I'm looking for a laptop. Anyone who see's something, I'd appreciate you posting it here.
Any other deals could be shared here as well.
Also looking for a laptop. So far the best thing I have seen is at Best Buy. They have a 14" HP touchscreen laptop for $550 with a decent amount of memory. I'd prefer to find one for a little less than that and I don't care to have the touch screen.
any special thing you are looking for in a laptop? Brand name, gaming, etc?
I also need a laptop. Looking for a great processor, and something that IS NOT made by Toshiba.
here is a lenovo G580 15.6-Inch Laptop with a i5 for $499 with free shipping.
Amazon.com: Lenovo G580 15.6-Inch Laptop (Glossy Brown IMR): Computers Accessories
47" 1080p Theater 3D LCD HDTV, 4 HDMI, 2 USB, 200,000:1, 120Hz, 802.11n, VIZIO Internet Apps, SRS StudioSound
for $530. (refurbished)
I've heard something about RAM, and that you usually want a good amount. This laptop has 4 GB, which seems to be about standard...is that usually enough?
Depends on what you are doing but yes, generally you want a good amount.
I have 3 computers at my desk at work and all have 4G on them. I use 1 PC for development and 2 for testing and have never had an issue with any as far as memory is concerned. I did have a HD go out on me but that is something entirely different.
$139 for a 240gb solid state hard drive found on slickdeals.net, a sight dedicated to finding good bargains on the internet, was the most eye popping thing I've seen so far.
For those of you into gaming (and can afford it) alienware is having a cyber monday deal. $455 off on configurations - limited time only.
can also save up to $200 off any alienware system and 15% off gaming accessories.

check out woot.com also. They have some pretty good deals.
I mainly need mine for home. We have an Ipad but our old laptop is about dead, it was a really nice Toshiba but it's 5 years old now. My wife wants it for word processing, printing, and she'll use it for editing pictures. I have a Dell M6500 that has every bell and whistle for work, it weighs more than a desktop so I'm looking for something smaller.
Anyone have an opinion on HP? TigerDirect has this one on sale:
Garbage. Garbage. Garbage. I'll never buy another one again. A few years back my dad, brother and I all bought HP laptops around the same time (3 different models too). Within 2 years all three of them were completely dead.
There is a reason that HP usually has the lowest price - you are buying crap
It's just my Pimp Boot. Dat's to get the honeys: http://youtu.be/uqBfQJb2cS8?t=1m2s
was it the HW or the SW?
I have had a couple of HP laptops with no problem other than SW. My current laptop at home is HP and my development PC at work is HP. I have had both for several years and like I said, the only issues I have had were SW related.
Any thoughts on other brands like Asus?
Hardware on all three. Mobo problems. I did a lot of research on them after the fact and found complaints about the same problem on all three models.
I've built a few PCs in the past and used ASUS components with good results, so I'd probably say that their laptops are probably decent.
Looking for a quality tv under $200 for college dorm room. Under $150 preferably.

Avoid HP. I did manufacturers warranty work on their stuff for years and have handled thousands of them. They have covered up issues for years and given customers the run around. At one time they had a chip on approx 2 million pc's in the market worldwide that would get so hot it would combust. The chip was so bad it couldnt make it past quality testing many timed right after replacing the motherboard. I saw systems get 5-6 boards installed on one trip to the service center before the system finally passed QC. Even though their engineers worked right along side of us "lowly" technicians and saw this happening frequently (we even filmed it catching on fire) they denied it was an issue until it was out of warranty. HP is pure garbage and even if they made a good machine I would not suggest buying from them given the way they handled the issue I spoke of.
I worked for them for awhile too and I always told folks they made the best hardware on the market. The downside is if it breaks you are screwed. Their tech support (where I worked) was run by idiots and they purposely gave folks the run around all the time when they couldnt diagnose the issue properly. Its been about 8 years since I worked there so I cant say if theyve changed. As mentioned they do make the best hardware out there. I was leaving the repair center when ASUS started to make PC's and laptops but they had issues like all the others. Nowadays if you stay away from HP all the rest are about the same. Its just like buying a car. Hopefully you dont get the lemon. Just from my experience of working on thousands upon thousands of them over the years I would go with Dell and Lenovo with Toshiba being my third choice. Id avoid Sony (think they quit making laptops anyway), HP and others.
I've got lucky on my HP. Going a few years on, my mother has the same model. My GF's HP though (cheaper model) is pretty much useless as a laptop. Battery no longer charges on it.
I've notice most of the cheap HP (sub $500 models) have a high return rate. The more top of the line ones don't. Lenovo however makes a better quality product.
I hate HP.
I'm also looking for a new laptop. Let us know if you see any holes on this one. Thanks.

Here's a site that often has a ton of laptops. It is a deals site too, and I think they have some deal with Dell because they have lots of them on there. I also saw a lot of Lenovo. Not sure how good the deals are on the laptops, because I'm not in the market and have nothing to compare, but I've seen really good deals on other things there before.

The DV6000 series was the worst model I had the (dis)pleasure of working on. And they need working on a lot. Is that the model she has?
