Hot laptops deals at Circuit City this week?

All apologies for the delay, but we finally got around to them! These are the laptop deals at Circuit City this week. It's only Wednesday, they are good until the close of business on Saturday, assuming of course they haven't ran out of stock. So, let's get started.

And we start with the Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804 tantalizing buyers with its $480 no-rebate price. As of right now, it appears to be out of stock online. Circuit City does offer an email notification service, and if we find out that it is indeed back in-store for online purchase, we will post it here. But why did it sell out? Apart from the Toshiba brand, it has an Intel Pentium Dual-Core T2330 processor, 1gb of ddr2 memory, 120GB hard disk drive, super multi format dvd burner, wireless 802.11b/g, 15.4" widescreen display, and Windows Vista Home Premium. You also get an Express Card Slot 54, and the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 which uses shared memory as one would expect in this price range. Overall this is a nice sub-$500 laptop and the Toshiba brand certainly adds to its value - at least to those who like the Toshi brand :)

Next up, at $650, we find the Acer Aspire AS5920-6914, which has a 15.4" widescreen display, Intel Core 2 Duo T5450, 2gb ddr2 memory, 250gb hard disk drive spinning at 5400rpm, super-multi format dvd burner, abgn wireless, built-in webcam. Also, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100, ExpressCard/54 slot, and built-in memory card reader. The UPC number is 099802363154.

For just $30 more but after a $50 mail-in rebate you can get the HP Pavilion DV2710US. This laptop has a one per household limitation and is powered by the AMD Turion™ 64 X2 Dual-Core TL-60 processor. It has 2GB memory and a 160GB hard drive. Also included built-in wireless b/g, dvd burner with LightScribe, built-in webcam, Vista™ Home Premium, and 14.1" BrightView widescreen. As far as we can tell, this is not available for online purchase.

If you want to feed your HP and Compaq laptops some extra juice, they do have a sale on an extra battery, the HP EV089AA. This is a 12-Cell Li-Ion Extended Life Laptop Battery, going for $100, and without the need to submit any rebates. The Circuit City website mentions that it is compatible with HP Pavilion dv2000, dv6000; Compaq Presario V3000, V6000 series laptop computers. Be sure to check the HP and Compaq websites for compatibility or consult their customer support if it is not clear as to whether they are compatible or not. There are 72 customer reviews on the battery at the Circuit City product page mentioned above.

At $800, no rebate, we find the Toshiba Satellite A215-S5822, with an AMD Turion 64 X2 DC TL-60, 2gb memory, 200gb hard disk drive, dvd burner with labelflash, a/b/g/n wireless, built-in webcam, 15.4" widescreen display, built-in memory card reader, Express Slot 54, and such.

If you like big screen laptops, take a look at the HP Pavilion DV9730US for $950, after a $50 mail-in rebate. But you are getting more than just a big screen, this puppy is powered by the AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-64 processor, 3 gigabytes of ddr2 memory, and a 250gb hard disk drive. Also inside you will find a built-web cam, a/b/g/n wireless, supermultiformat dvd burner with lightscribe, express card 54 slot, built-in memory card reader and lots more. Interested?

And now we go from a big screen to a smaller screen and laptop, one using a 13.3" widescreen display. Which one is it? It is the Toshiba Satellite U305-S2812 for $950, without any rebates even. This has an Intel Core 2 duo T5500 processor, 2gb memory, 250gb hard disk drive, super multi dvd burner, next-gen wireless N, express card 54 slot, built-in webcam and memory card reader. Weight is 4.5 pounds, and there are 10 product reviews of it at the Circuit product page mentioned above.

Last but certainly not least is the Sony Vaio VGNFZ340EB for $1150, without any rebates. Apart from the Sony brand and Sony design, you get an Intel® Centrino® Processor, 3GB memory, 250GB hard drive, Intel® Next-Gen Wireless N+a/b/g, dvd burner, Built-in Webcam, Vista™ Home Premium, built-in Bluetooth® technology, and 15.4" XBRITE-ECO™ widescreen. As far as we can tell this is not available for online orders, but we could be wrong.

And this concludes the weekly round-up of the Circuit City laptop deals. Stay tuned for more specials. And don't forget to subscribe to our full-text RSS feed!
