Two great laptops during Columbus Day weekend at Staples!

The big bruh-ha-ha laptop of the weekend is the Compaq Presario F730us for just $450 after a $30 mail-in rebate. This is the real deal folks. You get an AMD Athlon 64 X2 DC TK-55, 1gb RAM, 120gb hard disk, supermulti dvd burner with lightscribe, wireless, 15.4" widescreen and Vista Premium. This is nice for a sub $500 laptop. Very nice!

The second laptop of the weekend circular is the Acer Aspire AS7720 at $700 without any rebates! This is ideal for those who like 17" widescreen monitors because it has one :) You also get 2gb of RAM with this guy and 160gb of disk, which is interesting to trade-off over the F730us. Rounding up the features is Vista Premium, dvd burner, wireless, built-in webcam, and Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo T5250.

Bought this just for the Columbus Day sales price at Staples. Looks like a good deal, even w/ the "bloatware".

Wonder how well Linux runs on it?

Looks like an awesome deal for that price. Congrats!

I do not know how Linux does on this, but I remember reading discussions about Linux on Presarios (and their HP equivalents) in some of the notebook forums. I can't recall any details.
