HP Sleekbook 14-b031us 14" Laptop $197.50 AR B&M YMMV
Staples has the HP Pavilion Sleekbook 14-b031us 14" Laptop on clearance now for $247.50, with a $50 rebate good until 1/26, making the final price $197.50 plus tax. I saw it listed on a clearance board for $380, but it is in the system for $268 and had a $21 instant savings when they rang it up.

SKU is 100374.

Specs at HP site:

Rebate number is #3289960. Link to rebate keeps timing out so just go to Staples Easy Rebate page and search by rebate # or SKU.

Edit: looks like they pulled it from the Staples site so the inventory checker isn't working anymore.

IntelĀ® PentiumĀ® B987 1.5GHz 2MB L3 Cache Processor
4GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory, Expandable to 8GB
320GB 5400RPM Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
4-Cell 37WHr 2.55Ah lithium-ion battery
2 x USB 3.0
No optical drive
14.0-inch diagonal HD BrightView LED-backlit display (1366 x 768)
Windows 8

Some people may snub the processor, but it was pretty close to the older i3 I was looking at for quite a bit more, and it will work for our needs. It was also just released last summer. Hopefully others need a good low-tier laptop and can take advantage of this deal.
