Notebook deals at Circuit City this week (2/24 to 3/1)

Let's take a look at what Circuit City has in-store (and online) for us for the week of Sunday February 24 through Saturday March 1, 2008!

We start with the most affordable laptop listed in the sunday paper circular, which you can also check online.

The most affordable one is the Acer Aspire AS4720-4721, which features tempting price-tag of $480, without mail-in rebates, which is always nice. As you can expect with a sub-$500 laptop, it won't have the same feature as a sub-$700 laptop, but if you don't need the extra features, then the price is right! So what do you get with this guy? You get 5.4 pounds of a box that contain a 1.66GHz Intel Pentium Dual-Core T2330 processor, 1gb ddr2 memory, a 160gb hard disk drive, super-multi format dvd burner, b/g wireless, 14.1" widescreen display, Vista Home, built-in memory card reader and webcam, along with an ExpressCard/54 slot. As you can see this Acer notebook is value-packed in features.

At $650, you can have the Gateway M-6834, which is a mid-size laptop, with a 1.67GHz Core 2 Duo T5450 processor, 2gb of DDR2 memory, 160gb hard disk drive, 802.11abgn wireless LAN - which includes the Next-Generation wireless, double layer dvd burner, 15.4" widescreen display (1280x800 WXGA), Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 and 384MB of shared video memory stolen from main memory. Also a built-in webcam, media card reader slot, and ExpressCard/54. Did I forget to mention the Vista Home Premium? :)

A mid-size laptop, at the price of $650 after a $100 mail-in rebate, the Sony VAIO VGN-NR260E/S has an 1.6GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core T2330 processor, 2gb memory, 200gb hard disk drive, supermultiformat dvd burner, 15.4" widescreen, b/g wireless, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 using shared memory, ExpressSlot/34, memory card reader, webcam, and 6.2 pounds in weight. The price is very right, especially if you are a fan of the Sony brand!




And now to the Toshiba Satellite A205-S6812. The price is $800, without any rebates. What does it offer? A 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo T5450 processor, 2gb memory, 250gb hard disk, 15.4" widescreen, dvd burner which can also play HD-DVDs (not so hot now since HD-DVD has lost the format wars to BluRay), and the utility features such as webcam, memory card reader and ExpressSlot/54, along with a/b/g wireless. Weight is 6 pounds.

A mid-size laptop is the Toshiba Satelite A215-5822, offered for $650 after instant online exclusive savings. What makes this laptop worth a $600+ price-tag you ask? Well, it has an AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 processor, 2gb memory, 200gb 5400rpm hard disk drive, 15.4" widescreen display, and super-multi-format dvd burner with labelflash. The wireless support is AGN, and N stands for the next-generation technology, and that's a good thing! Video duties are handled by ATI Radeon X1200 graphics with 319MB of shared video memory "grabbed" from the main memory. On the utility front, it has a built-in webcam, memory-card reader and an ExpressCard/54 slot. Usually the ExpressCard slot is one of the things absent from the sub-$500 laptops, so that's something to consider if you are trading off the various options out there.





Round-up of the remaining deals

The HP TX1410US, a convertible if you like, with a swiveling display, is offered at $1000 after a $50 MIR. MIR of course being a mail-in rebate. Meanwhile at $1150, no rebates, you can get the Sony VGNFZ340EB. Sony fans this is for you! Also, Circuit city is offfering a special 12 months no interest financing for purchases over $249. Be sure to check all the terms and conditions before jumping in. An informed consumer is a "fill in the blanks" :)
