thx, in for one set, will pick one up in SF, good basic laptop that will go to Mexico in a few weeks, at $225 after tax it's pretty good for basic web and music, 4GB ram and 500GB HD, and good size screen for netflix and youtube, why you'd want a 10 inch netbook for the same price?
those POS lease return Pentium 4, with 1GB ram, 80GB HD laptop is selling $150 on neweggs and tigerdirect. don't know what you guys are tripping about.

Passmark score on the CPU is 1448, which isn't to shabby for a low end laptop.
Good enough for browsing the internet and such.
Nice deal. Perfect for the basics if it's just going to sit in the house. My T4300 is just under this benchmark, and it's still very usable, and streams 720p without an issue. No reason to stream any higher if you aren't pushing to a 1080p flatscreen, and why do that to tax your battery?
My wife wanted a computer in the kitchen, so I bought this and hooked it up to a spare Dell 24" 1080p monitor, added keyboard, mouse and speakers and voila. It internets, emails, netflixes, youtubes, pinterests, Hulus and well... you get the point, like a champ. I am quite simply blown away by how beefy of a machine it is for the price. Will it run Battlefield 4? Hell no. Not even a little. But, for my wife pulling up recipes and watching TMZ or some other BS... it works great.
Took forever to load updates, update to 8.1 and remove bloatware, but so far 100% satisfied. Already eBayed the stuff that I didn't want in the bundle which made this more like a $175 investment.
And for those of you that are still debating it: it is dual core. Please, take my word for it. Enough with this nonsense.
Picked one up yesterday and don't regret it. Runs just fine for the basics. Processor stays under 100% utilization even when loading 6 tabs in Chrome at once including 3 Gmail instances. Can't really ask for much more than that at this price point.
And it is dual core, in case anyone was still unsure.
