Can anyone tell me which laptop is a better deal?

Recommended Posts

I am getting ds 15 a laptop for Christmas. All of his classes are online this year and we are down to one Macbook that is really mine. I've decided it's not just cheaper to get a PC, but that it's been so long since we've had one that I think it would be good for him to get used to using one in case he would need to do so in the workplace someday. He will be on the internet, using Office, maybe taking a computer class through Landry in a year or so, using it with his video camera (or he can use the Imovie on the Mac). It's been a LONG time since I've had a PC and I feel like I don't even know what I'm looking at, even after research.


We are trying to stay under $400 and this is what I've found....


Radio Shack has this 15.6" Intel® Pentium® Processor B950 Toshiba for $349 this week....



Best Buy ran out of their special deal but not before I spend an hour on the phone with them. In lieu of the other deal, they are offering me a $379 price of this Toshiba 14" Intel® Core™ i3-2310M.



or (and this would be a stand in line and get lucky thing) Office Depot has a few 15.6" Intel Core 1-3 for $399 Friday morning




Thanks for any help or advice you might have!

If you want new, my advice is to check out slickdeals.net. I've always found the best deals on new computers there. If you aren't adverse to buying a rebuilt computer, that's my preference. We buy ours from a guy who builds us a super fast computer, and sells it for about half the price of a new low end computer. We found him on Craigslist, and so far we've purchased two that way. I'll never go back to new!
