Best laptop deals at Best Buy this week

The new Best Buy weekly circular is out! So what are the best laptop deals featured there? Let us take a quick look!


Front page deal: Toshiba L305D-S5895
The front page deal is a $500 Toshiba laptop "value meal". Value meal? Well, the technological equivalent. You also get a Targus slipcase and the Trend Micro Antivirus software package. These are bonus from the store, they are not included standard with the laptop. The laptop itself is the Satelite L305D-S5895, a Best Buy exclusive model, with an AMD dual-core processor, 3gb memory, 250gb disk and 15.4" widescreen. And of course the usual assortment of everyday feature one would come to expect from the $500 laptops of 2008.

But that's not all, they are also running a promotion for eighteen months of no interest storewide, if your total purchase is $499 or more. The laptop is $499.97, os even if you don't buy anything else, you would qualify. Of course if you do select this, be sure to put a GIANT calendar NOTICE to make sure you pay off the laptop loan before the end of the 18-month term. That means be done with it by late May 2010. That feels like a long time, but time does ...fly!


Best of the rest
It may be a great price, but with limited supply, the chances of finding this in-store are not very high. I am talking about the $400 Acer Aspire EX4630-4658. Yes, just four hundred, and of course as always, no rebates at Best Buy. This is a nice deal though, a 14.1" widescreen, which means you find a middle ground between a workable screen size and mobility and battery life. At least some people do. This also has a Pentium dual-core processor, 2gb memory, 120gb disk, and things like that.

The other noteworthy laptop is the Toshiba A355D-S6889 for $600, and this is a neo-widescreen laptop, with a new emerging size, sixteen inches of display. Diagonally measures as usual of course. The other specs include an AMD dual-core, 4gb memory (nice), 320gb disk, and things like that.

All these take us to Thanksgiving. Then the Thanksgiving "Black Friday" madness begins. Stay tuned for more...
