Current price on this laptop is $399.99 using In-Store Only coupon code, 54669 you will get $100 off any Windows 8 device. This coupon just came to me via email.

For $299 this beats the front page deal on this laptop from February which had it down to $325 I believe...

They usually sit around for a while and are used as spares, eventually given away or sold
Plus if you have students in your family they need backups, spares and immediate replacement. They drop their laptop thus cracking the screen. You have one for them right away to send via FedEx to their college or what have you

Laptops are becoming very well put together hi-tech commodities though I have my favorites. They are not all equal.

But what your young student produces on it is not a commodity. High school, college etc should always be backed up online automatically. Synced with "the cloud" . We got the paid Sugar Sync for them. It even has a 5gb free edition which can easily cover what a student creates. I have not used MS Skydrive but this is also a sync service meaning the young skull full of mush does not have to be pro-active. If he is online then what he creates is being backed up evertime the save button is pushed

MS Skydrive is free 7gb and only $10 a year for 40gb...what a deal!

For those of you who picked up and tried out this laptop, how bad are the speakers? Are they really as bad as a cell phone speaker?

I'm using a lenovo l420 right now and the toshiba i bought last night's speakers are comparable to this computer, nothing special whatsoever but its also fully what i expected from a laptop at this price point.

This price point is fantastic specifically because of the processor and memory, those are the key components i used to make the decision, and that it's a toshiba, a brand i've personally had good luck with. speakers are enough to "hear" audio from a video but I would never want to watch a movie with these speakers. Headphones are the solution....

Repeating my previous post...they are really really bad! Way worse than a cell phone or Tablet speakers.
Believe me I got a bunch of cell phones and Tabs and there is no one as worse as these laptop speakers.
Good bass reproduction is not expected from a laptop speakers but in this build, it looks like they have used tweeters instead mid range oriented speakers because the sound is very low and only produces high frequencies and when you try to increase the volume the resulting sound just hurt your ears. There is no medium and bass at all!
It is decent machine for the money but try it in store with a music or movie before buying it or use a headset or external speakers. The regular windows 8 sounds are acceptable.

What a shame. 6gb/fastest i3/ 640gb @$299 is as good as its gets for new. I would jump on this but have another deal coming for 17.3" which Dell and Lenovo outlets just can't get rid of. More demand for 15.6" so in some cases the 17.3" are going cheaper

What deal did you find that's this competitive for a 17.3"? I was actually hoping to get a large 17.3" Lenovo if I could find these specs at this price point...please share!

the HDD went bad on my i7 toshiba lappy after 11 months, they fixed it for free within 6 days so I guess the warranty is dependable (only 12 month warranty tho)

I lucked out and got Lenovo outlet doorbuster 17.3" G780. i5/6gb/windows8 just below $300. Refurbished just came today. Will open box tomorrow

But aside from that Dell has been having good outlet deals on 17.3" this week. Here is one that worked out yesterday when i tested it >>> http://slickdeals.net/f/6002634-17-laptop-Dell-OUTLET-Inspiron-17R-5520-3rd-Gen-i5-3210-6GBram-1TB-HD-389-tax-or-339-tax-with-GC-deal-or-less-with-other-techniques?v=1 MATTER OF FACT is was here at 715PM EST FRIDAY (today) at raw price of $589 for scratch&dent with all discounts $339. >>>>>>>> Coupon it came in at $389.00 then w Dell cards trick it comes in $50 cheaper. And that's a ULV type of i5 processor so nice!

A few days before an i3/17.3"/4gb was going for $399 at the Dell outlet refurbished

I got the laptop and the speakers were pretty damn bad but I was able to fix the sound to my satisfaction.

What I did was right click on the speaker icon in the task bar. Select playback devices, select the speakers, select properties, go into enhancements, then select equalizer. On the bottom, you should then be able to choose one of a few settings, I chose bass since I thought that was the best, or you can also adjust it to your own specifications. The sound isn't perfect but it's much better than what the speakers were producing before. Hope this helps anyone who has purchased the laptop!
