GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Win 8 (dv4-5260NR) [radioshack.com] - $499.99

HP Laptop from Staples - $299.00 [staples.com]

Sams Club - Reps to Geekor

$399 HP Pavilion, i5, win8, 6GB, 500GB
$599 HP Envy, i7, win8, 8GB, 750GB, beats audio

How does this one look?

Regular price $499.99, will be 249.99 at 11am. Looking for a laptop for DS9 and I'd love to avoid walmart this friday! He likes to browse the internet and make stop motion videos.

Thanks!

the Toshiba has better reliability ratings than the HP. For a laptop, to me,that's a huge issue.

I was going to get the HP till I saw the Toshiba. Also, the Toshiba is an online deal that I don't have to wait in line for.
Can you tell me if the Toshiba is at BB on Friday online or is it online now, or is it the Toshiba that is at Office Max? Thanks!!

Is that Asus $250 laptop at Best Buy worth it?

Also should I buy a desktop tower or a laptop? My desktop tower right now is an old Dell and it only has 75gbs so I am either looking to upgrade it (drastically) with the Dell 660s or buy a laptop.

Suggestions?

I am not sure on whether or not to upgrade what I have (drastically) or get something entirely different.

I think this would be a nice low-powered, light-weight laptop for browsing/documents (some light video editing should be fine as well). I'm trying to score one for my girlfriend for christmas.

Do you mean 11am today?

It is a budget laptop. Slow HD and not very big and a low end cpu.

Hey guys, any thoughts on the Dell Inspiron i15N-2548BK 15-Inch Laptop coming up on Amazon? Update:I purchased it during the lightning deal for $330. I just want to know if that was a decent buy or if I should have waited?

Does the 199 amazon have HDMI?

I have in my cart already.

It's for a kid that's broken two laptops in the last three years but she is headed to college in the fall and needs to do her work and stop using my devices for skype everyday. But I still would like to know about HDMI. Thanks guys.

Correct me if I am wrong, the regular price for that laptop is 299.99 here [bestbuy.com]. So it is not really that much of a deal IMO.

It does not just 3x USB

Thanks for the feedback.

So the other only one that might fall in this range would be the BB online only one:

Toshiba Satellite 17.3" i3-3110M 2.4GHz Dual 4GB 500GB HDD Win 8 Intel HD Graphics 4000 1600x900 5.7lb Yes (1)

If that one is priced at $379 or $399 would that be a better option than the Staples since it has the Intel chip vs the AMD?

As far as the A6 vs A8, the OD and OM ones are clocked at 2.7 while the A8 comes in at 1.9. This difference in clock speed between the A8 and A6 should not matter much as far as speed and performance since the A8 is a quad core compared to the A6 being dual core?
Can you please tell me if this Toshiba is online at BB now, or is it on Friday? I am trying to find this one.

Thanks in advance.

It's a similar model, 3 minor differences.

B970 vs B980 - Slightly newer processor, probably negligible.
.3mp webcam vs 1.0mp webcam - Should be noticeable in webcam resoultion
Windows 7 vs Windows 8 - Saves $15 on the upgrade

Not to mention you save 50 bucks. Hopefully they update the one you posted to the newer specs once Black Friday is over, just in case I don't score one.
