Hot laptop deals at Office Depot this week!

Let's take a look at what Office Depot has in-store and online for us in the world of notebooks and laptops!

We start with a very nice price from a well known brand, the Toshiba Satellite A205-S5803 for $450 after $135 in mail-in rebates. This model is an Office Depot exclusive according to their ad. So what do you get at this price point? An Intel Pentium Dual-Core T2330 processor, a
15.4" TRUBRITE™ wide display, 1GB DDR2 memory, 120GB hard disk drive, dvd burner, b/g wireless, and such. This is a limited quantity offer, and there are no rainchecks.

We continue at the $600 price point, after a $100 mail-in rebate, with an unnamed HP Pavilion laptop. This mystery laptop which can be custom-configured to your needs has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core TK-57 processor, 3gb of memory (yes, three gigs), 120gb hard disk drive, and a 15.4" widescreen display. It also has a dvd burner, b/g wireless LAN, Vista Premium and the usual assortment of features at this price level.

Not a mystery at all, is the HP Pavilion dv2718us 14.1in. Widescreen Notebook Computer With AMD Turion(TM) X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-62, offered for $700 after two mail-in rebates totalling $185. Remember, if you are submitting mail-in rebates, to follow the instructions, make copies of everything, and keep track of them. One way to organize them is put all your rebates in a manilla folder, and check them out every couple of weeks to see what has arrived and what has not. Once you receive a check, remove the paperwork of that particular from the folder, so you are always up to date.

But enough rebate talk, let's see the basic specs of the dv2718us. The processor is an AMD Turion X2 DC TL-62, 3gb of memory, 14.1" widescreen display, 160gb hard disk drive, dual layer dvd burner with lightscribe, built-in webcam, wireless LAN, and Vista Premium. Quantities are limited however, so don't sleep on it!

Next up, at $850 after two mail-in rebates of $185 we find the HP Pavilion dv9727us. This Office Depot exclusive model features an AMD Turion™ 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-60 processor, 3gb ddr2 memory, 250gb hard disk drive, a lovely 17" widescreen display, dvd burner with lightscribe, built-in webcam, wireless, Vista and the usual assortment of features at the sub-$1000 level. This is ideally suited for people who like 17" wide displays, which are in contrast to the newer and popular and much more expensive smaller and smallish wee-eee ultracompacts.

And now something for Sony fans, at the Sony price of $1150, but without any rebates, which thrills haters of rebates. What is it? It is the Sony VAIO VGN-CR320E. It has 14.1" XBRITE-ECO Widescreen, powered by the Intel Centrino Duo Core 2 T7250, 2GB DDR2 memory, 250GB hard disk drive, dual layer dvd burner, built-in webcam, Next-Gen wireless (abgn), and Vista Premium. But it also has Bluetooth technology!
