Probably about as low as an SSD-ready (and i3-comparable) basic laptop will get with decent availability. Even if battery life was only 3 hours (I haven't found any statements of actual runtime), it'd still be a good value. If there's anything in general to watch out for, it'd be build quality, flex, and for dell in particular, possible plug/battery issues later on (Does dell still use a detection circuit to prevent aftermarket ac adapters and batteries, a detection circuit that occasionally breaks down and fails to detect original ac adapters or batteries too?).

Overall value-wise, the a10 w/ touchscreen (but no Bluetooth) HP that sold for about 12 hours from BB for $280 a couple weeks ago probably edges this out, but if you didn't need touch and want to pare your costs down, this Dell's still good for the basics.

At this rate, I'm not sure we'll see much better values in the budget laptop category for BF-January, aside from limited clearances. Maybe we'll get lucky and see i3-comparable 1080p SSD-capable laptops in the $250-280 range.

Of the low cost laptops advertised this week this one stands out to me, Passmark of 2608, 6GB, and it is a Dell 5000 series, most others at this price point are in the 3000 series.

You are describing what I am looking for. It may take another 6 months for a 1080p screen to become standard on even low-end laptops. I hope SSD will appear in more $400 machines.

people have to stop lapping up 720p screens for the market place to get the memo.. they even make CHEAP HDTVs w 720p... the cost to make 720p vs 1080p is negligible.. the bigger jump is in 1080 to 4k..
