Eleven laptops on Circuit City this week

This week's Circuit City circular has a total of eleven notebooks advertised. Enough for a football or soccer team. Although I highly recommend keeping your laptops away from the football or the soccer field ;-) We will present them with the lower price first, because we all love low prices! But first, they have a special offer for all except for HP and Compaq laptops: Free CA internet security software and free Lexmark X2580 printer after $150 in mail-in rebates. Oh by the way, we will be saying MIR for mail-in rebate, and AMD 64X2DC for AMD 64 X2 Dual Core. Every single one of these lovelies includes Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, so we won't be mentioning it in the individual paragraphs below. It reduced the spec clatter :-)

Starting at $500 after $100 MIR is the Toshiba Satelite L45-S7423. This 15.4" widescreen is powered by an Intel Pentium dual core T2310, and has 1gb memory, 120gb hard disk, dvd burner, wireless.

Next up at $570 after a $50 MIR is the HP Pavilion DV6605s. This 15.4" BrightView widescreen is powered by an AMD Athlon 64X2DC TK-55, 1gb ram, 160gb disk, dvd burner with lightscribe, wireless.

And now we have a Circuit City exclusive model, at least that's what they claim anyways, the Acer Aspire AS5630-6288. Don't you just love these user friendly model names? This puppy costs $650 after $80 MIR. It has an Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo blah blah blah T5500, 2gb memory, 160gb disk, 15.4" crystalbrite widescreen, wireless, dvd burner, built-in webcam.

If you want some help in setting up your home wireless network, they have created a bundle of the Firedog service needed to do that, and the HP DV6605us for $670 afte a $50 MIR. As you can see, the DV6605us is also offer above stand alone, so this is only for those who want the Firedog service, otherwise, you would be paying an extra $120. And we don't want you to spend more than necessary here at Notebooks Etc! Unless of course you are planning to send us an early XMas present, in that case, spend spend spend ;-)

Another Circuit City Exclusive appears, the Toshiba A215-S7444, for $730 and *gasp* no rebates! This is an AMD 64X2DC TL-58, 2gb ram, 200gb hard disk, 15.4" widescreen, dvd burner with labelflash, Nextgen wireless (a/b/g/n/), built-in webcam and more.

But if you are a fan of bigger screens, for an extra $20 more and no rebates, you can get the Toshiba P205-S6307. Be advised though this is a closeout, so your mileage may vary. It has an Intel Pentium DC T2130 processor, 1gb memory, 160gb disk, wireless, dvd burner with labelflash.

An extra $30, at $770 after a $50 MIR will get you the HP DV2419us. This Circuit City exclusive is a closeout model, but it doesn't stop it from having an AMD 64X2DC TL-56, 2gb ram, 160gb disk, next-gen wireless along with the alphabet soup, dvd burner with lightscribe, built-in bluetooth and webcam, and a 14.1" Brightview screen. Yes, fourteen inch monitor.

From exclusives we now go to Special edition models, the HP DV6458SE. Also a closeout model with perhaps limited availability, this $900 laptop after a $50 MIR is powered by an AMD 64X2DC TL-60, 2gb ram, 160gb disk, nextgenwireless, dvd burner with lightscribe, 12-cell battery, built-in webcam, and 15.4" widescreen.

Up next the Toshiba A205-S4777 for $950 after absolutely no rebates. Kudos to Toshiba for that, but how about some user friendly model names please? So what do you get for $950? An Intel Centrino core 2 duo T5450, 2gb ram, 200gb hard disk, nextgen wireless, dvd burner with labelflash, built-in fingerprintn reader and webcam, and more.

Into the four figures we go with the HP dv9548us for $1200 after $150 MIR. This Circuit city exclusive model features an Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo T5450, 2gb ram, 200gb disk, nextgen wireless, dvd burner with lightscribe, 256mb dedicated video memory which is important for those running video-intensive applications, and a trio of built-in, TV Tuner (hooray!), fingerprinter reader and webcam.

Last but certainly not least, is the Sony Vaio VGNFZ240/EB for $1300 but no rebates. Thanks for the user-friendly name Sony! This puppy has an intel centrino core 2 duo T7250 brain, 2gb memory, 250gb disk, 15.4" Xbrite-ECO wide screen display, next-gen wireless, dvd burner, and builtin webcam. As you can decipher from the model name, this is a Sony Vaio FZ entertainment PC. The purchase will certainly entertain Sony's accountants :-)
