How does the trade-in savings work? Do you have to buy in store or can it be done on-line? Does the trade-in have to be working?

At $350, I'd say it's an "ok" deal based on the CPU and GPU. The CPU is ranked 173, the GPU is a "Intel HD Graphics 5500" ranked 296, on NotebookCheck.net. (the place I always go, but there are others)

Factoring the hoops to get it at that price, the value of your "trade in", and the risks of rebates in general, make it not a good deal.

Others agree with my assessment or suggest other spec compare sites?

Too much work, trade. Price isn't that great, especially this close to Black Friday. BestBuy had an i5 for $350 without trade/rebate awhile ago. Also need more info in title like Staples - $350 After Trade & Rebate - Toshiba Satellite L55-C5272 i5 15.6" 8GB RAM 1TB HD

No price in title. Was hoping for $0. What a bummer.

The instant rebate is not really an instant rebate when this computer was $499 a month ago. Trade-in dollar amount is up in the air until the disclaimers are posted at the staples link. Powers on and has cable sounds more like a bait than anything else. Thus all the TDs.
