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: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/w...=c03540156
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.

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.
