Notebook computers at Fry's Electronics this week

Let's see what Fry's electronics has in store for us this weekend.

At $500 even, and without a rebate is the Toshiba Satellite A215-S7407, tempting potential buyers with its AMD Athlon 64 X2 DC 1.8Ghz, 1gb RAM, 80gb disk, supermulti format dvd burner, 15.4" widescreen, wireless and Vista Premium. A versatile laptop at that price, but obviously it does have some trade-offs compared to laptops at twice the price. Nevertheless this is not just for email and browsing, the dual processors give it some punch.

If you prefer a smaller sized laptop, the Toshiba u305-s7432 is available for $700, and it features a 13.3" widescreen, Pentium DC T2310, 1gb memory, 80gb disk, dvd burner, built-in webcam, and the like. Not bad, given that this is Satellite!

Toshiba offers an affordable 17" laptop as well, the Satellite P205-S7429 for $800. It has some similar specs as the S7407 mentioned above, but with a 120gb hard disk. Obviously the 17" display is the deciding factor for this one, geared towards fans of that.

Sony fans will be thrilled that they can get the Sony Vaio NR160E/S for $800 without rebates, which features an Intel® Core 2 Duo Processor T5250, 1GB memory, 160GB hard disk, 15.4" WXGA display, dvd burner, wireless and the obligatory Vista Premium. Those who want to spend more and get a smaller laptop, can take a look at the Sony VGN-CR240E/B for $1150.

Samsung offers the ultra mobile Samsung Q1U V A110 for $1100. This is a 7" touchscreen tablet PC, with a split QWERTY built-in keypad, a 1024x600 display, Vista Premium, and an A110 Intel processor running at 800 Mhz. It has prismatic LiIon batteries which in theory save space while providing plenty of juice. It also has 1gb memory, 60gb hard disk at 4200rpm, wireless, bluetooth, built-in SD/MMC memory card slot, and more.
