description on Staples site cannot be right. Either they put wrong cpu # or wrong cpu frequency.

"Each core offers a base speed of 1.8 GHz but can dynamically increase clock rates with Turbo Boost up to 2.5 GHz (for 2 active cores) and 2.7 GHz (for 1 active core)."

I tried to buy the laptop that is is mention in the second link for $300.00 and at checkout Staples is telling me that the total is $486.44 ?????

Coupons & Rewards -$54.00
Subtotal:$449.99
Delivery:Free
Estimated Tax: $36.45
Amount Due:$486.44

I did try to add the online coupon, but it is not accepting it

The coupon should work, since the terms say "regularly priced $499.99 or above", which both of the laptops are. You could probably try to contact customer service and I'm sure they would honor it.

How does this compare to the Asus [staples.com] that sold out quickly yesterday? Obviously a big difference is no touch screen which means we don't get the free software.

A little odd that it is so hard to find any reviews online from anywhere....makes me a bit nervous.

While currently sold out online, at least these are still found instore unlike the Asus so this one is still obtainable.

I believe the ones ending in .90 are deemed "clearance" anyhow and this coupon is supposed to exclude clearance anyhow (although I think I did see it working on one that is $549 and says "clearance" on that page).

My dad has a Toshiba (T1-35-S1305) and so far it is pretty rock solid with no issues, at least a couple years old.

My main concern is running Windows 8 on a computer without a touch screen...I've heard not so good reviews in most of those situations.
