HP, Everex and Lenovo specials at Tigerdirect

The laptop tigers have broken free! We have three specials hot off the cyber stove at Tigerdirect! We will present them in ascending price order. So without further ado, let's get started!

Starting at $500, after a $50 mail-in rebate, we have the HP 530 laptop. If the name sounds strange, it's because it's a Celeron laptop, using a Celeron M 520 1.60GHz processor, with a 15.4" widescreen display. Weight is around 6 pounds, it has one Type I/II PC Card Slot, and Vista Home Basic. It has 1gb PC2-5300 DDR2 memory, occupying one of the two available slots, and a 120gb hard disk drive, along with DVD burner and b/g wireless.

At $600, Tiger offers the Everex StepNote SA2053T, without any rebates, which I am sure will thrill some out there. This StepNote ...sings with an Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor T2080 at 1.73ghz, has 1gb DDR2 memory (but only one slot total, with max memory supported 2 gigs), 100gb hard disk drive, one ExpressCard slot, dual layer dvd burner, b/g wireless, and a 12.1" WXGA widescreen display. This makes it popular with fans of smaller laptops in width. If you are not familiar with it, there are 17 user reviews posted at the Tiger page mentioned above (and below).

Your face is your password! That's right! I haven't gone crazy, it is true! The new Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 Notebook is powered by anIntel Pentium Dual-Core T2330 1.60GHz processor, 2GB of DDR2 memory, a 160GB hard disk-drive, a Dual Layer DVD burner, a lovely 15.4" widescreen display (WXGA). It also has a built-in webcam, 802.11a/b/g Wireless, and everyone's "friend", Windows Vista Home Premium. The price you ask for all that? $730 after a $50 MIR. The rebate expires 03/31/08, but don't wait for March Madness before you submit it :)
