I don't believe anyone said it was a Black Friday deal....
They appear to be sold out. They probably just ran the deal until stock depleted.
The Newegg newspaper circular is definitely advertising their Black Friday sale prices. That is where I found the laptop, and I came here looking to see why it wasn't listed online for the advertised price.
The last page of the circular in size 6 font:
prices and terms of offers may change without notice
Edit: and "Offers valid 11/22 to 11/24 11:59PM PST"
Got the memory installed. Only one slot, makes the practical limit 8GB. Took about an hour and was worried I'd damage the computer in the process or not get it back together properly but this thing comes with accidental damage protection and the only "Warranty Void if Removed" sticker is on the CPU socket. Any chance of upgrading the processor on this?
Ended up getting a B830 Processor in mine and it runs fine with 4GB of RAM - ESPN3, netflix, hulu all play fine. Only annoyance is the spacebar.
is there a reasonably easy way to transfer windows to a new SSD?
