Guest post by Thrifty NW Dad – Thought this might be something everyone would be interested in, if you’re in the market for a new laptop!
Very quickly, as I’m running out to go to a training for work, I noticed Wal-Mart’s ad in the Sunday paper, and they have a Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM laptop with 3GB of Memory for a mere $298! It only has a 160 GB hard Drive but it does come with Windows Vista (which can be upgraded to Windows 7 for free when it is released). The laptop will use a 2.10 GHz AMD Sempron SI-42 processor and Nvidia GeForce 8200M graphics. Quantities are limited, so call your local store before heading out. This would be a perfect light-use laptop for surfing the web or other general use applications. This is probably the best deal on a laptop (much better than most netbooks!) I’ve ever seen.
