Acer Aspire AS4315-2004 for $350 (in-store only)

Drop everything and run to your local Radio Shack store! Well, almost. Because for just $350, you can get the Acer Aspire AS4315-2004icon laptop. This deal is only good in-store, you cannot get it online.

Now the price is $350 and with good reason, it has an Intel Celeron M530 processor (1.73GHz), which is not a dual-core. So ideally you should get this if you plan to use this computer for lightweight applications, like reading email or lightweight web-browsing and light office work.

Considering the price point, this is an alternative to the Netbooks that are so popular these days, but instead of getting a NetBook, you would be getting a "real laptop".

The specs include a 14.1" widescreen display (1280x800 rez), 80gb disk, cd burner (with dvd-rom, no dvd burner), 512MB of DDR2 667MHz memory (max 2gb), WiFi (b/g), Ethernet, and things like that.

As you can see, this is not your average 2008 laptop, however if the feature set and the price-point do it for you, then it's a good deal for you. Otherwise, you are better off with one of the 2008 models, which will cost more, but also have more features.
